Student Job Search moves online

1:44 pm on 3 August 2011

Student Job Search offices will close next month, leaving a call centre operating in Wellington, as the university student service moves online.

The six regional offices - at Auckland, Waikato, Canterbury, Otago, and Victoria Universities and at the Massey University campus at Palmerston North - will close on 30 September.

Student Job Search chief executive Paul Kennedy says the redundancies are minimal and the creation of on-campus sales jobs will continue to grow the organisation.

The New Zealand Union of Students' Associations says it supports the decision, as students mostly use online services.
