Students Answer Skill Shortage
Answering the current skill shortage there are 30,000 skilled tertiary students available to start work today. Record low unemployment figures released this week highlight the increasing skill and labour shortages and students are able to bridge these.
“Employers struggling to fill orders and meet client demands are turning to SJS for everything from Santa Claus’ to accountants,” says Andrew Kirton, National Chairperson of Student Job Search (SJS).
“Students are the ideal people to fill employment gaps. They are affordable and, with the help of SJS, very accessible. New Zealand tertiary institutions are brimming with keen students who have much needed skills for the workplace,” he says.
SJS advertises all kinds of jobs for tertiary students. From skilled, technical positions to clerical, hospitality and retail positions, full-time, part-time or casual, they are able to find the ideal student to fill the gap.
“You might think you’ve got ages to beat the Christmas rush in your business but with only a few weeks to go it makes sense to organise extra help now. With Christmas parties to organise, household jobs to catch up on, and the retail rush to get through, a student employee could be the perfect solution to help you over the next few weeks,” says Mr Kirton.
Employers can contact SJS through their website www.sjs.co.nz or call any one of the local branch offices to place a job vacancy. SJS helps new employers with every step of the employment process and can provide expert guidance on wage rates and employment issues as well.
