I'm getting the hang of blogging.

Robyn's Spring Update

Spring is now here and it's hard to believe that we are starting to think about the upcoming festive season already. I have been talking with local employers about their needs over this time and making plans to have them covered.

Our team have been busy recruiting lately, and if you follow our updates you'll see us sharing what we are seeing and how you can either get a great job or find a great employee. 

CEDA have been conducting regional research and they shared some news recently...

Manawatu and Horowhenua are on the up

There is data - this is not just a feeling

Manawatu and Horowhenua are on the up

We have recently been working with CEDA (and still have some great roles there for people who really love the economic development space), and are aware of some research CEDA had commissioned in 2016. Recently, I heard David Clapperton (CEO Horowhenua District Council) share whats happening in neighbouring Horowhenua.

It was pleasing to get an email today with data showing this Horowhenua trend too.

Choose a Recruitment Partner not a Recruitment Speed-Date

Choose a Recruitment Partner not a Recruitment Speed-Date

Thinking of hiring a staff member and ringing a few agencies? There is a better way.

Try partnering with one recruitment specialist instead!

 

Hiring an employee is about forming an enduring professional relationship – much like forming a personal relationship.

Which is higher quality and sets you up for longer lasting, mutually benefcial relationships?

Speed Date or Partnering?

CEDA June 2017 - Economic Pulse

on Wednesday, 28 June 2017. Posted in Our News, Reasons to live, work and play in Manawatu, News for Employees, Recruitment News

We often speak to people from outside of Manawatu - this interests them

CEDA June 2017  - Economic Pulse

When choosing where to live, work, play or even invest, a little bit of research goes a long way. We are very lucky that our Central Economic Development Agency (CEDA) coordinate and share some of this for the region's benefit.

Here is something that really shows why people are escaping expensive metro locations (like Auckland and Tauranga) to move to Manawatu.

Making tough choices - the easy way

on Monday, 22 May 2017. Posted in Our News, News for Employees, Recruitment News

Make great choices by learning from others' experience/knowledge

I have been lucky enough to get back from leave to a new destination where I knew no-one and had little local knowledge - think white sands, coral reefs, turtles and unknown restaurants, cafes and attractions and you'll understand.

Each day our group reviewed multiple restaurants and suppliers before choosing who to invest money and scarce time in and who to avoid...and we found a system that worked well for us.

It got me thinking how few Manawatu businesses are using these tools.

    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 looked at their application and was suprised at what I saw. They lived in Auckland and had not even taken the time to read that the role was a Manawatu opportunity. I'm not kidding and they were one of many!

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