Primary ITO: Knowledge to grow

News & Features

SpeedMeet event 2021

25 June 2021


Looking for new talent for your business? 

Primary ITO is looking for employers to take part in the 2021 Got a Trade? Got it Made! SpeedMeet events in August and September in over 12 locations across New Zealand.  


SpeedMeet brings together employers and students from a variety of industries, 'speed-dating style'. Every six minutes employers meet a secondary school student for a mini-interview. If both employer and student note they are interested, a match is made, and contact details are shared via email. 


We’re inviting employers to participate if they’re looking for fresh new staff within the next six months, or if they want to open the eyes of young people to the career options that are available to them. 


If you’re looking for new staff, this is an opportunity to meet talented and motivated school leavers who are ready to start a new career! 


Get involved. Register in your location(s) to find your perfect match! Register now!
