The Manawatu has its own Chamber of Commerce and for many businesses being connected to other businesses is critical to your success. If you are new to business or growing your small business then the Chamber will be a helpful source of information and resources.  And the great thing about the Manawatu Chamber of Commerce is the interaction between various businesses, the networking and the events.

Palmerston North City Council

Palmerston North City has very proactive and resourceful Council, and as a proactive council they are not just about regulation and compliance. They have some great resources online and I recommend you have a look at their website. Here are three quick links to some obvious ones:

Manawatu District Council

Palmerston North is the major metropolitan centre in the region but a close second is Feilding. Feilding services much of the rural region, is home to one of New Zealand's premier destinations (Manfeild) and partners closely with Palmerston North, Horowhenua and Tararua councils. Feilding is an attractive town with a relaxed feel and is easily linked to Palmerston North's business community.

    My key tips for job applications

    I was recently on a phone interview with someone who made the statement "I have applied to roles with employer ABC 4 times and have never heard back".

    I hope the tips I'm about to mention help you when applying for any future roles.
