Our SoTJobs programme helps NZ employers hiring students and graduates outside of summer, and we are busier than ever before! We’ve filled over 20 grad roles in the past 2 months, and we have another 600+ candidates seeking work right now! If you have an opportunity before summer, suitable for a recent graduate or current student, then we can help.

If you’re feeling that it’s hard to hire tech talent right now, you’re not alone. The awesome folks at Cultivate hosted a panel discussion about a strategic approach to talent management during Techweek in May. The panel covered re-skilling, retaining experienced workers, and ways to grow our young and diverse tech talent through intern and graduate programmes. The video is here.
