Head along to Tai Poutini Polytechnic’s (TPP’s) Careers Expo this Friday to find out more about employment and training options across the West Coast.

Supported by local businesses and employers, TPP’s annual Careers Expo is a great opportunity for people to find out more about their options to create a better future for themselves – whether you’re just starting out in your career or you’re looking for a change.

The 2018 Careers Expo will be held at the Polytechnic’s Greymouth Campus this Friday 2 November from 11am to 2pm.

As well as information on various training and study options, more than a dozen regional businesses will be there to talk with potential students and employees about the jobs available on the West Coast and what you need to do to get a foot in the door. There will also be free food and coffee to help keep the conversations flowing – so don’t miss out!

TPP Engagement, Communications and Marketing Manager Mequa Hourston says the Careers Expo is a great opportunity for people to connect with West Coast businesses and providers and talk about the job or training options available in the region.

“It’s our role to connect students and the community with industry and business partners to help people find careers right here on the West Coast.

“We’ve been working closely with regional employers in recent times to find out what skills they are looking for in employees and help ensure we are training local people to get in to local jobs. This is one of the ways TPP is connecting with its community to help create opportunities and better futures for everyone.

“I encourage anyone interested in getting started in a career, or looking to change focus or up‐skill, to come along to the Careers Expo this week and take a look at the options available right here at home,” Mrs Hourston says.
