CCT is a longstanding organisation with our roots in Otago and Southland, with recent expansion into North Otago, Canterbury and most recently Nelson, with a reputation for ‘walking the talk.’ We have been providing support to people for a long time, but always bring a fresh and innovative approach to all that we do!  Our team are an integral part of the magic, and bring a forward-thinking, collaborative approach with a strong desire to make a difference.  This is support work – but probably not as you know it.  


You will be supporting people in their homes encouraging them to meet others, assisting them to achieve new goals, building new skills, and supporting them to have a better link to their community.

Our work is varied, as we partner with a range of people including people with an intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, youth, dual diagnosis, and people with a disability that have committed a criminal offence. 

On the job training will be given to ensure you understand and love your role, and we will support you to complete a level 3 Health & Wellbeing qualification, opening opportunities for pay increases and further growth and development.

If this sounds like you, we would love to meet you and chat about what you would bring to this role.

We operate a 7-day service and we require employees that are able to work evening, weekend shifts.

If this sounds like you and you want to be part of the supportive, professional and fun team, we would like to talk with you about employment with the Community Care Trust (CCT) covering the Christchurch district.

An immediate start is preferred, but willing to work with you on the commencement timeframe.
