Mayors Taskforce for Jobs
Getting youth back on the right working track
Mayor Marie Black is pleased and excited to announce the Hurunui District Council has been successful in securing up to $500,000 of funding for a ‘Mayoral Taskforce For Jobs’ (MTFJ) in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Development.
The fund is targeted at youth aged 25 and under who have been displaced by COVID-19, and assisting them with employment opportunities.
HDC has reached out to local businesses and our youth; an offer in providing work experience and skills gaining, with the aim of creating opportunities and a pathway to sustainable employment. HDC has been heartened by the high level of local business support so far for this initiative; seeing the benefits to both the youth and our community.
If you are a business or you know young people who are displaced and looking for work experience please get in touch.
