Posted at 6:00am Thursday 19 Nov, 2020 | By Pat Deavoll editor@thewanakasun.co.nz

Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) has announced it will be hosting the Central Lakes Jobs Fair, an event aimed at helping employers with vacancies connect with members of the community looking for work.

For those in Wānaka who wish to attend, transport will be arranged, and people are asked to register for a seat in advance.

 Taking place on Thursday 26 November from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm at the Queenstown Memorial Centre, the Jobs Fair has plenty of employers with vacancies registered to take part.

 Mayor Jim Boult said the Central Lakes Jobs Fair marked a continuation of work by Council to assist the Queenstown Lakes district's recovery from COVID-19, following the successful 'Jobbortunities' run in October by Clutha District Council and the Mayor's Taskforce for Jobs.

 "I'd highly recommend that anyone looking for work in our district attends the Jobs Fair, as there will be a huge array of employment options available across many industries to help members of our community find new work," Boult said.

 "The event is free to attend, and no ticket is required."

 Representatives from Immigration New Zealand will be at the Jobs Fair to help with visa-related questions.

 Those interested in taking part are also encouraged to take part in a free webinar being run on Wednesday 18 November at 5.00 pm by Melissa Jenner, founder of START Now, detailing how to make applying for and getting a new job easier. 

 The Central Lakes Jobs Fair also coincides with 'Employment – What you need to know about working in Queenstown', a free information session run by Citizens Advice Bureau and being held from 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm at the Queenstown Memorial Centre.

 Those attending can learn more about employment rights and responsibilities, employer responsibilities, along with how to deal with problems in the workplace.
