Just The Job is back on TV2 today, with a brand new season, presenting career options to young Kiwis.

The first episode of the season takes a look at two career options offered by the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Peter Clark from Onehunga High School in Auckland can’t believe his luck when he gets to check out a career as an air warfare specialist aboard the air force P-3K2 Orion. He’s always wanted to be a pilot but when he gets a taste of what the AWS role is all about, he discovers there’s plenty more amazing opportunities with the RNZAF outside of flying the aircrafts.

Elsewhere, student Ashleigh Tauariki teams up with Corporal Jerry Drummond, an air security specialist, to discover what goes into the varied role, experiencing the rifle range, and meeting the dogs that secure the air force base.

Just The Job’s executive producer, Dave Mason, is delighted to be returning with a new batch of exciting career options.

“It’s amazing to be back for our fifth series,” Mason says. “The programme has proven successful because it fulfils a need for this type of information. It’s a milestone for any television programme to get to series five and we’re excited to be offering more of what our viewers want.”

This season, there are more Maori-oriented roles, and Teach NZ careers are part of the show for the first time.

“It’s great that as Just The Job continues to grow and develop we’ve been able to bring on board new organisations and expand the careers we feature,” says Mason. “We’ve now filmed 150 different careers which is a wonderful library of information for viewers.”

“We all know how hard it can be trying to make the best choice when it comes to a career so our aim is to share as much information as possible and show people how they can give it their best shot to secure the job they want.”

Just the Job returns to TV2, with a brand new series that shows young people the excellent opportunities awaiting them when they leave school.

With Clinton Randell back at the helm, each episode explores three possible careers and gives an insight into the highs and lows of each one. Series four gets off to a nautical start, featuring a look behind the scenes of deep sea fishing. The episode explores different facets to the industry including being a deckhand, maintenance, and factory processing.

Executive producer, Dave Mason, is enthusiastic to be returning for a fourth run of the successful show. “It’s great to be back with a fantastic mix of 30 more careers,” he says.

The team also has good reason to celebrate, having reached a milestone this year. “We filmed our 100th career in this series,” Mason says. “It was a real highlight that, since beginning the series two years ago, we’ve been able to profile such a huge range of jobs.”

The latest run has been expanded even further by incorporating job roles that require a degree to enter.

“We received requests from schools to feature more professions, as well as trades,” Mason explains. “Some of the careers we profile in this category include an engineering officer with the RNZAF, physiotherapy and public health nursing.”

As with previous series of Just the Job, all secondary schools throughout New Zealand will receive DVD copies of the programme to use as a careers resource, and Mason is keen for the show to be used as an invaluable resource to those starting to think about life after their education.

“Trying to choose a career or make that step into the job market can be tricky, especially when you haven’t done it before,” Mason says. “So the facts we include are all aimed at offering as much information as possible, to make things easier.”

This series is as varied as ever, with the team taking on everything from viticulture, emergency response, public health protection, quarrying, air force aircraft technician, to automotive heavy engineering, and plenty more to keep you interested.

We all know how difficult it can be deciding exactly what career might suit us best, and this first season of the local series Just the Job steps in to give young Kiwis a behind-the-scenes look at a range of occupations.

Just The Job aims to give new ideas and guidance to teens figuring out the career market, with an up-close and personal insight into the myriad of options on their doorstep. Each of the ten episodes features three different careers, with three high school students getting hands-on and trying them out. An experienced mentor is with them to answer any question that comes up, and so they will have the chance to figure out all the pros and cons of the job before deciding whether it is really for them.

Executive Producer Dave Mason believes the time is right for such a programme:

“There are literally thousands of possibilities for school leavers these days and the decision can be formidable. But how can they make an informed choice if they are unaware of the range of opportunities out there?”

Just the Job is presented by Clinton Randell who says, “the information given is much more accessible than the stacks of brochures you get at school. Reading about it is just not the same.”

Clinton adds, “this gives people a ‘try-before-you-buy’ experience. You can watch people in the job and decide if it would really suit you!”
In the first episode Liam Tamepo Sines from Rosmini College has his heart set on a lucrative career in property development, Margo Gardner from Western Springs College wants to find out about becoming a green keeper, and Sam Henry from Massey High School has a dream to sit behind the wheel of a big rig.

Just the Job is all about helping students realise they have a raft of opportunities available to them, and that they can have exciting, challenging careers if they just know where to look to get started.

