Since 2002, City Care and MSD have operated a joint initiative targeting young people fulfilling certain criteria. This Pre-Apprentice Programme offers the young people a fixed term contract and the opportunity to work in a wide variety of City Care positions. Training and support is provided, and the pre-apprentices are encouraged to develop a good work ethic, with the aim of moving into a full-time role with City Care on completion of their term.
To date over 200 young people have taken part, and in 2013 City Care employed 16 pre-apprentices from the programme.
In 2012 and 2013 City Care, Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) and MSD teamed up to provide work for 50 Work and Income people to work in the red-zoned residential areas of Christchurch. The InZone crews kept the streets and vacant sections of red-zoned areas tidy to help manage the remaining residents.
