For Job Seekers

We support job seekers in finding, getting and keeping work, remaining healthy to fully participate, and continue to develop in their chosen career. The service also works with employers, to ensure both parties are supported to ensure successful, ongoing employment.

The service is free for adults aged 17 and over:

  • Whose ability to participate in employment has been affected by the experience of mental ill- health or ACC injury.
  • Who want to get a job, or require support to retain their current job.
  • Who are residents of Waitakere City.
