Mayors Taskforce For Jobs - Workforce Programme

Add to favourites

In collaboration with the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) and Ministry of Social Development (MSD), Stratford District Council aims to help 50 young people into sustainable work by June 2021.

This programme is about creating positive outcomes that benefit the wellbeing of our whole district.

Young people will be provided with opportunities to engage with the workforce, whilst employers will be provided with assistance during these tougher financial times.

Through this initiative Council is able to assist local businesses with recruitment, training, guidance and in some cases subsidies, to help small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) take on young workers. It has a specific focus on getting young people who are not in employment, education or training into sustainable employment.

The programme was developed by MTFJ and MSD as a response to the impact of Covid-19. Young workers across Aotearoa/New Zealand, and particularly in rural areas, have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic.

How does it work?

Whether you’re an employer or seeking employment, register for the programme online via the below links:

Employer Registration 

Seeking Employment Registration

Our Workforce Coordinator will assess all registrations, and connect employers with those seeking employment, or identify training needs and requirements for available roles.

Once a successful connection is made, employers will be asked to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Council. Our Workforce Coordinator will then schedule regular check-ins with both employer and employee, offering support where needed.
