Employment & Personal Development
Keen People, Enterprising Work
Kilmarnock Enterprises offers a dynamic and supportive workplace for people with disabilities, enabling careers and futures that may previously have been considered unattainable. Our staff take great pride in being part of a professional team and are passionate about what they do.
We look for individuals....
with a fantastic work ethic
who are productive and reliable
who can manage themselves and their behaviour
and who don’t need a high level of supervision.
Successful applicants receive full training to meet the diverse commercial services we provide to businesses and a wage relevant to their individual ability.
All our employees sign an individual employment agreement for casual, part time or full time work. In return they gain all the provisions and employment rights set within relevant New Zealand legislation.
If you, or someone you know, would be a great addition to our team then firstly please get in touch by email or call us on 03 348 5162.
From there we will arrange a visit to the Kilmarnock site so both parties can get a better understanding of each other.
If appropriate we can then discuss a one month work experience placement for the potential employee, whilst they remain on their benefit as part of a Pre Employment Programme with Work and Income New Zealand.
Towards the end of the month an assessment of an individual’s abilities is carried out. We use a Wage Assessment Tool, approved by the Ministry of Social Development and department of Labour, to determine the level at which an employee is working and remunerated accordingly. When appropriate a potential employee's caregiver may be consulted.
Successful applicants will then be offered an Employment Agreement and welcomed to the team!
Transition and work experience from schools can also be offered, so please give us a call, we would be very happy to discuss this with you.
We take the health and safety of our employees very seriously. We meet the secondary level requirements for ACCs Workplace Safety Management Practices and are audited regularly by ACC. Being part of this programme ensures we continue to provide a fantastic, supportive and safe work environment for everyone.
