Careers Pathway

The Leading Employers Group, was established by the Rotorua Business Chamber with over 100 local businesses as part of the group. It serves as the cornerstone of our efforts to address employment challenges and create opportunities for rangatahi and job seekers. This collaborative initiative was born out of a desire to listen to the experiences and needs of leading employers, with a focus on increasing employment opportunities within our community.

In response to the insights gathered from the Leading Employers Group, the Rotorua Business Chamber, along with our partners Toi Ohomai, Rotorua Lakes Council, Taiohi Turama, Putaki Nui, and the Ministry of Social Development developed the Career Pathways program. These sector specific events are designed to bridge the gap between job seekers and leading employers in Rotorua, providing invaluable networking opportunities and insights into various industries.

Each Career Pathways' event focuses on specific sectors crucial to our community's economic growth, ranging from technology and healthcare to tourism and beyond. Through curated exhibitors and interactive sessions, attendees have the chance to explore different career pathways and connect with employers actively seeking talent.

At the heart of our initiative is a commitment to empowering individuals to pursue their passions and unlock their full potential. Together with our partners and the Leading Employers Group, we're dedicated to building a brighter future for Rotorua by creating pathways to success for all members of our community.
