Could you use some extra help?

Work Ready Kāpiti are launching an exciting new programme that will offer local businesses
some extra support in the form of youth work experience placements.
With a focus on helping Kāpiti youth transition into work and encouraging local employers to be
ready to employ them , Work Ready Kāpiti’s (WRK) new work experience programme – WEX ticks all
the boxes.
The programme will run during school holidays and will require a minimum commitment of 3 days
over a 2 week period, allowing participants to develop a more solid skill base in a quicker period and
for the employer to benefit from this.
All the work has been taken out of it for local employers, with WRK managing the placements and
creating an Employer Pack to assist with onboarding the participant .
Local colleges have also shown great enthusiasm and support of the initiative, offering to vet and
match applicants to the placements based on their skills and interests.
So, if you are a Kāpiti based business who could use some extra support and would be interested in
offering a placement to a local youth, we would love to hear from you.
Please email – [email protected] or visit our website – for
further information.
