We welcome a new generation of Kiwi Talent

Watch careers videos



#CareersAdvice has been launched to support young Kiwis navigating a new world of work, by bringing the voice of industry to the public. This initiative is being led by the ASB/KPMG Strategic Insights Panel.

We know that that there are so many exciting career development opportunities and it's sometimes hard to know what's out there. 

So, a whole range of New Zealanders doing cool and interesting things have banded together and created a suite of free and authentic video content with careers advice for you.

In over 100 short videos, you’ll get insight into different career journeys, hear about the kinds of skills that are being looked for when recruiting and some all-round helpful advice from those already on their career path

As skills required by businesses change, we are thinking broadly and inclusively about how we define talent. ASB Executive General Manager for Technology, Innovation and Payments, Simon Tong, acknowledges this change:

“ASB is proud to be involved in helping pioneer this initiative as we understand the future of work is changing – today businesses are hiring people for roles that didn’t exist a year ago.

We have been delighted with the positive response to #CareersAdvice from a range of businesses across different industries that genuinely care about the future of New Zealand."

"How we credential and recognise skills and knowledge will need to change in an increasingly global and digital world. Qualifications will continue to play an important role, but learners, employers, communities and iwi need access to a wider range of training and education that is highly responsive in a rapidly changing environment. 

Consequently, NZQA is preparing for a future where micro credentials will play an important part in the skills ecosystem. 

Micro credentials will allow for a wider variety of skill development and training to be recognised through showing the level and duration of non-qualification learning against the New Zealand Qualifications Framework."

- Karen Poutasi, NZQA Chief Executive
