CCT is a longstanding organisation with our roots in Otago and Southland, and more recently North Otago & Canterbury, 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.  

We are currently looking for Full Time and Part Time support workers to join our Supportive Living team (which can include nights/sleepovers and weekend shifts) working within the Invercargill district.

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. 

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

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 Invercargill district, so please apply now.

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

Go ahead and apply now.  We can fill you in about what makes us unique at an interview or holler if you have any questions by contacting one of the People and Capability team at recruit@cct.org.nz or call 0800 800 001 and ask for David or Frankie.
