Employability Plus Programme (EPP)

The Employability Plus Programme (EPP) is a new initiative that gives University of Waikato students the opportunity to gain work-ready skills through volunteer activity. Students will be recognised for the extra work that they do and stand out when they are job hunting by gaining the practical skills and experience sought by prospective employers.

Volunteering is one of three modules that the programme will offer. Students will also take part in personal development workshops and contribute to the University in a variety of ways.

Students enrolled in the Employability Plus Programme will be able to identify which of the positions listed on the Volunteering Waikato website are offered by EPP partners. Students will then be able to apply for those positions directly online - www.volunteeringwaikato.org.nz - or visit the Volunteering Waikato team to discuss their options.

You can make an appointment by phoning Volunteering Waikato on 07 839 3191.
