We are looking for enthusiastic Support Workers to join the team at Real People@Rowan, a residential service for people aged 16-65 that are living with a variety of disabilities. We create a warm family atmosphere that fosters adult choice, encourages independence, community participation, responsibility and self-determination.

We have two part-time vacancies (three days a week), and also need casual workers to cover staff on leave - planned and unplanned.

Knowledge of the healthcare sector and standards is desirable but not essential as full training will be given. You will be reliable, readily contactable, and be flexible to work across the three shifts (including weekends and public holidays). You will be given a comprehensive induction and orientation programme, and be partnered with a qualified staff member to develop the required skills and become confident in your role.

With a supportive work environment and an extensive range of training programmes, there are further opportunities to gain NZQA qualifications in the field of disability.

You should have a New Zealand residency or valid New Zealand work visa and ideally a full driver's licence.

For further info please email diana.macdonald@realpeople.gen.nz or call (06) 844 6139 Ext 1.

Applications close 29 May 2017.
