New jobs as MSD set sights on new centre in Hastings

Event Details

The Ministry of Social Development is to take over the former central Hastings ANZ bank site for a new “hub” focusing on job opportunities in the Covid-19 crisis.

The establishment of the new operation on the corner of Karamu Rd and Heretaunga St will deliver telephone support and processing with a strong recruitment focus, supporting more New Zealanders into employment, said MSD East Coast region commissioner Annie Aranui.

She said 50 full-time MSD staff will work from the site from July 1, with possible expansion over the next 12-18 months. The jobs are listed on govt jobs, MSD Careers and SEEK web-sites and applications close on Monday.

The new Hastings team will play a critical role in helping Hawke’s Bay job-seekers connect to the labour market and support local businesses with their recruitment needs in the wake of the lockdown.
