Our Story

Established in July 2000 a key focus for us here at EmployNZ over this time is that we recognise each individual is a part of a community; and for our communities to succeed, grow and prosper socially and economically our individuals must also succeed, grow and prosper. We have the privilege of being part of people’s lives as they prepare for their personal transitions from benefit dependency to higher levels of tertiary education, training or employment.

Our Purpose

To provide a supportive learning environment which inspires our students and clients to achieve their educational and employment goals.

Who Are We

“Te Taumata Oranga – We Change Lives”

  • Committed to making a difference
  • Be Accountable
  • Talk openly and honestly
  • Focus on success
We operate on a partnership philosophy. We partner with Government (specifically Ministry of Social Development, the Tertiary Education Commission and New Zealand Qualifications Authority) to provide our clients with quality, relevant and achievable training and development. We partner with industry to gain real opportunities for our clients to pathway into employment. We partner with other education providers (secondary schools, private training establishments, tertiary institutes and industry training organisations) to source further training and identify best practices that will benefit our clients.
Founded by Robyn Phillips we have maintained her vision that we continuously work towards providing a comprehensive range of motivational, life-skill and skill based training that is commercially and community based, and focused at supporting people into, and within, higher education and employment.
