Child and Family Practitioner - Mana Ake Services

As there is a strong clinical component to this role, we are looking for an experienced practitioner,  identified under the HPCA Act, with previous knowledge and skills to engage children/young people in schools. This involves providing mental health support that protects and promotes wellbeing of children and helps develop psychosocial and emotional resilience as a result of childhood stress and/or trauma.

The role provides quality assessment and clinical support to children/young people and their families and involves case planning reflecting holistic models, risk assessments, and behaviour management plans aligned to individual goals. 

If you are looking for flexibility (37.5 hrs per week) in an interesting but challenging role, we’d like to invite you to join the Barnardos host team working within the Mana Ake contract. The position is supported and coordinated by a designated practice and operational hub within a stimulating and innovative team environment.

 

To be successful in this role you will need to have:

  • Bachelors level qualification in a recognised health profession
  • professional understanding of the dynamics of trauma, attachment issues and impact on  young people
  • experience working with children/young people and families with complex needs
  • experience using a client management system
  • experience facilitating groups of both young people and adults
  • strong communication skills
  • a current clear NZ driver's licence, and

being registered with an appropriate professional body is desirable.
 

Barnardos is New Zealand’s leading children’s charity, doing more for Kiwi kids. Every year our services and people make a real and positive difference in the lives of thousands of children, young people and their families.  Through our collective commitment, talents and efforts we are working hard to create an Aotearoa New Zealand where every child has the opportunity to, in their own unique way, shine bright.

 

In everything we do, we are guided by the core principles of Ngā Pou e Whā – our vision for working with Māori.

 

This is your chance to make a real and positive difference for kiwi kids.

 

Applications close on 13th March 2019
