Full-time and Part-time Positions Available

ABOUT THE ROLE:
We are looking for support workers that are keen to make positive changes to the tamariki and rangatahi we support in our community.
We are currently looking for experienced, calm and compassionate support workers within our Youth Service. It would be ideal if the candidate(s) had experience working alongside and building trust and understanding with young people. The young people we support may experience significant obstacles in their lives, which at times is expressed in complex behaviours.
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 we are willing to work with you on the commencement timeframe.
Community Care Trust’s Vision is a world that truly values and celebrates diversity. We work in partnership with adults and youth across Te Waipounamu (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.
HOW TO APPLY:
