What does this activity mean for recruitment in Manawatu?
It means the Manawatu economy is showing evidence of heading forward positively, as employers feel confident about hiring new employees. Remember - this is not national data, political rhetoric or inference these are facts!
It also means that the Manawatu Employment Market is getting more competitive and the best employees will be snapped up quickly.
And unfortunately, it also means talent shortages can quickly result locally. This means the most successful employers will be those who are already prepared to hire Top Talent quickly.
