Ways you could become our employer partner:
Release to Work (RTW) opportunities
Employ a Release to Work jobseeker who is nearing release and help them develop the habits necessary for stable employment while they are on temporarily release during the day. Our jobseekers add value to your business by utilising the skills and qualifications they have gained whilst serving their sentence.
Apprenticeships upon release
Many of our jobseekers who are nearing release have either fully or partially completed their NZQA qualifications so the next step is to secure an apprenticeship, and this is where your company or industry can step in. Our jobseekers are prepped and ready to go!
Employment opportunities on release
We provide a free end-to-end recruitment service. The jobseekers skills and qualifications are matched with available jobs in the community. Our staff are available around New Zealand to assist with your employment needs.
Employers and training organisations come along to spend time educating and interviewing jobseekers. There are a range of presentations and interactive stalls where jobseekers can learn more about what options are available to them. Be part of our next employment expo by contacting us.
