Connecting Communities Wairarapa provides an inclusive and accessible workplace where the contribution of each team member is respected and valued. We provide a work environment in which individual diversity is recognised and all team members have equal opportunities to fulfil their potential.
Social Services Coordinator
We are seeking a well-organised, empathetic people-person. We need someone who is solutions-focused, process-driven and a fabulous facilitator. A background in education or social support is helpful, as is knowledge of local and national support agencies. We need someone who is computer savvy and comfortable working with online databases. An understanding of Te Ao Māori is important and the ability to speak te reo Māori a real advantage.
The role is part of our social services team, primarily as a financial mentor for our Building Financial Capabilities programme. This will involve one-on-one client appointments, as well as group facilitation. We will provide you with comprehensive training, so we don’t expect you to be an expert right now – but you do need to be keen to learn.
Please email Rachel Hansen, General Manager your CV and cover letter [email protected] by Friday 15th January.
Note that applications will be considered as they arrive and an appointment may be made earlier than Jan 15th. This role is advertised as full time, but there is flexibility for the right person/people.
