Join a uniquely pioneering, refreshingly holistic, MSD-funded service to work smartly alongside a small number of Jobseeker Support Clients with complex needs and multiple obstacles to benefit independence.
This is a truly enlightened approach to social welfare delivery and although brand new, it will actually feel exactly like the work you always dreamed of being able to carry out.
Become part of a gentle but powerfully effective revolution…
Connect Supporting Recovery is a progressive and reliable NGO providing recovery focused health and community services throughout the North Island, with $10million-plus revenues, 170 staff and deep-veined values.
The total mix of services includes mobile, residential, respite, peer, clinical, youth, family, employment and housing support. Two small but spirited social enterprises focus on effective earlier interventions.
We are currently recruiting small, multi-faceted teams in Kaitaia, Whangarei, Henderson, Tamaki, Papakura, Hamilton, Tokoroa, Rotorua and Whakatane.
Reporting to an experienced Team Manager, individuals must be comfortable collaborating in physical and virtual multi-disciplinary teams, working independently and contracting support as required.
Although gentle in nature, this delivery revolution will achieve ambitious, powerful and long-lasting outcomes for service users:
• Improved education.
• Improved mental health.
• Improved physical health.
• Improved motivation towards employment.
• Improved connectedness.
• Improved employment and financial outlook.
We welcome applications from all those who share our passion, excitement and determination to use their knowledge, local networks and experience to provide an intensive yet wholesome, tailored and deeply effective service.
A background in mental health, social work, counselling, occupational therapy, employment support or equivalent is essential, together with the ability to build and maintain strong relationships across a wide range of stakeholders.
Applicants must hold a full driver’s license. A Certificate in Health and Wellbeing or similar qualification would be advantageous.
A positive attitude, sound problem-solving skills and a resilient, gently tenacious nature will be required. As will a love of diversity, inclusion and hope.
Connect Supporting Recovery is values based, originative, maybe even slightly quirky. We will do whatever it takes to give you the right balance of autonomy, support, development, encouragement and aroha.
