Job Description

Employment Coordinator – Hawera

Permanent, Full Time
Job ID # 29519


The Employment Coordinator role assists Ministry clients who experience ill health or with disabilities to find, and remain in, suitable and sustainable employment. One of the ways they do this is by working effectively with external agencies that provide employment support services and health related interventions. 

We are looking for an individual who can demonstrate knowledge of issues faced by people with ill health or disabled people when considering employment, and experience in identifying services, products and support networks available to this client group. 


Skills and attributes

The Employment Coordinator is a highly client-centric role; therefore a strong, genuine, customer focus is essential.  You will thrive on initiating and building relationships and networks, internally and externally.  This role has a promotional/marketing focus; therefore the confidence to market individuals to employers is important.

We are looking for someone who has:

  • Experience working with people within the health and disability sector (preferable but not essential)
  • Strong relationship management skills
  • Ability to influence and focus on the client's strengths and what they're capable of achieving
  • An understanding of the regional and local labour market
  • The ability to broker employment opportunities for clients
  • A commitment to achieving outcomes and goals
  • Sound judgement and problem solving skills, with the ability to “think outside the square”
  • Strong communication and empathetic skills


This is a busy role, and needs solid planning and organisational skill and a responsive and proactive approach.

Remuneration for this role is from $46,688 to $64,196 (Range D).  Application along this salary scale is dependent on relevant work experience and evidenced skills.
