New Zealand will invest $500m to launch a Job Search Solutions program for the workforce in its capital, Auckland, and in Wellington, the Australian Financial Press has learnt.
The program, called JobSearch, aims to bring new Australians into the labour market by allowing them to apply for jobs online and by answering questions about their experience and skills, including their qualifications and qualifications history.
It will be rolled out in Auckland in early 2017 and Wellington in the second half of 2017.
It is the first time New Zealand has launched such a program in New Zealand.
JobSearch was originally designed to provide workers with information about their job search opportunities and to help employers identify people suitable for the positions they have advertised.
It aims to increase the number of people applying for jobs in the country, but it is not the first effort to attract the workforce.
In February 2017, the New Zealand government launched a JobSearch program to encourage unemployed New Zealanders to apply.
The program includes information on the job, its location, qualifications and experience.
The country is also looking to attract skilled workers through an apprenticeship program and the New Work scheme.
Job Search was designed to help people who were not yet ready for work find jobs and find out how to apply online.
New Zealand is also trying to get people out of the workforce through the National Employment Guarantee scheme.
The New Zealand Bureau of Statistics estimated last year that the number on the NGES was at 11.3 million people.
Auckland was selected as the site of the JobSearch pilot project after New Zealand was selected to receive more than $2.5 billion in federal funding for infrastructure projects.
