The service and role
This is a fantastic opportunity to have a direct impact on the lives of rangatahi who are currently on community placement - this means rangatahi who are currently, or have been going through the court process.
In this role you will join a diverse team of residential staff to support rangatahi to engage and reconnect with their local community and cultural groups. You will walk alongside young people to overcome challenges they face in society, through the courts, police and their own personal trauma.
We aim to create healthy habits in order to help youth go on to achieve great things in the community as they journey into adulthood, becoming more aware of who they are. We prioritise empathy and understanding and provide support in self-care, awareness and advocacy.
We want to encourage our youth to learn, grow and live as independently as possible with the aim reducing the risk of re-offending. One on one or group activities, you will be maintaining professional boundaries, safety and consistency of practice for youth through honesty, integrity and a commitment to goals.
We have a number of roles available working full-time, part-time or casual. Please indicate your preference in your cover letter.
