Entrant: Teen Jobs
About My Business
Teen Jobs' mission is to provide the simplest way for employers to find teenage employees, households to find helpers & teenagers to find jobs. We have flipped the traditional job finding method where you place an ad and wait for people to apply. Instead we list the teenagers and employers and households can browse teenagers that match under the 'where, when and what' algorithm. And its all completely free. We provide teenagers with life skills, including experience, work ethics, responsibility and establish good work habits in New Zealand's youth. Through doing this we aim to be the leading teenage job placement site in New Zealand while helping to reduce the youth unemployment rate which is currently 13.2% and 3 x the adult rate. We currently have over 2,500 teenagers registered and have gone live to the main New Zealand centres with many job contacts happening every week. The website is ideal for smaller part-time work or one-off jobs due to the ease of use for the employer and low employer cost.
Why We Should Win The Peoples Choice Award
We are completely free to use for teenagers and employers/households. Our overall goal is to reduce the youth unemployment rate (costs NZ $345m per year) and help provide teenagers with life skills, including experience, work ethics, responsibility and establish good work habits in New Zealand's youth. We are trying to grow the whole teenage job market and change mindsets. We have the work hard play hard initiative with teenagers from the Breakers basketball, NZ Paralympics, NZ black sticks representatives, etc giving inspirational quotes and stories.
