$1.2 million for local students

Local students using Student Job Search Manawatu have been placed into work that will earn them over 1.2 million since the 1st of March 2005.

Regional Manager, Barry Dowell stated “it was an outstanding result, both in terms of money earn’t by students and the support received particularly from the local business community.”

Student Job Search and its business brand FutureGrad has been very busy in the Palmerston North business area. Mr Dowell commented “that we are receiving more job offers of an on going nature, which is just great for students”.

Cumulative student earnings are up around 30% from last year, and the average hourly rates have risen to just over $11.07, though many jobs through the FutureGrad programme were considerably higher than this, particularly in the IT arena.

Palmerston North is very much a student city and local businesses are seeing the benefits of utilising the very diverse and highly flexible workforce to help assist in possible skills shortages that some businesses are facing said Mr Dowell.

The non profit organisation, which is funded by student associations and government via study link, provides a free service to both students and employers alike.
