We are a small-scale, not-for-profit, family-driven initiative on a beautiful five-acre lifestyle property in Lower Hutt. We provide a residential home and long-term supported care for three men with intellectual disabilities. The men are much loved family members and are surrounded by a supportive community with a strong ethos of enablement, collaboration, personal growth and sustainability. In the role of Manager you will be leading a small team to support the men to lead healthy, meaningful, and fulfilling lives in their home and in the wider community.
We have relationships with other individuals and organizations which support people with disabilities and the Manager’s role also includes liaison with them about sharing our facilities for their workshops, courses and activities such as art, music, drama, dance and gardening.
Your responsibilities will include:

Hours of Work
- Part time/full time
- The management position is part time but depending on how many support hours the Manager takes on, there is the possibility for full time work at the Trust.
- It is expected that the management role will take on average 10 hours a week for ongoing operations, but that additional time will be required throughout the year for organizing special events and projects or at times when new staff are being recruited and trained.
- $30 per hour for management hours and $27 per hour for support hours
Note: Because this is a new position, the Manager and trustees will undertake ongoing review of the duties of the Manager role and the hours allocated to it, with the possibility of changes in the future. The person appointed to the Manager position will therefore need to be flexible and willing to work collaboratively with the trustees to refine the details of the role.
