Are you an employer or business needing to lift the skill set of your workforce or recruit additional staff?

The Tararua REAP’s Employment Liaison Coordinators will provide ongoing support to enable a streamlined approach for the community to accessing local job opportunities and trained workforce.

The Employment Liaison Coordinators work in the community, with the community and help to facilitate connections into training and employment to ensure:

  • Local people have the appropriate skills for employment and are access and filling local opportunities.
  • Local businesses have access to a workforce with appropriate skills.
  • Support is provided to both employees and employers to ensure their needs are being met.

Employment Liaison Coordinators work alongside a wide range of local businesses responding to needs as they arise.  

The Coordinators will also maintain ongoing meetings with the employers and training providers to ensure their needs are met.

In response to the COVID-19 impact, Tararua REAP regularly engages with local businesses to understand the demands and to coordinate the redeployment of displaced workers.  Tararua REAP has a strong interest in retraining and developing skills in the region.
