Job Description

Comcare assists people with mental health or addiction issues to live well in the Canterbury community. We provide a rich and diverse range of Social Housing and Mental Health Support Services to the local community. 

Our Housing Service Delivery provides a range of housing-related assistance for those experiencing mental illness and/or addiction issues. 

The Complex Case Advisor role has evolved from the increasing collaboration of Government, Non-Government and Community Housing providers concerned with those who do not seem to have adequate housing pathways in the current environment, and who need unique and tailored responses.  

Applicants for this role would need a good knowledge of current homelessness interventions and ideally, sound knowledge of the Mental Health, Ministry of Social Development and Corrections systems. The role involves working with these agencies to advise about and provide assessment and plans for those who are put forward by the collaboration of these agencies. 

We are seeking someone who will be organised, empathetic and able to work well in a multi-agency environment. We would also be keen to hear from applicants who have a Tertiary Qualification in a mental health related occupation (e.g. Nursing, Social Work, Occ. Therapy). 

The key attributes and abilities required for this role are: 

  • Experience in Mental Health, Housing Support or related field  
  • New Zealand Certificate in Health and Wellbeing - Level 4 (or similar Level 4 Qualification relevant to social service provision) 
  • Strong problem solving skills  
  • A positive approach along with a passion to help others  
  • Flexible, adaptable, confident and able to make well considered decisions 
  • Culturally aware, non-judgemental and respectful 
  • Strong professional boundaries and a good work ethic.   

In return Comcare provides a supportive and positive culture that is committed to the ongoing development of its workforce.  

“Ko te whakaora, he hīkoi whakāmarama. Māna anō tōna ake ara whakaora e whakarau” 

“A journey of discovery where an individual leads their own unique process of moving forwards”  

Applications close 3pm Tuesday 7 February 2023.
