Waikato on show in London

Waikato IT recruitment firm Burton and Associates are heading to the UK to exhibit at London’s Down Under Live Expo.

Held in London on 2-3 March, Down Under Live Expo is the UK’s biggest emigration
event for Brits looking to move to Australia and New Zealand. Phil Burton,
Managing Director of Burton and Associates, will be there representing several
Waikato tech firms and holding pre-scheduled appointments with potential
candidates to take them through the types of opportunities that are available
in the region. Following the expo the shortlisted candidates will be invited to
come to New Zealand to meet with local firms and explore some of the region.

“The calibre of candidates is likely to be strong – New Zealand is well known for innovation
and the Waikato is the fastest growing tech sector in the country. Coupled with
our lifestyle offering, it is a compelling proposition for those looking at
opportunities outside the UK," says Burton.

“We have great talent here in the Waikato region but there is still demand in some areas for specific expertise. This is an opportunity to add to our collective knowledge
by attracting new talent to the region”.
