ABOUT THE ROLE:

We are looking for support workers that are keen to support and make positive changes to the Youth we support in our community?

We are currently looking for experienced, calm and compassionate support workers within our Youth Service. Ideally someone who has experience working alongside and building understanding with young people who experience significant obstacles in their daily living, which at times is expressed in behaviour that can be challenging. 

If this sounds like you, we would like to talk with you about employment with the Community Care Trust (CCT) in the Dunedin area, so please apply now.

This position may suit someone with a level 4 qualification or relevant experience. We will provide you with comprehensive training and support to get you up to speed, and with the right training you can earn up to $28.25 per hour. 

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

ABOUT CCT:

Community Care Trust (CCT) is a longstanding community support organisation with our roots in Otago and Southland (and recent expansion into the Canterbury region) with a reputation for ‘walking the talk.’ 

We have been providing support to people for over 26 years, 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.
