Pre-employment Support. Jobconnect assists people to explore their vocational interests and provides opportunities for personal development through individual and group work. The pre-employment service enables people to fully explore the idea of working and sets them on their way, either independently or accompanied, to seek work, education or other meaningful occupations.
Support will also be offered to select and enrol in education that is in line with the person’s employment goals or to help clarify their direction. Ongoing support will be provided by peer support groups, study groups, and individual support.
Supported Employment provides a full employment search and support service to both job seekers and employers. For those unsure about career or work choice, information and advice is part of the service, as well as assisting people select suitable training options if they wish to update their skills as part of their employment seeking journey.
Our Employment Consultants work one-to-one with people throughout Christchurch and Canterbury to provide a supported employment service. When people gain employment, Jobconnect provides ongoing support to the worker and the employer for as long as required.
In times of unwellness, the service will support people to continue working, or negotiate with employers/educators for appropriate time off.
Peer Support at Jobconnect provides support for people contemplating a vocational journey as part of their mental health recovery. This could include work, study, and volunteering or community involvement.
