About the Programme

The Job Ready Programme is for international students in Canterbury who are wanting to find employment in New Zealand after graduation. The first part of the programme is a series of workshops to train students in job seeking skills and kiwi work culture.

After the workshop series, some students will be matched with businesses that have projects requiring an international perspective.

The programme will offer training and mentorship after placement for both the businesses and international interns involved to ensure mutually beneficial outcomes are achieved.


The Job Ready Programme is supported by ChristchurchNZ, University of Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury.
