Pick the Bay jobs expo this Thursday

Hawke’s Bay’s Tōmoana Showgrounds is the venue for the next Pick the Bay job expo being held this Thursday to showcase work opportunities in the horticultural sector.

This year, Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Association is leading the event with support from Hastings District Council, Napier City Council, NZ Apples and Pears, Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers, Summerfruit NZ, NZ Kiwifruit Growers, Ministry for Primary Industries, Ministry of Social Development and Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

HB Fruitgrowers Association president, Brydon Nisbet (pictured) said the event was intended to be a relaxed opportunity to meet with and chat to growers about employment options.

“Our growers need a reliable team – they’re keen to offer working conditions with flexibility to suit everyone,” he said.

“With different varieties of fruit comes different types of work, so it’s worthwhile finding out what’s on offer – there’s potentially something for everyone, from students wanting work in the school holidays to those wanting to get a foot in the door to make a career in the industry, to retirees wanting some extra income.”

The Pick the Bay job information session will be held at the Exhibition Hall, Tōmoana Showgrounds Hawke’s Bay, on Thursday, November 3 from 1pm to 6pm.
