How to get involved if you’re an employer

Regardless of industry or business size, there are plenty of reasons to consider hiring a young Kāpiti person who is work ready: 

  • An affordable option.

  • Highly trainable.

  • Fresh ideas and new ways of thinking.

  • Expertise and skills for example in new media and digital technology.

This initiative has the opportunity to benefit Kāpiti socially and economically, while having a wider conversation about what skills employers need, and ensuring our 15-24 year olds have those skills to be a hireable resource. 

If you are a Kāpiti based business, there are multiple ways you can get involved:

  • Offer a work experience placement through our work experience programme - WEX.

  • Become an interviewer at one of our #EmployerMeets.

  • Assess students completing the Kāpiti Work Ready Passport at their final interview.

  • Become a Sponsor - either as a Programme Sponsor or of one of our events such as the annual Awards or an #EmployerMeet.
