Tauira Maori look to SJS for jobs
More Māori and Pasifika students are using Student Job Search.
Social Development and Employment Minister Carmel Sepuloni says since March, SJS has sourced 3,742 permanent full-time jobs for students, a 200 percent increase on previous years, and increased Māori and Pacific student registration rates by 14.8 percent.
It has also expanded its graduate services, taking on new staff to source high quality graduate roles and connect employers looking for talented graduates.
Since 2015 students have earned at least half a billion dollars in wages from work provided through Student Job Search – a 2,487 percent return on investment for the Ministry of Social Development.
