JOBS ....


Smash'em together and whaddya got?


JOBBORTUNITIES is a programme being undertaken by Clutha District Council with partnership funding from Mayors Taskforce for Jobs and MSD.

JOBBORTUNITIES is Clutha’s Mayors Taskforce For Jobs Rural Community Resilience Programme aimed to provide assistance to those looking for employment and overcoming challenges towards finding and retaining employment.

JOBBORTUNITIES aims to provide assistance to small to medium sized enterprises to support with recruitment, training and wage subsidy support.

Pastoral care

Integral to the JOBBORTUNITIES programme is the ongoing pastoral support from the initial transition into employment through to as the person settles into their role, increased or decreased as required. Pastoral support is walking alongside our JOBBORTUNITIES person to support them into the right employment by improving their motivation, ensuring they are work ready and reducing their barriers.  All this enables a positive experience for all involved.
