Supporting young Aucklanders to find work and discover career pathways is crucial for our region’s COVID-19 recovery and the long-term prosperity of Auckland’s people, businesses, communities and economy.

Why employ young people?

With a growing youth population, hiring, training and developing young people helps future-proof your business and your industry. With 14.1 per cent* of young Aucklanders (15-25 years) not in employment, education or training, we also have a role as employers to help create career opportunities and brighter futures for our rangatahi. The need is great and the time is now.
