You will enjoy working creatively, autonomously and work effectively in an interdisciplinary team being able to communicate easily with a variety of people. You will need to think on your feet, remain calm under pressure and really encourage our clients along their journey. You'll naturally be a problem solver, quick thinker and enjoy connecting with the community. You'll use your non-judgemental attitude and belief to encourage clients to change and grow. What you need:

  • Knowledge of the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 will be advantageous

Ko tā mātou mahi | We offer
In addition to being key to supporting the delivery of our services, you'll be doing so in a national organisation committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of whanau - both kamahi and the people we support. You'll join a group of people that live by our values - which means you can take pride in not just what we achieve, but HOW we achieve it. Importantly, we offer great job satisfaction! You'll be improving someone's quality of life by helping them realise their potential and no two days will be the same. AND finally, you'll want to work here because we are committed to diversity and inclusion. So, you don't have to worry about putting on a fake work persona. Come as you are, and just be YOU! We are a supportive team that enjoys celebrating successes, however little or large they may be.
