We are making a significant change...

In 2018 the owners of JobCafe decided to change our status to that of a Social Enterprise.  This effectively means our profits will be invested into projects that help make New Zealand a better place to LIVE. Work and Play.  Our initial projects focus on becoming a champion for diversity, in particular we will work on 'Possibility' our network for people with disabilities able to work and 'The Kumara Vine' our Maori & Pasifika network.  In future we will look for other projects that can help make a positive difference for all Kiwi's.

If you would like to help support our mahi (work) please simply join our talent pool or 'like' us on facebook to start with.  If you are keen to get more involved feel free to contact us via this website.
