TheCareerofChoice.com – Launch!
With jobs from entry level to CEO the exciting reality of one of the world’s largest industries is often underrated.
As New Zealand’s third largest employer, retail has an endless number of career opportunities available and Retailworld are at the forefront of promoting what’s on offer to attract and retain talent.
The latest tool set to showcase the scope of career pathways is an informative and inspiring website TheCareerofChoice.com. Created with backing from AUT and ServiceIQ, the site profiles people working in retail to demonstrate the vast range and depth of positions in the shop front and support office.
Retailworld Marketing Manager Jane Bennett says, “it’s great to see so much passion in the industry as we work together to highlight pathways and prospects in our fast-paced and aspirational sector. By sharing personal career stories it makes the opportunities relatable and tangible; feedback from the market has been overwhelmingly positive.”
The website was launched in Auckland last night where retailers, industry partners, training organisations, universities and career advocates celebrated the initiative and the positive impact that the website will have in changing perceptions.
Starting with over 100 profiles, TheCareerofChoice.com is a dynamic platform that will continue to grow as new submissions are added.
Retailers are encouraged to nominate their team members to feature and share their stories.
