Filling Labour Shortages, Speed-dating Style | #speeddating | #tinder | #pof | #blackpeoplemeet | romancescams | #scams


Eight industry training organisations have joined forces
with the Ministry of Education to bring back Got a Trade?
Got it Made! SpeedMeet over August and September in 12
locations.

SpeedMeet gives secondary school students a
unique opportunity to connect with potential employers. And
SpeedMeet can’t come fast enough with some employers
facing labour shortages due to the impacts of
COVID-19.

SpeedMeet provides an interview situation
similar to speed-dating, where students spend six minutes
with employers from a range of trades and service
industries. At the end of each meeting, if both student and
employer want to see each other again, it’s a match, with
contact details shared for another meeting.

“In
order to engage with industry training – or on-the-job
training – people need to be employed fulltime so it’s a
no brainer to support the connecting of jobseekers and
employers,” says SpeedMeet founder Rachael Dippie from
MITO, who developed the concept in 2015.

“SpeedMeet
is an active way to connect secondary school students and
other jobseekers looking for hands-on work to meet directly
with employers looking for new talent.”

Kelly
Henshaw of Scania New Zealand is focused on bringing that
new talent into their industry via apprentice training. With
a shortage of skilled technicians, they’ll attend all
SpeedMeet locations.

“We’re excited to get in
front of as many candidates as possible to talk not only
about how we build trucks but careers as well for our
expanding Kiwi team. In the past we’ve had great success
with SpeedMeet. They are perfect for engaging with potential
new employees.”

The Ministry of Education supports
raising the awareness of opportunities in vocational
pathways for young people and facilitating connection to
employers. “From the events we have been supporting over
the past 18 months we know that over 90% of young people
that attended events like these now feel more prepared with
the skills necessary to be successful in further education
or employment,” says Patrick McKibbin, Business and
Employer Liaison Manager at Ministry of Education.

Got
a Trade? Got it Made! SpeedMeet is taking place in 12
locations, from Whangarei to Queenstown, over August and
September. The industries attending include automotive,
electrical, engineering, hair and beauty, hospitality,
retail, tourism, textile fabrication and much
more.

What: More than 30 employers will ‘speed
meet’ students from 10 Auckland secondary schools to
interview them for potential
apprenticeships.

When: Wednesday 4
August – 0900hrs to 1430 hrs.

Where:
Auckland Seventh Day Adventist High School, 119
Mountain Road, Mangere, Auckland.

schools can register at www.gotatrade.co.nz/events.
