Carewise Work + Learn

Explore new employment horizons!

In 2023 Carers NZ launched a new pilot in its CareWise carer friendly workplace programme, Work + Learn. Since then, we have been working with family carers who want to migrate from a benefit to paid employment for a carer friendly employer. We work 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. Some of the reasons you might want to join Work + Learn are to build a stronger future, gain experience and skills, save for retirement, or reduce the social isolation you may be experiencing.
