Youth Employment Success Update

Rosaleen Ward

An incredible year so far - with so much more yet to come!

What an incredible year for Youth Employment Success so far! We are thrilled to announce that YES is set to continue in 2018.

We now have 68 fantastic Dunedin businesses on board that are offering over 700 opportunities to Dunedin youth to gain valuable insight into their industries. The incredible teams at Delta, DKW Recruitment, Crowe Horwath and T&G are the latest local businesses to become endorsed and get behind supporting young job seekers in Dunedin. It is such a privilege to meet with Youth-friendly employers, and their young staff, to share in their passion for youth employment and hear about their own experiences entering the workforce.

We have some really exciting projects in the pipeline for the next 12 months of Youth Employment Success. These include significant opportunities for Dunedin Youth with major businesses and organisations including McDonald's, Crowe Horwath and NZ Police. We look forward to more positive conversations with both employers and young job seekers around Youth employment in Dunedin.

Keep an eye on Youth Employment Success on both Facebook, and Instagram for the latest on Youth employment opportunities and success stories in Dunedin.
