For Real is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to fast-track training, and get a career and a real job repairing Christchurch’s roading and underground piping.

For Real is a training and employment project run by the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT)


If you’re interested, check out the For Real website and look out for the recruitment bus that is visiting in February.

What’s in it for me?

If you meet the criteria and are accepted into the programme your training will be funded and you’ll have a job! You’ll do part of your training on a course with some work experience, and the rest on-the-job. You’ll then learn as you earn – after being matched with a suitable employer and starting work, you’ll continue working towards a national qualification, supported by a tutor assigned to you by For Real.

Think about it – not only will you be helping Christchurch get back on its feet, you’ll also be setting yourself up with lifelong skills and a career that could really take you places.

I’m keen, how do I find out more?

  • Find out more on the For Real website – the website also has links to the For Real Facebook page, and the For Real blog.
  • Look out for the SCIRT mobile recruitment bus. The bus visited Marlborough in November and will return on on 20 and 21 February 2013.
