About the Event

The geothermal industry is growing both here in New Zealand and globally.

Attracting, developing and retaining suitably qualified and experienced staff is ever important – and increasingly challenging – in the face of a growing industry and increased demand for workers from many similar industries, both here in New Zealand and overseas.

This hui / workshop invites geothermal industry companies to bring their experiences, needs and ideas to the table, with a view to identify areas where the industry could collaborate to attract staff and develop talent.

The event is for senior managers and HR talent / recruitment managers from companies active in the New Zealand geothermal industry. Please register your interest in attending this event.

if you are interested in attending, please contact Fiona Miller
