Full-Time Support Workers – Kaiawhina Hauora

Whatever It Takes – Posted by Maori Pacific JobsWellington, Wellington, New Zealand


Job Description

  • Aim High and Make a Difference
  • Home and Community based care, Support and Rehabilitation.

Applications are highly sought for the Waikato and Wellington Regions, but there are also positions available in Auckland and the Northland.

Our client is a Kaupapa Māori service provider who apply a comprehensive support structure through their distinctive model to empower whānau and local communities to act as the facilitator as well the ‘fixer’ of services.

Due to recent growth, they are seeking to employ, support, train and retain a unique talent pool of skilled Support Coordinators to provide care and support to their most serious injury Clients (Traumatic Brain and Spinal Injury) and their whānau.

These roles are challenging and not for everyone.  It is more than just a “job” as you will become an integral part of the whānau over a long period of time.  Naturally, you will be passionate, integrity valued and an integral part of the team.

You will be open to adopting our clients values and join their mission to work in partnership with their clients affected by serious injury and their whānau members to empower them to achieve their unique goals of well-being by providing quality care and support in a safe and nurturing environment on their road to recovery and making life as close to normal as possible.

The people you will support require 24/7 complex, intensive care (including Attendant care, Home help, Child care, Rehabilitation support, Community connection) so you will be required to work rostered shifts.

Your role at times will be both challenging and emotionally charged, so you will need to tap into your kete of resilience and compassion but in return you will be rewarded with the knowledge you are making a real difference to the lives of their clients and their families.

Please feel free to register your interest if you:

  • Are intending on studying toward or possess a relevant qualification in the field of medical and/or social/health services.
  • Hold a current valid First Aid Certificate and have had previous experience working within the Health Sector.
  • Have an appreciation of tikanga Māori and the importance of whānau being actively involved in the decisions for their family member on their journey to recovery.
  • Have the ability to develop and establish effective relationships with clinicians, family members and relevant support networks and groups.
  • Hold a full, clean drivers licence.
  • Have a strong physical constitution and be comfortable with manual handling and lifting.
  • Have a clear Ministry of Justice check.
  • Ability to work rostered 24/7 shifts (including weekends)

Your passion for breaking down barriers that prevent people from living life to the fullest will be rewarded by full training, a competitive hourly rate and the opportunity to work within a supportive, value driven and collaborative team.
