You may not know it, but Vivo is a not a franchise - it’s a New Zealand owned business run by two hard working Kiwi families, who started it from scratch 8 years ago. Now with over 80 salons, the Vivo family are part of neighbourhoods all across the country. We take our place in our local communities really seriously, and are always looking for ways to strengthen these bonds.
Mana in Mahi (Strength in Work) Scheme is a new workplace apprentice initiative aimed at young beneficiaries aged between 18-24.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern recently announced a new workplace apprentice initiative - Mana in Mahi (Strength in Work) Scheme. When the PM was looking for companies to get on board with the pilot program, Vivo saw it as an amazing opportunity. Vivo would be able to use our platform as industry experts to open up exciting career pathways for young people who might not otherwise have had the opportunity. The program is aimed at young beneficiaries aged between 18-24 - with Mana in Mahi, they will be placed in a Vivo apprenticeship program and given the guidance, mentorship and experience needed to obtain valuable qualifications and meaningful work placement.
We create strong career paths for our Vivo teams through extensive support networks, creative opportunities and a culture of integrity.
Within the Vivo team, we have always tried to do things differently - we have developed industry-leading training methods and techniques that have been created by some of the most talented stylists in New Zealand. We create strong career paths for our Vivo teams through extensive support networks, creative opportunities and a culture of integrity. At Vivo, we have the right tools to succeed, and are thrilled to be part of the pilot program!
The Vivo family looks forward to welcoming our Mana in Mahi apprentices, and are excited to raise up the next generation of talented young hairstylists in New Zealand.
