I need some folk with indesign skills to do contract work from time to time.

Any suggestions on where the best place is to look for such resources?

You could try some of the professional freelancing websites. Find someone within your price range with a good raiting and give them a test project to see how they go. If it works out, continue to use them.

Alternatively you could try contacting some of the tertiary institutions with design programs, such as Massey University (etc) and advertise what you need. Get a 3rd or 4th year student who will have ample amount of skill and wont break the bank. Gives students a chance to expand their professional portfolio and also keeps the money here.

Yeah, what do you want done? You could definitely give the local design college/uni a call and see if they have some students who might be able to help, they're usually the best option. It's not all that hard to learn though if the job is simple enough. I've done a fair bit for my office purely because I have played around with it more than everyone else so know its limitations and abilities.

It's not that hard to pick up compared with some of the other Creative Suite apps to be honest. I'd just look for online resources or grab yourself the classic InDesign for Dummies off Amazon or eBay

It's fairly intuitive to pick up.
But there's a lot more to graphic design than just knowing how to operate software.

Hi folks,

Thanks for all those who responded. 

I got a few people expressing interest in helping out but haven't got sorted out to respond, so I thought I'd just quickly acknowledge your offers and let you know I'll get back shortly.
