About/Criteria

Youth Employment Success is working towards a Dunedin that actively engages and supports all young people. A community that owns the youth unemployment issue and works collaboratively to solve it. We’re looking for Dunedin employers who can offer employment and training opportunities for young workers and students. We're raising awareness and creating conversations about Youth Employment; Building employer knowledge and confidence in employing young people; Generating positive employment-based opportunities and jobs for Dunedin youth; Recognising, endorsing and celebrating existing Dunedin Youth Friendly Employers.

What makes an Employer Youth Friendly?

  • Has a history of or currently employing at least one young person (24 years or younger).
  • Provides mentorship and constructive support systems to young people.
  • Offers opportunities for youth to become more “employable” (i.e. business walkthrough and skills reviews).
