This event has been cancelled.


At this NZAGE event, Clare Montgomerie, Senior Manager PwC New Zealand, will talk about some changes that have been introduced and implemented by the New Zealand government to help employers access and retain global skills and knowledge. Find out why (and how) New Zealanders and non-New Zealanders studying in New Zealand universities are now competing on a level-playing field for graduate job opportunities.

We’ll also be updating you on the NZAGE Summit to be held in October, this year with a focus on Diversity. This is also a great chance to network with other HR/Recruitment professionals in the Christchurch area.