Saturday 7 March, 9.30am on TV2

TV2’s Just the Job is back for a third series, continuing the successful formula of taking students behind the scenes to get a unique first hand look at the range of career opportunities available to them.

Hosted by NZ Idol Top-10 finisher Clinton Randell, Just the Job profiles another thirty careers throughout the series, which gets off to a spectacular start with an Air Force career showcase and finishes with a medical special.

Just the Job premieres with a programme special, featuring three exciting careers in the RNZAF – a pilot, an avionics technician and a safety and surface technician. Watch out for Rob Fyfe, Air New Zealand’s CEO who talks about how an Air Force career stood him in good stead for where he is today.

Sunday 1 February, 5.30pm on TV6

Just the Job is a local series that gives high school students a unique insight into the myriad of career paths on their doorstep.

We all know how difficult it can be deciding exactly what career might suit us best. That’s where Just the Job steps in. The series has been designed as an informative and entertaining tool to help secondary school students gain a first-hand understanding of what happens ‘on the job.’ Each week three students, who are between 14 and 18 years old, try out possible future careers in building, tourism, landscaping, farming, fishing, hairdressing and a number of other fields.

By adding a mentor and some hands-on experience into the mix, they have every chance to find out the pros and cons of the job before deciding whether it’s for them or not.

Clinton Randell, a NZ Idol Top Ten finalist, presents the lively introductions to each segment.

Randell is very excited about the opportunities the series offers young people. “The great aspect of this programme is it demonstrates there is a lot more involved with particular careers than people may ever have thought. Often preconceived ideas are just blown out of the water.”

Careers consultant Sarah McIndoe wraps up each episode with some great advice designed to help high schoolers kick start their own career investigations.

Executive Producer, Dave Mason, believes this is an important series for young people. “This series not only creates awareness about a variety of careers, but shows what is available in one part of the country to young career seekers in another part of the country.

“We hope Just the Job helps students realise they have a raft of opportunities available to them and that they can have exciting, challenging careers if they just know where to look to get started.”

 

Saturday 24 May, 9.30am

Local show Just The Job returns for another informative, entertaining and unique behind-the-scenes look at 30 more career possibilities for school leavers.

Just the Job is designed as a showcase for the wide range of career options readily attainable for any young person searching for what they want to do when they leave high school. Executive producer, Dave Mason explains many young people have little idea about the range of options available to them: “There are literally thousands of possibilities for school levers these days and the choice can be formidable. But how can they make an informed choice if they are unaware of the range of opportunities out there?” Dave believes Just The Job offers students a helping hand.
He says the first series of the show was incredibly well received: “The success of Just The Job is incredible. Word spread far and wide about the series and we were delighted and surprised to be asked to supply 200 copies of the first series to Work and Income New Zealand for use in their offices, up and down the country, as an inspirational medium to their clients.”

The Cook Islands Ministry Of Education also requested copies to show students a glimpse of the opportunities that lie beyond their islands, and DVD’s of the show were sent to all high schools in New Zealand, giving careers counsellors an additional current and vibrant resource for students. Just The Job supports the career tools already available to Kiwi students through schools.

This series follows the same format that made the first season so popular. During each episode, three students from around the country ‘sample’ two days in a career that might offer them a future. In the process, viewers gain an insight into an industry which may have had little media coverage previously.

With support from a mentor – someone already succeeding in the career – students really discover the ‘ins and outs’ of an occupation before deciding whether it could be for them or not.

Filmed nationwide, the second series of Just The Job features a diverse range of industries including: salmon farming; mining; tourism; retailing; arboriculture; Customs; food technology; civil engineering; and airport customer services.

The series is again hosted by Clinton Randell, a NZ Idol top-10 finisher who looks set to enjoy a high profile, exciting career himself, and wraps up each week with invaluable tips, especially tailored for school leavers, from career consultant Sarah McIndoe.

Waitakere-based television production company Dave Mason Productions has created the series with support from numerous industry training organisations. “We really hope young people will understand when they view the series that there are some incredible career options throughout New Zealand,” says Dave. “Whether the indoors or outdoors appeal, whether dealing with people or a physical challenge is what someone wants, we’ve strived to cover a range of careers so there’s something for everyone.”

Just The Job, Saturday 24 May, 9.30am.

