He kōrero mō te tūranga - The role
The focus of your role will be using your experience and clinical skills to work alongside kaimahi to enable them to provide quality, safe and evidence-based support to whaiora on their journey to living well in the community.
In the role, you can draw on the strengths of the dynamic team around you. This role would include quality control, input into audits, support with the day-to-day running of the service, ongoing liaison and communication with other professionals to ensure that we are working together and providing the best supports for whaiora in our service.
You will also carry a small caseload of your own, (comprising the more challenging clients in our service), commensurate with your level of experience. You will also provide support with the practice inductions of staff and whaiora into the service. While there is nothing average about this position, your average day could go from goal planning to meeting with clinicians to supporting the team through role modelling, coaching, discussions in meetings or 'live' supervision.
You will have a highly experienced and supportive manager who draws on the strengths of kaimahi to create a safe, nurturing space for whaiora where they can realise their potential and reach their goals. The service aims to provide a safe, nurturing space where whaiora feel supported, and able, to live their best life. This is a permanent, full-time position working rostered shifts Monday to Sunday.
He kōrero mōu - About you
Sometimes faced with challenging behaviour you'll utilise your calmness to engage and empathise with whānau and be quick to think on your feet about how to deal with situations when whānau become unwell and are in need of support. You will need to be flexible and happy to pick up 'hands-on' duties.
Being able to demonstrate assertiveness, accountability and compassion for people and encourage them to change is really important to this role. The ability to coach and mentor staff and communicate effectively will also be beneficial.
You'll need the following:
Ko tā mātou mahi - We offer
In addition to driving change in your community, you'll be doing so in a national organisation with opportunities for you to grow and develop. 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 advocate for your wellbeing! With three days of wellbeing leave on offer, you can proactively manage your health and wellbeing.
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!
