We all started somewhere.

That first foot in the door was all you needed.

Now it can be your turn to open it for someone else.

Work Experience

Employers can provide that vital first step into the world of work by partnering with us through our Youth Employment Programme – Licence to Work, to provide authentic Work Experience for local young people.

We match a young person with your business for Work Experience which is 2 days per week for approximately 10 weeks. We provide support during this time to ensure a successful outcome for your business and our young person.


If you have an entry level position or apprenticeships, YOUth Inspire can provide you with a suitable candidate for you to consider. We provide support to our placements for up to a year or until the age of 25. We work closely with Work and Income to help our young people get work gear and certificates as well as wage subsidies.


You can sponsor a young person in your community to get their driver lience and get road and work ready.
