The Ministry of Social Development is seeking expressions of interest for the position of Community Representative on the local Benefits Review Committee for Central Region.

We are looking for Community Representatives in the following locations:

  • Horowhenua
  • Dannevirke
  • Kapiti
  • Masterton
  • Palmerston North

The Benefits Review Committee (BCR) provides an informal setting for clients to review decisions made by the Ministry of Social Development about their benefit entitlement. As a Community Representative you will provide a community perspective to the decision making process. You will be required to read benefit review reports, attend hearings arranged for the client and Ministry staff, and consider decisions on a case by case basis. Hearings are scheduled to be held at least fortnightly, however as there is a pool of Community Representatives in each region, individual Community Representatives may not be required to sit on every hearing.

In this role you will need to be able to relate to a range of people within the wider community, have good community experience and knowledge, and respect the views, beliefs and cultural perspectives of others.

This is a Ministerial appointment. Names of successful candidates will be forwarded for consideration to the Minister for Social Development.

Please apply online with your CV and cover letter via the ‘apply' button. All applications must be made online. In your cover letter please outline the locations you would like to be considered for.

Applications close: Wednesday 28 March 2018 at 10.00pm
