Maori and Pasifika job listing website reports good business

7:45 pm on 8 December 2011

An internet job listing site - launched in response to a growing number of Maori and Pacifica people entering the workforce - is reporting that business is good.

MaoriPacificJobs.co.nz was set up just under two years ago when the company realised there was a growth in the number of Maori and Pacific people entering the workforce - partly because many more were graduating from study.

It posts a variety of full and part-time job vacancies in areas such as healthcare, education and Government.

Maori Pacific Jobs general manager Donna Kerrison says it noticed there was a gap in the market for the site.

She says the service is a Maori and Pasifika version of Trade Me Jobs.
