CadetMax is a youth employment service that prepares and supports young people (aged 18-24) into work. CadetMax provide fun and effective work readiness training, great career advice, and gives young people the tools they need to thrive in the workforce. The Waikato Chamber cooperates with the Ministry of Social Development and the Auckland Business Chamber to deliver this service in the Waikato.

This service provides potential employers access to qualified and supported young jobseekers. Training sessions for these jobseekers happen throughout the year, and include short, casual networking events where you can meet and talk with these jobseekers. If you wish to be kept informed of when these events are taking place, please contact us.
