He kōrero mō mātou | About Us
Emerge Aotearoa is a committed Tangata Tiriti organisation and a national provider of mental health, addiction, disability, offender rehabilitation, well-being and housing services. The core values of the organisation are based on Māori concepts Whakawhanaunga, Manaakitanga, Ako and Whakamana.
At Emerge Aotearoa we are guided by our three Pou; Māori Succeeding as Māori, Lived Experience and Diversity are privileged and Thriving Pacific Peoples. We believe that everyone can live full and rich lives in their communities of choice, and we are committed to helping people be the best they can be.
Once you’re a part of the whanau, you’ll have the opportunity to work anywhere in the country developing your skills. There has never been a better time to join us as a Support Worker. We love what we do, the contribution we make and we’re proud of it.
He kōrero mō te tūranga | The Role
We have some exciting things happening in 2022 and are looking to get a jump start on finding some amazing people who are passionate about the work we do and are looking to make a difference in their community. We support youth and adults via either residential or community-based services.
Once you’re a part of the Emerge Aotearoa whanau, you’ll notice that all of our services are different. Our clients are different, and we design and develop delivery strategies to support them and their individual needs. These differences allow for amazing opportunities to grow and develop your career.
He kōrero mōu | About You
We’re looking for people who want to make a difference, have some life experience and have passion for the work we do. You’ll have a positive outlook, be patient and show some resilience, as well as empathy, initiative and a proactive approach.
You don’t need to have a qualification, but you’ll need to be willing to complete one with us. We support our permanent employees with gaining a qualification so, don’t let this be a deterrent.
We’re looking for someone with sound judgement and the skills to manage risk and make tough decisions. Some of our tāngata whaiora have experienced trauma, and you’ll need to have the ability to build rapport and assist in redirecting their behaviour.
We don’t have many prerequisites, but you will need to:
- Have a full, clean, valid driver’s licence
- Meet the Children’s Act safety checking and our vetting requirements
- Be flexible and able to work a variety of different shifts (mornings, evenings, weekends and public holidays)
