Tourism in the Pacific Islands has been crippled by COVID-19 and has been one of the hardest hit sectors worldwide, and the most aggravating concern for most PICs is the rising unemployment from an upsurge in job losses and/or reduced working hours.
In light of these negative impacts to the industry, the Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO) in partnership with the New Zealand Foreign Affairs and Trade (NZMFAT) is seeking reputable website developers to create a Pacific tourism employment portal. This website will serve as a bridge to connect the unemployed tourism related workers with job opportunities nationally as well as regionally.

  • Domain name registration and a minimum of 2 years web hosting arrangement
  • Central administration access of all features

  • Staff training on CMS, including all back-end operations.
  • Provide a website archiving strategy and full documentation of the website, including site-map, training manual, source code, and all login details.

  • Be a reputable firm with at least 7 years of prior experience designing visually appealing and navigation friendly web sites;
