Lincoln Agritech has been working with ChristchurchNZ by participating in the Job Ready Programme. This programme is aimed at international graduates in Canterbury who are wanting to find employment in New Zealand.
The first part of the programme is a series of workshops designed to train students in job seeking skills and teach them about Kiwi work culture. After the workshop series, students are matched with businesses that have projects requiring an international perspective.
Zheng (James) Wang, Lincoln Agritech’s China Business Development Manager, originally came to Lincoln Agritech as part of the ChristchurchNZ Job Ready Programme. Zheng is now a full time employee in the Business Development Team.
The Job Ready Programme is supported by ChristchurchNZ, University of Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury.
