The roadshow is for forestry employers

The Forestry Workforce Roadshow is being held in November and December 2020. For the first time, roadshow events will be held online as well as regionally.

The roadshow is travelling to four areas – three in the North Island and one in the South Island.

Boost your recruitment efforts

If you’re a forestry contractor or employer of seasonal forestry workers, the roadshow will help you with your recruitment for 2021.
