    In The Community

    Joint youth employment initiative

    We have implementing a joint youth employment initiative with Rotorua Work and Income (WINZ). The initiative involves the employment, training and mentoring of unemployed youth (≤ 25 years old) from rural areas in the Bay of Plenty, who are being utilised on current projects in the area. WINZ and Connect 8 have selected suitable candidates based on a number of criteria, including:
    – Values
    – Willingness to learn and travel
    – Achievements at WINZ “boot camps”
    – Attendance at Connect 8/WINZ orientation events

    Successful candidates have entered a training apprenticeship, which is being managed by Connect 8’s Construction Superintendents and HSE Manager, with support from the Infrastructure Industry

    Training Organisation Connexis. The estimated timeframe for upskilling an inexperienced labourer to machine operator is between 12 and 18 months. Connect 8 will be taking on 8-10 candidates in the first year, with a plan to review and expand the programme in future years.