Just The Job & Let’s Get Inventin’ Saturday 27 October & Sunday 28 October

This weekend on TV2, check out the ambitious, creative and clever Kiwi kids who are featured on local favourites Just The Job and Let’s Get Inventin’.

While series two of Let’s Get Inventin’ is proving that young New Zealanders do have the best ideas in the world, Just The Job is coming up with ways we can all make the most of our skills to find the perfect career. On Saturdays at 4.00pm Just The Job steps in to give young Kiwis a behind-the-scenes look at a range of occupations, with teens trying on different job options for size. Then on Sundays at 5.00pm, Let’s Get Inventin’ teams up kids with wild ideas with all sorts of technical experts, to make their unique concepts reality.
This week Just The Job presenter Clinton Randell checks out three very different, but equally hands-on, careers. Thomas Duncan (16), from Featherston, wants to try commercial fishing, he figures, who wouldn’t want to fish all day for a living? James Tauapou Ikifitu (15), from Western Springs, has an interest in the plumbing business, but wasn’t aware of the variety it offers until he spends some time on the job. And Tui Shepheard (16) loves high-end cars, so decides that a glimpse into the world of auto-finishing Porsches, Maserattis and Ferraris could be the perfect occupation for her.

With 360 hooks to be baited and set, Thomas discovers a day on the water can be fun but involves lots of hard work too. He also learns fishing is a job for the early riser! James discovers that if he chooses plumbing when he leaves school, his skills could be in high demand as an industry labour shortage is expected. Meanwhile Tui has to ask herself whether or not she has the technical mind and eye for detail required for the work she has chosen.

Let’s Get Inventin’ this Sunday asks a question that is slightly less practical: wouldn’t it be great to strap on a device and just take off like Superman? Eight-year-old Kenan Grant from Hamilton thinks it would be amazing. He and Build Buddy Geoff Bell join forces with a range of fun-loving experts to create The Flying Pack, so Kenan can fly to the shops, to school, or anywhere!

Kenan thinks The Flying Pack would solve the traffic problem and be a whole lot of fun as well. Powered by two jet turbine engines, the team build a powerful yet lightweight device capable of lifting his weight. Jet pilot Flight Lieutenant Craig Abela drops in to give advice, and stunt safety guy Mark Harris is on hand to make sure the first test flight is executed safely – giving Kenan his very own flameproof flying suit. Hopefully he will get off the ground!

TV2 is encouraging Kiwi ingenuity and ambition every weekend with Just The Job, Saturday 27 October at 4.00pm, and Let’s Get Inventin’, Sunday 28 October at 5.00pm.

Just The Job Saturday 13 October, 4.00pm

We all know how difficult it can be deciding exactly what career might suit us best, so the brand-new local series Just the Job is stepping in to give young Kiwis a behind-the-scenes look at a range of occupations.

Just the Job aims to give new ideas and guidance to teens figuring out the career market, with an up-close and personal insight into the myriad of paths on their doorstep.

But how can they make an informed choice if they are unaware of the range of opportunities out there?”

Just the Job is presented by newcomer Clinton Randell, who hit our screens last year as an NZ Idol top-ten finalist. Clinton is also excited about the opportunities the series offers young people, saying, “the information given is much more accessible than the stacks of brochures you get at school. Reading about it is just not the same. This gives people a ‘try-before-you-buy’ experience. You can watch people in the job and decide if it would really suit you.”

The series has been designed as an informative and entertaining tool to help secondary school students gain a first hand understanding of what happens ‘on the job’, and careers consultant Sarah McIndoe wraps up each episode with some great advice designed to help high schoolers kick start their own career investigations.

Viewers can expect to see a wide range of careers on Just the Job; from building, tourism, landscaping, and aquaculture to farming, fishing, and hairdressing. In the first episode, three Auckland students are out to put three very different careers to test. Liam Tamepo Sines (16) from Rosmini College has his heart set on a lucrative career in property development, Margo Gardner (17) from Western Springs College wants to find out about becoming a green keeper, and Sam Henry (17) from Massey High School has a dream to sit behind the wheel of a big rig.

Clinton was able to accompany the teens on their work experience, and says that he learned a lot. “The show will get rid of stereotypes about certain careers. I found there was so much more to most jobs than you’d expect.”

Just the Job is all about helping students realise they have a raft of opportunities available to them, and that they can have exciting, challenging careers if they just know where to look to get started.

Just the Job begins Saturday 13 October, 4.00pm on TV2.
