About Kiwi Can Do

Our partnership with Work and Income

Kiwi Can Do is a Work and Income partner specialising in the Construction industry. We are funded by the Ministry of Social Development in support of the Construction Sector Accord.

As an outcomes provider, our aim is to work closely with trusted trade employers to support those wanting to get off the work and income job seekers benefit and into sustained employment.

Our courses for Work and Income job seekers help Kiwis into a career in the Construction industry.

There are no fees or costs to employers or trainees for our Kiwi Can Do service.

The Construction Sector Accord is a combined effort from government and industry helping to create a high-performance construction sector to lead our economic recovery.
