The Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Jone Usamate received a courtesy visit from Tradestaff Limited, a labour hire company from New Zealand this week.

Mr Usamate highlighted that the employer had already recruited seven Fijian carpenters for the Canterbury Rebuild Pilot Project in Christchurch, New Zealand last year.

“The employer representatives, Mr Andy McCormick, Ms Sally McFarlane and Mr Richard Cronin are currently in Fiji to meet with the officials from the National Employment Centre, to visit returning pilot Fijian carpentry workers and also to meet and interview potential workers under the PAC quota scheme,” Mr Usamate said.

The employer is targeting candidates with trade qualification for employment opportunities in New Zealand. Mr Usamate appreciated the opportunity to meet the employer representatives, and thanked them for the ongoing efforts in providing employment opportunities for potential Fijian workers.
