The job search and return to work process can take commitment, belief in yourself and persistence.
The job search
The job search process is most successful if you know what you’re looking for – and where to look.
Your Workwise employment consultant / kairapu tūranga mahi can search for a job for you, you can search by yourself, or you can search together. They can also help with your CV, support you with interviews and sort out all the paperwork.
How much support you want is up to you.
What to expect when you get back to work
We’ve put together some practical advice and information for you, to provide reassurance and help you return to work with confidence.
