LookSee campaign attracts global tech talent to the region
The Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency, with support from the Kāpiti Coast District Council and the Kāpiti Coast Chamber of Commerce, is hosting an event for businesses that need help attracting tech talent.
The “LookSee Wellington next steps event” provides opportunities for business to hear from representatives from the Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency (WREDA) and WorkHere, the organisations responsible for the recent LookSee Wellington campaign, about how to access their database of qualified tech candidates who are keen to move to the region.
Kāpiti Coast District Council Programme Design and Delivery Manager Tania Parata says with an increasing number of businesses choosing to call Kāpiti home attracting and retaining tech talent is key to supporting business growth.
LookSee Wellington week happened in May. It involved bringing global tech talent to Wellington to understand what it is like to live and move to the region. Candidates were also given the opportunity to meet with some of the 52 employers who had signed up to LookSee at that time.
Businesses who are interested in hearing more about how LookSee can help them attract global tech talent are encouraged to attend the free Kāpiti event on Friday 25 August between 12pm and 1pm at the Kāpiti Community Centre, 15 Ngahina Street Paraparaumu.
