Residential Support Workers – Mental Health Services

Client support work at it’s most rewarding – manageable caseload, no wasted travel, great teamwork and truly pioneering programmes.

Connect Supporting Recovery is an established NGO providing recovery focused mental health care service throughout Auckland and Hamilton

A long, strong history of successful growth has resulted in 5 residential and respite facilities, several mobile community teams, assisted employment and housing agencies.  There is a mix of peer-led, non-peer, dual diagnosis and collaborative services, including a fledgling but vibrant social enterprise.

An opportunity currently exists for a full time Residential Support Worker at Abeo House. This Connect service is located in Birkdale, North Shore.

We’d love to hear from those who can comfortably demonstrate:

  • A client-centred, recovery focused approach.
  • Insight to know when and how to engage with Whanau.
  • Experience, instinct and decency to be appropriately culturally sensitive.
  • Mountains of empathy with a few peaks of resilience and firmness.
  • A full driver’s licence.
  • Level 4 National Certificate or Diploma in Mental Health Support.
  • A working knowledge of MS Office.

Applicants must share the teams’ deep belief in holistic, face-to-face, participative and highly inventive recovery based approaches.  A sense of fun, team spirit and openness will complement a fine balance of positivity and pragmatism.

Above all, we are looking for those who can embrace the breadth and variety of the role, which ranges from basic practical help to pioneering therapeutic support.

The role of Support Worker, we believe, is the key ingredient for successful client outcomes.  Consequently, we provide ample and on-going tools and encouragement to develop, grow and flourish in the role, striving to ensure an environment of learning, teamwork and enjoyment.

Please forward your CV and covering letter to June Ranyard, our Administrator at admin@connectsr.org.nz quoting reference RSWAH.

Closing date 6th October 2017

We look forward to working with you.
