Are you an experienced business development professional who wants to use their Wairarapa business relationships for the good of the community and to make a difference in someone’s life?

Youth2Work Wairarapa (Y2WW) is looking for you.

Youth2Work Wairarapa (Y2WW) works collaboratively with rangatahi (young people), employers, whānau and educators to ensure all young people aged 16-24 years in the Wairarapa have the opportunity to have successful pathways into education, training or employment.

Youth2Work is funded by the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs initiative through our local Wairarapa councils and we have secured ongoing funding to provide this service.

Ongoing growth has meant we need a team member who can use their existing business relationships and has a desire to grow new relationships to help us unearth employment opportunities for our youth, and support the businesses.

This role requires someone results driven who thrives on “closing the deal” but wants their work to be meaningful.

You’ll be comfortable with meeting a variety of businesses in person and on the phone, and you’ll be the ‘go-to’ person for getting young people into work across the Wairarapa. 

When you join the Youth2Work Wairarapa team you’ll get a competitive salary, company mobile and laptop, ongoing training and flexible working arrangements. 

If making a difference to Wairarapa youth is your passion then we would love for you to apply for our Youth2Work Wairarapa Business Connector role.

This role is for 32 hours a week.
