Partner with us to hire staff
We can help you identify skills you need from new staff, support people into meaningful work, and tailor programmes to upskill people.
Our Industry Partnerships team works with large businesses, training providers, industries, central and local government, and Māori and Pacific businesses.
Our aim is to:

What we do
We can help you hire the right people for your business and create quality employment outcomes. Quality employment outcomes will:
- open roles up to a more diverse range of employees
- increase the capability and capacity of New Zealand's workforce
- help employees feel their work has value, meaning and purpose.
Quality employment outcomes are one of the Broader Outcomes that the government must deliver through some procurement processes. That means that suppliers to government should be considering how they can deliver quality employment outcomes. You can find out more about these rules on the Government Procurement website:
