Teen Jobs

Josh from Mount Maunganui

Hi, My name is Josh and I am 14. While looking for some part time work, I discovered that there was no easy way to find the jobs that were out there. Established job websites are for older people & there was nothing for school students looking for part time work. This is when the idea was born, a free to use website for connecting teenagers wanting to get a job & employers and households with work to do!

This year I entered the Young Innovators Awards for my website idea called Teen Jobs. I was fortunate enough to come in 3rd place for the junior category. One of the judges at YiA, Suan Yeo, (Google’s Head of Education for Australia & New Zealand), commented, "Teen Jobs really stood out for the thought about the end user.” After my success at YiA, I was encouraged to develop the idea, as it would make a real difference to teenagers & the way they find work. The youth unemployment rates in New Zealand are very high, with 11.2% of 15 – 19 year olds unemployed. This costs the government $345 million dollars a year! This website can help those teenagers find employment and gain valuable employment related skills.

Since the Young Innovators Awards I have developed the my idea into a fully operational website. Teen Jobs is an innovative idea that enables teenagers to find jobs, while being completely free. Students and teenagers list themselves and the areas they want to work and employers and households can simply search and find teenagers to do the jobs they require. This flips the traditional way where the employer lists the job which proves impractical for smaller or part time jobs. Job categories include everything from household work like lawn mowing or babysitting right through to retail and business positions.

Teen Jobs is registering teenagers now to build the pool of workers & will be going fully live to employers & households on the 1st of December 2018.
