Free and downloadable, the toolkit is made up of video, infographics, images and key messages to aid the attraction of talent and students, both domestically and internationally.

The toolkit has come about as a result of Canterbury businesses being heavily impacted by the skills shortage affecting their ability to meet consumer demands and to take advantage of growth opportunities.

The toolkit promotes the great lifestyle and career balance in New Zealand’s second largest city – including affordable housing, access to the outdoors, diversity of culture and community, comparatively short commute time and a vibrant, newly built central city.

It also promotes the city as a study destination showcasing the city and region as a fun and vibrant place to study. Continuing to attract students provides an important pipeline of talent to support our future economy.

ChristchurchNZ GM of Innovation and Business Growth, Martin Cudd said recruiters and employers expressed the need for fresh, welcoming and professionally made digital assets.
