Progress in out pilot programme in association with the Ministry of Social Development is going well.
To 13/11/18, we have placed 14 MSD clients into employment with our members. Given the contract commenced 1st October, this is a very pleasing result and one which has exceeded MSD’s expectations and targets.
There are a number of member benefits when you employ an MSD client through our programme. These are:
- The NZSA will complete and pay for the candidates COA application (Temporary Licence). We will do this once the candidate has been offered employment. (That saves your organisation $187)
- Pay the member $495 + GST per week for the first six weeks of employment (Pro Rata). This covers all training and induction costs. (That’s $2,970 worth of support that you could receive from the NZSA)
- Pay the member $500 + GST once the candidate has completed 3 months and another $500+GST once the candidate has completed 6 months employment. (That’s a further $1,000 upon their continued service.
You can also be assured that the NZSA will complete a phone interview, allow the candidate to sit a basic reading and writing test, and where possible, have a face to face interview. This helps us better understand the candidate and provide your organisation with candidates that we believe are fit for purpose. We can also give them some coaching and support for when they come to interview with you.
