Ready to turn your career dreams into a reality?

You’re in the right place.

Hi there, we’re Explore Careers - and we’re leading the way for early career and employment opportunities across New Zealand. We focus on giving young people (aka YOU) the best possible tools, resources, advice, guidance, and opportunities - right when you need them.

So far, we’ve helped over 1.5 million young people globally kickstart exciting careers through our programs, and we’re just getting started!

We know you start thinking about your dream jobs much sooner than you typically get access to the tools you need to make them happen. We’ve made it our mission to change that.

Dishing up hard facts, solid truths, and career events you’ll actually want to be involved in, our programs are a bold blend of everything you need to start formalising your career plans, from daydreams to successful outcomes.

Utilising our 130+ network of leading, nationwide employers, we’re the rock-solid launchpad you need to get career-ready and career-optimized.

So, ready to turn your career dreams into a reality? You can with Explore Careers!
