More than 50 exhibitors are expected to take over Durham Street to showcase career and job opportunities.

The Canvas Careers Expo is being held in the Taurnaga CBD today and tomorrow.

Organised by Tauranga Rotary and Priority One, the Canvas Careers Expo has moved to Durham Street this year to acknowledge the education hub in the city centre. 

Organiser Sue Boyne is expecting an exciting two days.

“With the University of Waikato city centre campus on Durham Street it seems a fitting place to stage the expo and allows us to create a highly dynamic, visual and interactive expo on the street and inside some of the organisations on the street.”

The expo runs from 10am – 2pm both days, with local and national tertiary training providers on site.

“Canvas Careers Expo is a unique opportunity for students and those considering a career change or looking for a job to come and see a diverse range of career pathways and talk directly to training providers."

There will be Universities from across NZ joining the expo alongside the Pacific International Hotel Management School, Tertiary Institutes, Employ NZ, Beca, NZ Defence Force, Education USA and many, many more.”

n the Saturday morning, the Young Enterprise Scheme Market day takes place on the street so the public can see some of the awesome businesses that have been created under YES Tauranga, browse a selection of products and walk away with some locally made creations. 

University of Waikato scientists will be dissecting a Thresher shark at 12noon in the lane beside the University and the public can view a rare Taningia fimbria, one of the largest squid species in the world that was recently caught off Whakaari/White Island.

“We’ve also got the NZ Defence Force here with some of their heavy vehicles and Freight Logistics with a few trucks.  There will truly be something for everyone,” says Sue.
