New employment portal.
An employment portal is being set up by the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) to help West Coast businesses and workers affected by COVID-19.
The establishment of the portal is one of several initiatives underway aimed at mitigating the impact of COVID-19 on local employment.
Through the portal, DWC will be working with MSD and other regional development agencies to facilitate getting available workers into much-needed employment once the COVID-19 lockdown is removed.
The employment portal will be up and running soon. In the meantime, any businesses that either need staff or have staff to redeploy please visit: https://worktheseasons.co.nz/
