Tertiary students need 30,000 jobs nationwide

Tertiary students need 30,000 jobs nationwide

Student Job Search urgently needs 30,000 jobs nationwide to satisfy demand from the thousands of tertiary students who finish studying over the next month.

The organisation is calling on employers who may be delaying summer employment positions to bring them forward.

“No student wants to be jobless at this time of the year. Summer employment is crucial to the financial survival of tertiary students and their ability to return to study,” says Andrew Kirton, National Chairperson of Student Job Search (SJS).

“Some employers may not realise how early tertiary students finish studying. We already have 15,000 students available to fill key skill and labour shortages faced by New Zealand businesses and we are facing unprecedented demand for quality duration and skilled jobs this summer,” he says.

SJS advertises all kinds of jobs for tertiary students. From skilled, technical positions to clerical, hospitality and retail positions, full-time, part-time or casual, they are able to find the ideal student to fill the gap.

“You might think you’ve got ages to beat the Christmas rush in your business but with only a few weeks to go it makes sense to organise extra help now. With Christmas parties to organise, household jobs to catch up on, and the retail rush to get through, a student employee could be the perfect solution to help you over the next few weeks,” says Mr Kirton.

Employers can contact SJS through their website or call any one of the local branch offices to place a job vacancy. SJS helps new employers with every step of the employment process and can provide expert guidance on wage rates and employment issues as well.
