Community Support Workers - Child, Youth & Respite

Spectrum Care is a leading provider of services for New Zealanders who live with disability. We have a wide range of casual, part-time and full-time roles available for people who want to help children and youth with disabilities to maximise their potential. We have sites and support options across the Auckland region and are on the look-out for passionate, committed people to work with us in our respite homes, providing support to an amazing bunch of children and young people.

Please note that some of the children we support go to school during the day and as such, this role may involve split shifts (early mornings/late afternoon and onward), in additional to weekend and sleepover shifts.

What do you need?

  • A Full New Zealand Driver's Licence
  • Experience supporting people with disabilities and/or challenging behaviours
  • The ability to communicate effectively with your colleagues and the people you support (including effective use of technology/computer skills)
  • The empathy and willingness to support people with their personal cares, such as bathing, dressing and toileting
  • To be fit enough for a moderately active role

What you'll get from us

  • A supportive and collaborative work environment
  • Development opportunities and continuing education
  • Pay rates based on Health and Wellbeing qualifications (or equivalent)
  • The opportunity to support people with disabilities to live great lives!

If you're interested in supporting children and young people to develop self-confidence and independence, and live their lives of choice, lives like any other, in their own communities, then we want to hear from you today!
