New Zealand's I Want Work Announces Launch of Website

New Zealand's I Want Work Announces Launch of Website Offering a Place for People to go and Post That They are Looking for Employment

Finding a job in New Zealand has potentially become much easier with the recent launch of the website I Want Work. I Want Work let's users register that they are in need of employment, giving job owners and managers a place to scan listings and see if anyone is a good fit. The early response has been enthusiastic.

September 3, 2015

In a challenging New Zealand job market, sometimes finding work is easier said than done. This makes new tools that can help in this area incredibly valuable. Enter the new NZ-based website I Want Work that offers users a simple way to post and register that they are on the hunt for employment, providing a place for employers to quickly get staff when and where they need them. It's easy to use and offers a win/win on both sides of the job equation.

“We have been driven to create this resource by the fact that until now there has been no where for employers to simply go and find staff as required,” commented a spokesperson from I want Work. “For people seeking employment it's one place they can go to let employers know they are out there and waiting to work.”

According to the company, hiring a new employee shouldn't be an expensive headache. I Want Work is free from the outrageously high charges that employment sites charge job owners to use their platform, which is expected to help build the new site's popularity fast.

Listings can be searched by location with every part of New Zealand represented, making finding an appropriate job hunter even more quick and simple, in addition to being free. As the site grows in popularity this feature should become even more important as a time saver, unlike many less well thought out employment sites in NZ who mix job seekers from a wide range of different locations all together, which can create confusion.

Users have responded with enthusiasm.

Kerry B., from Wellington, recently said, “I was looking for a new job as a cook after my last closed up shop and a friend told me about I Want Work. I made my listing and had a job within a week. Great service and great website. Five stars and fully recommended.”
