How would you like a career where you can make a life-changing difference in the lives of other people? Where you can help someone achieve what's important to them, and make everyday special?

We are looking for someone to join our teams in Orewa as a Support Worker. No one is too disabled to be supported in taking an active role in their life. Your role will be to help them gain that independence so that they can make their own choices, be part of their community, and live a fulfilling life.

What does the job involve?
• As a Support Worker you will be supporting people to grow their independence and learn skills for daily living (e.g. using public transport, getting a job, manage money, cook a meal).
• Depending on where you are working, be able to work on individual needs, supporting people with daily activities such as shopping, cleaning, showering and administering... medication.
• Helping people with their interests and hobbies (e.g. going to the park or beach, participating in sport, doing art and crafts).
• Supporting them to plan and achieve their goals and make decisions and choices.
• Making sure they can be part of a family and have relationships.
• Helping them stay healthy and make positive choices about their lifestyle.
• The position will be based at the Area Office reporting to the relevant Service Manager. Your specific locations of work within the area would be as directed by your Service Manager.
