Reasons to live, work and play in Manawatu

This category is simple to explain. We all made choices to live, work and play in Manawatu and often we forget why that is. 

We thought we can share some of those reason with you here on our site and when we see something we might even take a snap and put it on our Pinterest Page

Be Warned - The 2015 regional growth study is a significant body of information and is not a 2 minute read

MBIE Releases The Regional Growth Study

After receiving an update from the good folks at Vision Manawatu I have taken the time to skim read a couple of areas of interest in the report.

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.

CEDA June 2017 - Economic Pulse

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