Carewise Work + Learn

Is 2023 the year you will explore new employment horizons?

Carers NZ is launching a new pilot in its CareWise carer friendly workplace programme. We’ll be working with 20 family carers who want to migrate from a benefit to paid employment – to build a stronger future, gain experience and skills, save for retirement, and reduce the social isolation they may be experiencing.

Carers NZ works with 150+ carer friendly employers nationwide, in a range of industries. Our Work + Learn programme provides one to one support, from exploring work options and dreams, to creating a great CV, building confidence, introductions to carer friendly employers, and helping to overcome barriers in your work/life/care journey.

Carers already do an important unpaid job in the support they provide to someone in their whānau. This programme is for those who want to find employment and would like to connect with carer friendly employers, and receive ongoing support.
