Hub to help employers hire workers for rebuild

3:40 pm on 9 October 2012

The Government is employing four people in Christchurch to help employers involved in the earthquake-hit city's rebuild to hire staff.

The Canterbury Skills and Employment Hub will match up the unemployed with vacant jobs and where necessary help them to enrol in pre-employment courses to increase their skills.

Help will also be offered to those wanting to employ foreign workers, along with a website where job vacancies can be listed.
