Addiction Assessor - Corrections / Ara Poutama

The Bay of Plenty Addiction Service is looking for a Registered Health Professional to join our team as an Addictions Assessor.

Based with Corrections, your main role will be completing brief triage assessments for referrals from our colleagues at probation, directing those clients into appropriate treatment services, and to provide brief interventions for those Whaiora who do not require more structured treatment.

We are looking for a team player, but also someone who is comfortable working autonomously. You will have sound clinical assessment skills, a strong background in addictions work and a good knowledge of the local addictions treatment sector. Although based with Corrections, you will be part of the wider addictions service and will have their support and resources to call on. This is a permanent full-time position.

Our values of Compassion, All-one-team, Responsiveness and Excellence are at the centre of everything we do. We are looking for someone who demonstrates, exudes and embeds behaviours consistent with our Manaakitanga values as well as the above skills and experience.

The BOPDHB are committed to improving Māori health outcomes and achieving health equity for Māori through Te Tiriti o Waitangi obligations. It is essential you demonstrate an awareness of Māori indigenous rights and current issues in relation to health and health equity.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Nick White – Clinical Team Leader, Addiction Services on 021 86 7747.

All applications are to be made online.
