A pop-up employment and training expo is coming to Nelson which will be aiming to bring together employers on the hunt for staff, and any potential job seekers willing to learn more about the industries and try them out.
The Ministry of Social Development has organised the event with support from the Nelson Public Library.
The expo will take place at Elma Turner Library on Friday, December 4 from 11 am – 2 pm.
Employers and training providers will be exhibiting at the pop-up expo and will-in-hopes can speak to as many job seekers as possible about possible employment and training opportunities that is available.
MSD’s Regional Commissioner for Nelson to Tasman regions, Malborough and the West Coast, Craig Churchill, said that employment and training was a key focus of the Ministry since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country hard.
“It’s exciting to partner with the library in this way to provide employers and trainers with another platform for reaching job seekers,” he said.
“We are particularly keen that our young people, heavily affected by job losses through the pandemic, are encouraged to find work and training in our region and to stay here to help us rebuild the economy.”
The Mayor of Nelson Rechel Reese says that they are moving to help connect the city’s employers, trainers and job seekers, together.
“This is a great opportunity, and I encourage all of our job seekers, particularly those under 30, to get along and make what could be a life-changing connection with an organisation that needs you just as much as you need them,” she said.
