Summertime inspiration about EBOP jobs
“Great opportunities right here” is a clear message from Eastern Bay Millenials and Gen Z ‘stars’ who have featured in a series of video clips by Toi EDA.
The videos feature eleven young people who are working across a wide range of local jobs and enterprises.
Toi EDA, the Eastern Bay’s economic development agency, put the project together.
“Earlier in the year, our annual LinkUP survey with senior school students clearly indicated their preferred ways of learning about careers and jobs,” says Toi EDA’s Workforce Development manager, Barbara MacLennan.
“The standout is through visits and experiences, and we’re helping innovate more of those with schools and industry. But the clear second choice for well over half the students was online, so we’ve started building content through these stories
“Our video-making team had a great response from businesses and young entrepreneurs across the board.
“They’re all passionate about Eastern Bay of Plenty communities, and keen to attract local rangatahi and young people into their industries.
“Next year, along with Trish Collett who’s our Toi EDA LinkUp Co-ordinator, we’ll be planning more on-line content and “hands on” programmes with schools.”
