Job Description

Live Life Disability Support

Location: Nelson, with potential for one role to be located in Marlborough depending on the locations of the preferred applicants.

  • Do you like to connect with people?
  • Do you see the beauty and strength in diversity and cultural differences?
  • Do you have vision, courage, passion, confidence, commitment, and other qualities to be a leader who encourages innovation?
  • Can you communicate in a way that values and acknowledges the people we support, family, whanau, and your teams? And do you like a challenge as you do not like the mundane? Great! We hope our positions are just the opportunity you are looking for...

About the opportunity

We have two permanent, full-time Nelson-based Group Leader roles. However, we may consider basing one position in Blenheim. These positions cover the Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough communities. You will be joining two other Group Leaders, already in place, in the Complex Supports team.

Honesty is the best policy, and these roles are busy and at times hectic. Staffing shortages and the ongoing impact of COVID and other such 'bugs' means you will need to be flexible, think fast, be resilient and have a great sense of humour. We provide you with wonderful team support, external supervision, daily team catch-ups, onsite parking, views of planes and a coffee machine!

The complex group (and don't let that put you off as we are all complex in our own little ways!) has four distinctive work areas:

  • Family Partnerships
  • Physical Disability (PDSS) and Long Term Chronic Health Conditions (LTCHC)
  • Individual Residential Placements
  • Residential Respite for children (tamariki) and youth (rangitahi), and Residential for adult (pakeke) flat mates who present at times with behaviours of concern

These roles will be for the Family Partnership team and the PDSS and LTCHC team.

You will collaborate with your teams to facilitate greater choice and control for the people we support and their natural networks, embedding Enabling Good Lives principles and active support. Your area will include Nelson, Tasman and Blenheim and there are pool cars you can book for your travel.

For more information, please read the position description available on our careers site, including the job specifications at

Ko wai he kaitono tōtika? (Who is an appropriate applicant?)

You will hold a NZ Certificate in Health and Wellbeing (Level four) Advanced Support, or an equivalent health or disability related qualification as assessed by the Ministry of Health (see link below). Preferred candidates will ideally hold a Level five Diploma or above, or be working towards Level five or above in Human Services or equivalent.

You will also have a sound knowledge of Person Centred support as well as good time management skills. Experience working in the field of disability is advantageous.


Te Whatu Ora strongly endorses Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

We believe that to achieve equity outcomes for Māori we need a workforce reflective of the population it serves. We recruit for cultural competence and

encourage applications from candidates from all cultures.

He waka eke noa. We are all in this together.
