Timeline: September 2006 - December 2008
Department of Labour and Accelerating Auckland, with the support of Tourism
Auckland, are planning â€œAuckland Hiring ITâ€, an employment expo for skilled
migrants in Auckland in September 2007. Following a similar format to that of offshore expos â€“ matching employers with jobs with migrants seeking employment in New Zealand â€“ the event will focus on the ICT sector as a pilot for future evets addressing skills shortages in other key sectors.
The pilot focuses on international university graduates, working holiday makers,
tourists, temporary visa holders and skilled workers who may currently not be
working in their field of qualification.
The event is structured to compliment the off-shore recruitment expos by trialling an on-shore approach that can potentially be replicated across sectors and throughout New Zealand and run annually.
