Social Services Accreditation Assessor – Wellington


  • Experienced in social service provision
  • Enthusiastic about quality improvement
  • Supportive environment


About the Role


You will be part of an SSA team accrediting a wide range of social service providers. 


You will use your experience in quality assurance from across government settings, auditing skills, or knowledge of social service delivery, to provide surety to government agencies that the providers they engage with have the capability to deliver safe, quality services.


You will hold a portfolio of providers and work autonomously to achieve your personal targets.  You will also contribute to the broader goals of the other accreditation teams.  


Skills & Experience


You will be confident and revel in managing varied and sometimes challenging relationships with providers and other key stakeholders.  This will draw on your cultural awareness, communication and relationship management skills.  You will hold a full current driver's licence and travel frequently.


If you think you have the skillset and experience to enjoy this role, we would like to hear from you. 


About the Team


Our teams are responsible for providing government and communities with independent assurance that social service providers can deliver safe, quality services to New Zealanders.


We are passionate about the work we do and pride ourselves on delivering exceptional accreditation services.
