Taranaki businesses need talented people to help them grow their business and drive them forward.

In order to grow the region’s economy, Taranaki needs to continue to grow its population and keep pace with New Zealand. Venture Taranaki works across the talent space – focusing on talent attraction, talent retention, growing talent and inspiring talented people to live and work in the region.

Working with employers and job seekers, as well as profiling the region as a great place to live and work, Venture Taranaki has developed a range of services to assist with growing the region’s talent pool including:

  • Marketing campaigns – identifying and targeting talented people and encouraging them to relocate to Taranaki, Venture Taranaki regularly runs marketing campaigns to attract and capture the interest of the talent the region needs. These include the swapsides and rediscover talent attraction campaigns.
  • Regional jobs website – Venture Taranaki provides a regional jobs website which offers employers the opportunity to post jobs and search talent pools, provides job seekers with the ability to upload CVs for viewing by potential employers, and allows them to search and apply for roles. Additionally, the site offers a wealth of information on what it’s like to live and work in Taranaki.
  • Taranaki Lifestyle Toolkit – a great guide to living and working in the region, available in either hard copy or electronically. Ideal for employers when recruiting new staff, potential new residents and jobseekers alike, the toolkit includes a range of information on what it’s like to live and work in the region, from events to real estate, schools to transport, and much more.

  • Taranaki Employer Toolkit - a comprehensive resource for employers looking to find, keep, grow or let go of staff. View the toolkit here

All these resources are complemented by Venture Taranaki’s Project Manager for Talent, who works actively with employers, agencies and job seekers to assist with meeting talent needs, and providing access to an extensive range of tools and resources over and above those listed.
