The Te Rito o Rehua team in Community Connections works with people who need support with daily life activities in Wellington. We are always on the lookout for people who want to help others and build a job that suits their lifestyle.

- You may be doing personal care including assistance with showering, toileting and dressing, as well as food preparation and household tasks
- Shifts range from early morning to dinner/bedtime, and are often short in length so can fit around your existing life
- There is opportunity for supporting people to attend work and social events, which may include overnight trips for holidays and time away on a negotiated basis.
What we need from you
- Be a people person, able to build trusting and respectful relationships
- Have an understanding of bi-cultural practice in Aotearoa New Zealand
- Be comfortable with technology – we have a cloud-based database and rostering system that staff need to access with their mobile devices
- Preferable (but not required) – have a full licence and/or your own transport
- Be physically fit to do manual handling (hoist use and/or lifting).
What you’ll get
- Pay rate is between $20.50 and $25.50 depending on qualifications and experience
- Loads of additional opportunities across our different teams
- Ongoing professional development
- Work with a bunch of great people
- Make people’s lives and the community better
