Do you believe that disability should never be a barrier to quality life and living?

We are looking for support workers/caregivers to join our team, showing compassion and an attitude of excellence in care for adults with physical disabilities in our 35 bed (soon to be 40 bed) residential home in Karori.

Our Support Workers provide care for people with health and ability needs, including:

  • Helping residents with daily activities, such as getting up, washing, dressing, getting ready for bed
  • Ensuring residents are ready for activities/appointments
  • Working in a team, directed by the Registered Nurse, to ensure all healthcare needs are met
  • Supporting residents to have an active and fulfilling lifestyle – from goal-setting through to achieving those dreams

If you want to be part of a great team supporting people with high physical needs, then we would like to hear from you. To be considered for the role you will need:

  • A positive ‘can do’ attitude
  • A passion for ensuring excellence in resident-centred care
  • Excellent communication skills
  • The right to work in New Zealand (e.g. citizenship/residency) and preferably have a driver’s licence

In return we offer:

  • A competitive pay/benefits package backed by the national pay-equity system
  • On-the-job training in health and well-being for career advancement (Level 2-4 qualifications)
  • Opportunities for further training in specialised areas such as palliative care, infection control, health and safety etc.

We have vacancies for Support Workers to join our team of casuals and a permanent part-time role consisting of 32 - 48 hours per fortnight – with the option to pick up extra shifts on an “as-required” basis.

Closing date for applications is 5pm, 25 November 2019.
