Casual Resource Workers – Auckland Region

 

(As and when required for short or block assignments)

 

We are a new Ministry committed to putting children and young people at the heart of everything we do and say.

 

We are seeking casual children's workers in the Auckland area to provide transporting and support services to Tamariki and Rangatahi.  The key tasks would include driving, minding tracking, escorting, mentoring and providing supervised access for children and young people.

 

The duties include:

  • Transporting of children and young people to and from school,  activities or appointments
  • Minding children and young people when they are not with their whanau
  • Tracking  and monitoring of children and young people who are deemed at risk
  • Escorting (with a social worker) young people to Court, appointments and residential placements
  • Mentoring, one on one work with children and young people, assisting them to achieve specific goals
  • Supervising their access with parents, whanau and/or siblings, and writing observational reports

 

Generally, the hours you would be scheduled to work will be between 7.30am – 7.30pm Monday to Sunday with the flexibility to work outside these hours occasionally. You don't need to be available for the entire period of time but you need to have flexibility and able to work on short notice for majority of the time.

 

The hourly rate of pay for this position is $18.00 including holiday pay.

 

We are looking for people who are able to work well with children and young people in a caring and responsible way.

 

You will need to have a full, clean, NZ driver's licence and the ability to remain calm under pressure.

 

As this role works with children and young people you will need to be able to pass police vetting and safety checks (The Clean Slate Act does not apply).

 

If you want to help improve the lives of vulnerable Tamariki and rangatahi please apply on line with your CV and cover letter.  Only applications made on line will be accepted.

 

Application closing date : Friday the 8th of June 2018
