  • A warm and friendly personality, a reasonable level of physical fitness, and the desire to help others are the main requirements. 
  • People who are resilient and thrive on working in an environment where the support they provide can enable young people with disabilities to achieve positive outcomes for themselves.
  • You will need a full New Zealand Drivers’ Licence and the ability to drive a manual vehicle as our staff transport the people we support in our disability vans. 
  • The right to work in NZ is essential. 
  • All staff are required to undergo a satisfactory Police Check and CYFS Check.
