Employment Support

Volunteer work can be a stepping stone to paid employment. Step Ahead supports volunteer commitments within the organisation, for it’s members. Examples of these commitments include preparing weekly meals, facilitating or co-facilitating groups, driving vans, lawn mowing and gardening. Volunteer groups at Stanmore Rd and Puriri St also participate in community volunteer iniatives. Support to seek volunteer work in the wider community or paid work is provided by Employment Consultants who visit Step Ahead and speak to members regularly.

Coming up in December at Stanmore Road

Could you be interested in work in the rest home industry?
1:30pm – Wednesday 4th December at Stanmore Road

Maria from Jobconnect will talk to us about the kind of jobs available in rest homes and other residential settings. This will include what the work involves, hours, working conditions, the experience, qualifications and personal qualities you need to do this work and how rewarding it can be.

Maria will also talk about how to get the jobs, completing applications and cold calling. This is a great opportunity to talk to someone who has a lot of experience supporting people into work. Come along to find out if this could be an option for you.
