Manawatu needs 700 jobs over five years as transport and logistics grows

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...

The Manawatu Standard, via www.stuff.co.nz, shared the news that Manawatu's transport and logistics sector is in growth mode, and more importantly that there are 700 jobs required to help its growth path.

See the article below.


This is great news for the region. The transport and logistics industry is giving school leavers a real opportunity to have meaningful career paths. And Talent Central is a big part of helping connect education and employers.

We have been helping connect employees and employers in this sector for years, and are happy to continue supporting the transport and logistics employers through growth. 

The story doesn't end there - as the warehousing, driving and logistics roles will be on the rise, this also signals growth in economic activity in the region. We will need more support staff, managers and suppliers to support these growth businesses.

This is another great reason to live, work and play in the region.
