*Make a real difference in the lives of youth *
In our communities, not all young people are in employment, education, or training. This programme is all about changing that! As a Navigator, you'll have the opportunity to contribute positively in your local community by providing mentoring, support, and pathways to employment.
So, what does a Navigator do?
You'll screen, interview and select, a cohort of youth from the candidate list provided. You then lead them through 3 weeks of full-time unpaid work experience with a large and well-known employer.
We'll put you through the 4098 Assessor Unit Standard (for free) so you can teach, coach, and assess the participants as they move through the programme.
Now that the young people have three weeks of work experience demonstrating reliability, and employability, it's your time to shine!
Use your networks and confidence to engage with businesses who may be interested in employing a young person. The success of the programme relies on creating positive, and ongoing, employment outcomes.
Then we start again, creating the next cohort.
Your work hours
These will be variable, so this role requires a good dose of flexibility. These will range from 16hrs per week, up to 40hrs per week, depending on the stage in the programme. A full schedule will be provided to candidates once we reach the interview stage.
What we're looking for
We're looking for experience in youth development, Maori and Pasifika engagement, education, or community support. Add to that some great facilitation skills, a clean driver's licence and MOJ record, and community networks.
Helping transition the young people of Aotearoa into employment is hugely rewarding. Why not apply with your CV and cover letter, telling us a bit about why you would be a great Navigator! https://careers.skills.org.nz.
Applications close January 7th, 2019, with shortlisting and interviewing taking place mid-late January.
