Waikato-Tainui has a Careers Pathways team that work in partnership to discover opportunities to broker meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities for our tribal members.

We develop strong working relationships with key industry partners across a number of sectors to identify and create opportunities that will enhance and further our tribal members career aspirations and development.

Below are some of the offerings available for tribal members.

Whaia ko te Mana Motuhake


Waikato-Tainui understands that looking for employment and getting back into the workforce can be a daunting task. We've created Whaaia ko te Mana Motuhake which is a pre-employment service to empower you to create your own career pathway.

Te Rau Mahi


Te Rau Mahi is a Waikato-Tainui business network allowing us to connect our Iwi members with our industry partners who provide employment opportunities. 

Showcase your skills, grow your connections and find opportunities, across our network of iwi members looking for mahi, our iwi members in business looking for opportunities, and our key industry partners looking to employ our iwi members. Te Rau Mahi makes it easier for you to connect with the right people.
