Job Description

He kōrero mō te tūranga - The role

This role allows you to contribute to community well-being while you work alongside tangata whaiora moving through the Corrections system. As part of a team you will create an environment which supports tangata whaiora to achieve planned goals increasing their potential to successfully re-integrate back into the community.

We provide mixed accommodation and the house is staffed 24/7 with rostered shifts, so flexibility is required. Shifts include 7am - 3.30pm, 3pm - 11.30pm and 11pm - 7.30am.

This role may appeal to you if you are currently studying, looking at reentering the workforce or wanting part-time hours. We offer flexibility and this role can be carried out in a full-time or part-time capacity.

He kōrero mōu - About you

A positive attitude and willingness to share your experience and actively seek out knowledge in accommodation, well-being, community support, education and training, employment and skills for life is highly desirable. Everyday has variety but some shifts are slower so being self-motivated, energetic and having a sense of fun goes a long way in making this role your own. You'll be a people person who is comfortable working with all ages, personalities and cultures. Each new day can bring new challenges. Hand on heart, you need to say you are capable of providing structure and consistency while being compassionate, open minded and flexible.

In addition, you must have:

  • a New Zealand driver's licence
  • a mental health level 4 qualification or above (or equivalent), or experience working in the mental health/AOD addiction sector
  • effective, appropriate and engaging communication, both written and verbal, using strength-based language
  • the ability to see potential in people and thrive in a challenging and ever-changing environment
  • strong professional boundaries.

Ko tā mātou mahi - We offer

In addition to being key to the delivery of our service, 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. This role offers great job satisfaction - you'll be improving someone's quality of life by helping them to realise their potential.

Read and follow the instructions on how to apply for this job. We do not accept applications on behalf of the employer. Only contact the employer if you have questions that are not specified in the job description.
