First of its kind Entrepreneurs Boot Camp for migrants
Migrant Careers Support Trust fills the gap with a bootcamp for aspiring migrant entrepreneurs

With a purpose of helping migrants settle into mainstream careers in New Zealand, Migrant Careers recently conducted a first of its kind, Entrepreneurs Boot Camp at the ANZ premises in Sylvia Park. 
 
Attended by over 30 participants belonging to various ethnicities, the boot camp was aimed at new or settled migrants who wanted to set up their own business and were unsure of where to start. It was also aimed at new entrepreneurs and solopreneurs who wanted a refresher in navigating the ins and outs of running a new business.

Easier applications for parental leave
Applying for parental leave payments is now easier than ever. Applications can now be completed online and for most parents, the tax records Inland Revenue holds will automatically determine eligibility. This means there is no longer the need for workers and employers to calculate and verify earnings in order to determine eligibility and payments.
