A ready-made workforce
More than 100,000 people live in Lower Hutt. Many residents choose to work locally ‑ they can’t go past the easy living, the close-knit community and the ease of getting outdoors. So you’ve got ready access to experienced staff whatever your business.
Lower Hutt is within a 40-minute commute to a regional workforce of 180,000. This is made possible by New Zealand’s best commuter services, including rail, bus and ferry.
We support local young people into finding career pathways into employment. We've done this by working together with businesses to create a work placement scheme with a difference. It's hands-on, supported by a governance structure and a team of volunteers - and the results are great for both businesses and young employees.
Our focus is to see all young people under 25 engaged in meaningful education, training or employment. Over 120 local businesses have partnered with us since 2014 - and they have great things to say.
YOUth Inspire is championed by Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace and is part of the nationwide Mayors Taskforce for Jobs initiative committed to building a brighter future for all young people in Aotearoa.
