About the Role:
Flexi-Permanent/Full Time/Part Time – This permanent position is designed to cover other support workers for leave and training. If you are flexible around the days you can work, this flexi-role might be what you’re looking for.

Community Care Trust (CCT) supports a diverse range of people with intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, youth, mental health, dual diagnosis, and people with a disability that have committed a criminal offence.
While having experience as a support worker in mental health, youth, or behaviour support is advantageous, don’t let limited experience put you off applying.
Life experience and the right attitude is most important to us. We will provide comprehensive training and support to get you up to speed, and if you complete a level 4 qualification you can earn $28.25 per hour.
What might a typical day look like, you ask? It depends on the person that you work with, but it could include helping them develop their confidence to get out into the community, achieve their goals, helping them with daily living tasks such as cooking and showering, or just being there to talk to and to foster positive social interactions.
Community Care Trust’s Vision is a world that truly values and celebrates diversity. We work in partnership with adults and youth across the South Island who need some support in their lives to achieve their goals. We work alongside people to ensure they live the life they want and achieve their dreams and aspirations as valued and contributing people within their community.
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.
Our organisation has a strong commitment to safeguarding children and any employees will be vetted to a level appropriate to the role for which they have applied.

- Hold a full current NZ DRIVER LICENCE
