A pop-up job shop opens in Dunedin on Monday morning, with job listings for vacancies across Otago on display until Saturday. 

Ministry for Social Development Regional Commissioner Jason Tibble says it's a good chance for job seekers to get on the road to employment.

"If there are any job seekers out there who aren't quite sure what their next step might look like, it's a really relaxed environment and a great opportunity to ask questions and build connections with other people in our community," he said.

Mr Tibble says the bringing together of job seekers and employers means there will be plenty of opportunities.

"There is certainly a lot on offer down here, so it's really about shining a spotlight on that and allowing those conversations to take place."

As well as employers, the pop-up job shop will also have recruitment agencies and career professionals. Seminars will be held at various points across the six days.

The pop-up shop is on George St in central Dunedin.
