West Coast businesses, employers and training providers will be on hand at the annual West Coast Careers Expo next month to talk about local job opportunities and how to get your career started.

Run by Tai Poutini Polytechnic (TPP), the Careers Expo gives West Coasters an opportunity to find out more about their options to create a better future for themselves – whether just starting out in a career or if they are looking for a change.

TPP is calling on local businesses and employers who wish to take part in the event to make contact today and secure a spot – it won’t cost anything and is a great networking opportunity.

TPP Leader‐ Engagement Mequa Hourston says the event is aimed at a wide range of potential students, from those working in jobs now who would like to extend themselves and take the next step in their careers, through to people looking for their first job.

“It’s a great event where our staff, local businesses and agencies are right there, talking to people about how they can create better futures for themselves.

“You’ll hear first‐hand what’s out there in the job market and learn what you need to do to get a foot in the door.

“It’s also a great way for local businesses and organisations to network with each other – so give us a call and secure a spot.”

The West Coast Careers Expo 2019 will be held on Friday 13 September, from 12pm to 3pm, in the TPP Greymouth Campus Atrium.

There will be free coffee and a barbeque to help fuel discussions for everyone who attends.

Employers who wish to take part in the event, at no cost, can contact Jade on jadek@tpp.ac.nz or 03 769 9495.
