MOXIE Work Experience Placements
 

As mentioned in the MOXIE introduction, we are
working with employers to create a shared vision of
success for young people. This is done through a step-by-step training process, with hands on support from Recreate NZ.

The intention is that the trainee will gain paid employment at the end of unpaid training period. We have seen great success in the past few years and we are very keen to
keep growing this exciting and dynamic employment stream.


Please note: we cannot guarantee immediate work placements. MOXIE training is arranged with employers as opportunities arise. Placements are then matched with appropriate trainees based on interests, skill, location, and shift times.

We will do our best to find work for all who are interested, but suggest you continue your own investigations too.

If you have completed other Recreate programmes and believe you’re ready for paid employment, please express your interest to christchurch@recreate.org.nz.
