New Labour Market Manager For Manawatu

December 20 2008 - Hilary Humphrey has been appointed Regional Labour Market Project Leader to address workforce issues and skilled labour shortages faced by Manawatu organisations.

Operating from Vision Manawatu, her role will be pivotal and crucial for the region's future according to Chief Executive Andrew Powrie. He believes that the new management role will be crucial in bringing together employers facing challenges, ensuring that the job market works effectively in Manawatu. Andrew Powrie said:

"Currently there is no cohesive regional strategy, and elements of work in this area are happening in a disconnected manner.

"Now specific goals in key areas can be formulated and managed through projects - based on comprehensive research.

"Hilary Humphrey's appointment to lead this strategic project was a clear and unanimous choice by the interview panel. Her previous work as Manawatu Defence Hub facilitator has been valuable in her gaining a broad and in-depth understanding of the region-wide concerns through her professional networks," he added.

The post will be funded from the Ministry of Social Development's Enterprising Communities Programme.
