Career Services opens West Auck satellite office

Career Services opens satellite office in West Auckland

With the opening of a new Career Services satellite office in Henderson people living in Waitakere City can now look forward to accessing the very latest in career information, advice and planning services.

‘We are very excited to be able to offer this service. Up until now people have had to travel into North Shore but now people can book in and be seen in Henderson,” says Elizabeth Lind-Mitchell, Career Services Regional Manager. “This is very much in line with Career Services stated goals to make career information and advice available for all people.”

Initially the branch will operate as an ‘on demand service’ where a client can contact Career Services to arrange an appointment for the Henderson branch. It is envisaged that staff will be available to meet with pre-booked clients for two days per week.

“We will provide a range of services from there including one-on-one career planning, job search skills, CV development and up-to-date information on jobs, labour market trends and training providers,” says Elizabeth. “For clients who do not have internet or phone access they will also be able to access our internet-based KiwiCareers and freephone CareerPoint services.”

All bookings and appointments will still be taken through the North Shore CareerCentre on 0800 109901 or 09-489-2299.

The branch is to be officially opened by the Mayor of Waitakere City, Bob Harvey, on March 14.

Waitakere Mayor Bob Harvey says that in the past two years employment and business growth in his City has been higher than the national average.

“The arrival of Career Services is another important piece in the jig saw which will allow our residents to make more informed choices and, ultimately, get better jobs,” he says.
