Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs

South Wairarapa District Council and the Wairarapa Whānau Trust are working in collaboration on an employment initiative to find effective solutions for youth underemployment and labour, and staffing shortages across the region.

This Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) programme in South Wairarapa has been made possible with funding from the Industry Partnerships, Skills for Industry MTFJ Community Recovery Pilot, supported by Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ), MSD and other government agencies.

This initiative is a two-pronged approach: supporting young people to be work-ready and find sustained employment, and supporting businesses to identify staff who is work-ready to cover business commitments and deadlines.

Young people (aged 16-25 years) not in education, employment or training, as well as those displaced as a result of COVID are able to register with the task force. So too can businesses who are in need of staff and who want to be youth-employment ready.

We are committed to working with local businesses, SME’s and those looking for work to provide effective solutions wherever we can.
