Kia ora and welcome to the Not So Redundant Club! This is a space for you to connect, support and share your stories among a community of inspiring, hard-working Kiwis who happen to find themselves out of work due to the impacts of COVID-19.
Our name reflects the fact that regardless of our current work situation, we, as people, as friends and whānau are not redundant. We are a powerful force for good in the world, and we’re here to help lift each other up and keep moving forward, together.
Losing a job or your business can hit you right to your core. It can leave you filled with self-doubt, feeling lonely, stressed and lacking a sense of belonging and purpose. There are literally thousands of Kiwis out there who have lost or will lose their jobs or businesses due to COVID-19. This is shocking and scary, but it also means that you are not in this alone.
We have created this community to help incredible Kiwis from all over Aotearoa find, support and connect with each other as we all navigate this COVID-19 world together.
The Not So Redundant Club is here for anyone who is seeking meaningful work, in any sector.
Whether you've been made redundant or had your international work or travel plans disrupted, had to close down your own business, or if you find yourself looking for meaningful work for any other reason, we're here to help.
We're building a community of Kiwis to support each other as we journey back into work. Our Kaupapa is He waka eke noa - We are all in this together. By joining the Not So Redundant Club, you will be able to:
We are a community. That means we're here to connect you with others sharing similar experiences, so you can learn from and support each other. The more you share, the more support you'll get back.

We are based in Aotearoa New Zealand, and our content is tailored towards our Kiwi community. If you're in another part of the world, you're most welcome to join to see how we are doing things here in NZ!
