Go with Tourism set to launch in Northland
A new platform matching tourism employers with people wanting to join the industry is about to make its debut in Northland, on Thursday 12 December.
Spearheaded by Auckland Tourism, Events & Economic Development (ATEED), Go with Tourism is an online platform that simplifies the recruiting process by connecting employers with potential employees. Go with Tourism launched in Auckland in April this year, and to date has placed more than 100 people in employment.
Following the success of the Auckland launch, the Government awarded funding from the new International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL) to expand the Go with Tourism initiative nationally. Queenstown and Wanaka Lakes District was the first destination on the hit list, launching in October.
Steve Armitage, General Manager – Destination of ATEED, said their mission was to break down barriers and help people find success in tourism. Go with Tourism takes a modernised approach to job search and highlights the opportunities the industry provides.
It breaks down barriers, making the industry more attractive to job seekers and easier to present themselves as a suitable candidate. To ensure a clear future career path for candidates, employers are required to offer a living wage within three years of employment and ensure a sustainable growth role within their company.
Go with Tourism helps employers too, by offering a free service that enables the recruiter to filter candidates down to their perfect match. Additionally, an online knowledge hub that gives employers access to a wealth of knowledge to help them with recruitment and staff retention.
Northland Inc looks forward to welcoming Go with Tourism to our whanau and assisting you in building a better tourism workforce by attracting and promoting new talent.
