We have many more women on the hunt for meaningful, part-time work, so let us know where your gaps are!

Wahine into Work – Workshop Series

After the success of the Wahine into Work Career workshop series in June (in collaboration with Works for Everyone & Te Manawa Community Hub), we are calling for expressions of interest (EOI) to run these again. These three workshops focus on supporting women to understand and play to their strengths, creating a top CV and tips and tricks on delivering what they have to offer with confidence…whether that be the subject of their work or career goals, in an interview/presentation-like environment.

If this is something your business, or someone else’s business you know might benefit from, then email me, Clare, at clare@recruitmum.co.nz with an initial EOI to engage us on delivering.

Till next time…
