NZMA Careers has just secured an exciting new partnership with Ice Events, one of New Zealand’s leading event and casual employment companies.
Ice Events recruit hospitality and cookery staff for a vast range of high profile functions around the country - from door staff at Vector Arena to catering staff at New Zealand’s renown Agricultural Fieldays. They are the go-to company for many of New Zealand’s most talked about occasions.
Thanks to the new partnership, NZMA will now be their first port of call when they are looking for casual staff. NZMA Careers Manager Gareth Brown believes this will bring big benefits to NZMA’s hospitality and cookery students.
“It’s the perfect opportunity for students to gain some work experience for their CVs, build on their skills and boost their income, all at the same time,” said Gareth.
“It’s hard to juggle study, family commitments and work, so casual employment is often ideal, as students can pick and choose which jobs they take on, depending on their current work load.
“It’s great to be working with an organisation like Ice Events that is so focussed on the success of our graduates. By partnering with them we are opening up more opportunities for our students to gain valuable experience, which in turn, will help them become successful in their careers after they graduate. As well as providing casual employment, we anticipate that the new partnership will also lead to opportunities for sustainable, long-term employment.”
