He kōrero mō te tūranga - The role
As a Youth Support Worker, you'll provide wrap-around support to Rangatahi which could be in a hands-on capacity in a service that has a whanau orientated framework.
You'll support with medication management and helping Rangatahi to be autonomous in themselves. You'll be resilient by nature and as this is a sole charge position, it's vital that you're able to work autonomously.
You'll be part of a supportive team with a manager who cares and wants to see you thrive in your role. An on-call manager will be available to you for support during rostered hours. You'll need to have a good level of computer skills to record notes and hand-over information.
This is a part-time permanent role working 20 hours per week between the hours of 10:30pm and 7:00am.
He kōrero mōu - About you
As youth can potentially only be with us for two to three days at a time, you'll need to have the ability to build relationships quickly in a genuine manner and have a passion to see youth succeed. You'll also have an eye for spotting changes to behaviour and be able to respond appropriately to crisis situations.
You'll contribute to maintaining a safe working environment and create safe, calm, and nurturing spaces for whānau. Communication skills and a strong cultural competency are vital for this role.
It's desirable that you have a Level 4 Health and Wellbeing Certificate (or equivalent/higher), and previous experience working with youth, however; your passion for supporting people is the most important thing.
