Rock Shop & KBB Music Gateway Training
New Zealand’s next Retail Rock Star?
Retail at the Rock Shop is an exciting career choice with loads of possibilities – from helping customers, product displays, marketing, to running a store.
To be considered for this opportunity, students must have a good work ethic, be competent in music performance or composition, enjoy talking to people, be customer focused, have a passion for learning and be willing to apply themselves.
How it works
The training is targeted at year 12 and 13 students. It’s designed for students who are interested in pursuing a career as a Retail Professional in the Music Industry: a real Retail Rockstar!
The students require credits when on placement for NCEA purposes. Assessing will need to be undertaken by the School or ServiceIQ (at a cost).
With the Rock Shop and KBB Music Gateway program, students will be required to meet certain application criteria prior to an interview for acceptance onto the program. We’re looking for aptitude and attitude! The application process is to determine the ‘best’ fit for individual stores and to ensure the student is placed within a suitable store for their learning, development and the best possible experience.
After discussion with ServiceIQ, candidates will need to supply their preferred three stores (as vacancies are limited), Cover Letter and CV.
