Careers to be showcased at Trucking Show 2018

Careers to be showcased at Trucking Show 2018

In a bid to showcase trucking industry careers to a wider audience, a specific Careers Event is to be held on Friday 9th March 2018 at the TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show 2018.

Schools and training organisations have been invited on hosted tours for a look behind the scenes at various aspects of the trucking industry.

With ongoing and growing shortage in all areas of the trucking industry we wanted to organise an event were groups could be introduced to people who are doing the job says show organiser Carol McGeady. “It will show what’s new in the industry and companies can highlight career pathways, so the participants can start planning their studies,” she said.

Truck rides, a free entry ticket to the Saturday show day and a barbecue will be held as part of the visits. The students will also receive a goodie bag packed with information and giveaways.

Companies are quickly signing up as sponsors, so they can take advantage of this event. Special preference for appointments will be given to sponsors of the TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show.

The invitation went out a few days ago and already registrations have been received from Shirley Boys High, Burnside and Papanui High Schools. This is a great start and it is expected that the bookings will be strong right up to the event.

The industry now needs to get behind this initiative and help by volunteering to take a group around. You can contact Rebecca Dinmore at NZ Trucking Association 021 069 2841
