CareerFest Southland, or Southland Careers Expo as it was formerly known, is an initiative driven by Southland Secondary Schools Principals’ Association (SSSPA) under the guidance of Aurora College principal Robyn Hickman, who looks after career education for the SSSPA.

The SSSPA ensures all schools have the opportunity to tap into the resources offered through CareerFest Southland and contracts out the facilitation and delivery of all CareerFest Southland events to Southern Directionz Ltd.

Locally-owned and operated, Southern Directionz is the Southern region’s leading career service provider, specialising in career assessment, development and planning.

Southern Directionz provides an extensive range of comprehensive vocational assessment processes that identify the particular career development or up skilling needs of the client.

The expertise of the Southern Directionz’ team of fully-qualified and specialist consultants positions them ideally to coordinate CareerFest Southland events.
