endorseMe® is a digital work-readiness tool to help identify, develop and record real skills for the real world.

The endorseMe® system consists of a smartphone app for young people and an online portal for co-ordinators and endorsers.

endorseMe® is free to use in the Waikato – and is also available nationwide. Users need to be registered to access endorseMe® – contact us to get started!


endorseMe® gives young people the opportunity to be endorsed for their employability skills by their mentors, employers, teachers and others working in the community – and create a record of their skills, achievements and experiences.

endorseMe® is based on the New Zealand Employability Skills Framework – a set of skills or capabilities which New Zealand employers have identified as most essential.

These skills include:

      • Positive attitude
      • Communication
      • Team work
      • Self-management
      • Willingness to learn
      • Thinking skills
      • Resilience

Definition: work readiness;

“making sure our young people have the right skills, attitudes and preparation to help them find and keep a job.”
