Meet real employers, experience their businesses first-hand, make contacts, land a job in the Logistics, Distribution or Transport industry.

The aim of JobFEST is to provide an easy way for businesses to get in front of employee prospects keen and willing to join the industry. TR Group and Talent Central teamed together with the aim of creating a Transport Industry specific Expo that brought all sectors of the Transport Industry directly in front of employee prospects. Businesses were invited to attend the one-day expo and display their business to year 12 and 13 secondary students, as well as members of the public, interested in joining the Transport Industry.

The expo was intended to be interactive, for exhibitors to bring their vehicles, tools of trade and information about their businesses so that prospective employees could see, touch, and get a real feel for what it would be like to work for, and with their business.

This type of direct link Expo between students and employers had not been tried before in our region, the event held on the 20th of June was the first pilot, breaking new ground. A lot has been learnt that will be taken into future events, learning from the negatives and building on the positives.

JobFest 2018 is now over and we wish good luck to those of you following up on employment opportunities from the event.

We know what a success it was for the businesses exhibiting on the day -  but also for those who attended. If you have a success story from the event - we would love to hear from you!  Email us at jobfest@talentcentral.org.nz
