Signal My Soft Skills and Employability: A Digital Resource for Job Seekers
Soft skills are one of the hardest aspects of employability to signal to employers - especially if your work experience or personal work networks are limited. Most employers want soft skills, but few agree on how to define or measure them. EMPLE will be gathering feedback from envisaged user groups (job seekers, youth, vulnerable worker groups) to validate tool demand and requirements as well as potential tool partners. Output will be a high quality report and recommendations.

Our investments disease surveillance 2017
Disease Surveillance - Can transaction data shape government policy?
Professor Shaun Hendy, Director of Te Pūnaha Matatini (a Centre of Research Excellence hosted by the University of Auckland), and his team, had a unique opportunity to investigate historical and anonymised bank transaction data to see if they could identify spending patterns in a community following a disease outbreak. If they could find patterns, they could be turned into a model that could be used by Government policy advisors – giving them new insights into how communities respond to large scale events.
