Job Ready Programme

Job Ready Programme

The Job Ready Programme is for international students in Canterbury who are wanting to find employment in New Zealand after graduation.

The first part of the programme is a series of workshops which train students in job seeking skills and Kiwi work culture. After the workshops, selected students may be matched with businesses that have projects requiring an international perspective.

The programme offers training and mentorship after placement for both the businesses and international interns involved, to ensure mutually beneficial outcomes are achieved.
