The Kaikōura District Council are committed to creating opportunities for sustainabe employment for 50 people who are not in employment, education, or training (NEETS) and/or have been displaced from their employment under COVID-19 through the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) Community Recovery Programme. This programme is led by our Mayor, Craig Mackle, and is delivered in collaboration with Te Hā o Mātauranga.

Sustainable employment outcomes are the target through the Community Recovery ProgrammeAll employment outcomes will be monitored, including casual, part-time, or permanent.

This initiative is to provide Council with funding for:

  1. Funding assistance directly for small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to support with recruitment, training, wage subsidy support for at risk youth or initiatives that will enable employment (supporting SMEs with transport costs, for example, including transport suitable for physical distancing).
  2. Finding sustainable employment for Youth (aged 16 - 24) and those whose employment has been affected by COVID-19.
  3. In Kaikōura we have employed a Local Coordinator; Sean Madden, Youth Employability Facilitator; Rosie Poharama-Hepi and a Driving Coordinator; Renee Wood.
  4. Outward Bound has partnered with MTFJ to provide Outward Bound scholarships valued at $3,600 for selected New Zealand youth connected to MTFJ. Click here for more information.
