Council participates in Work Ready Kāpiti Youth & Employer Mixer evening
Kāpiti youth will be encouraged to explore opportunities to work for the Kāpiti Coast District Council at next week’s Work Ready Youth & Employer Mixer Evening.
Work Ready Kāpiti, a joint initiative between the Kāpiti Coast Chamber of Commerce, the Kāpiti Coast District Council and the Youth Employment Strategy Group, aims to help 16-25 year olds to gain the skills required to secure local employment.
The Youth & Employer Mixer Evening aims to provide opportunities for employers and young people to meet each and discover what type of jobs are available on the Coast and talk about the skills needed. More than 30 businesses are participating in the event.
Organisational Development Manager Dianne Andrew says the Council welcomes the opportunity to participate in the Youth & Employer Mixer Evening.
“Our cadet programme offers an opportunity for local school and college leavers and graduates that want to experience all that the Council has to offer and we’re keen to meet young people who have a real interest in making a positive contribution to the Kāpiti Coast community.”
Youth and employers who are interested in registering for Work Ready’s Youth & Employer Mixer Evening on Tuesday 22 August are encouraged to visit workreadykapiti.com.
