Talent Central connects to schools to take small groups of students to visit different industries and businesses.
These trips are focused on students getting a hands-on look at real workplaces, finding out about the different roles and activities that occur there, and engaging with employers directly, to help them decide their future work pathways.
Like many organisations, National Road Carriers (NRC) has had members impacted by employment changes due to Covid-19.
To support its members, NRC is collaborating with Talent Central, to actively assist those people affected within the transport industry throughout New Zealand, to connect with new employment opportunities in the industry, and/or additional training.
NRC provides professional support for those who choose to make a living in the road transport industry. Members include anyone from a single truck or courier van operator, through to large transport operators, transporting everything from fresh fruit to LPG. Having worked with Talent Central previously to engage more people in the transport industry, the collaboration is about supporting affected drivers to get back working again.
