Jobs hub opens door to constructive work
Employment Minister Willie Jackson has welcomed the work of initiatives aimed at preparing rangatahi for work.
He says more than a third of the 500 plus people who have been through the Auckland CBD Jobs and Skills Hub have been Maori.
The hub’s purpose is to support commercial activity in the city by connecting employers and local job seekers, facilitating workforce skills development opportunities and supporting sustainable employment.
He also praised the Southern Initiative in Auckland which works with whanau, local social change agents, grassroots entrepreneurs, local businesses and government agencies to create a prosperous and resilient South Auckland.
As minister he wants to address the fact people in south Auckland still experience high levels of unemployment, underemployment and low wages.
