One Warkworth Business Association has rescheduled its inaugural Mahurangi Employment Expo.
The event, which is a joint initiative with Mahurangi College and the Auckland Business Chamber, will be held at the Warkworth Town Hall on October 1 from 6pm to 9pm.
The expo was due to be held last month but had to be cancelled in the wake of lockdown.
One Warkworth manager Murray Chapman says a wide range of Mahurangi businesses will be represented, including those from the hospitality, engineering, real estate, electrical, plumbing, brewing, banking, medical, boating and building sectors.
Mr Chapman also hopes the police, defence force and tertiary institutions will have stands. He says the event is not just for school leavers.
“There’s people out there who have had their roles disappear because of Covid or know there is a chance the job they are in at the moment might go,” he says.
There will be free seminars on CV writing and job interview techniques.
Mr Chapman adds that the expo is a chance for employers to connect with potential new staff or trainees, and he hopes it will become an annual event.
