He aha te tūnga | About the role
This is a new role that will support our latest initiative, the Community Hub. We’re looking for an engaged and well networked member of the hāpori, someone who enjoys being a whānau champion, supporting and advocating for whānau during difficult times. What sets you apart from others is your ability to walk in the shoes of the whānau you serve, all whilst providing quality wraparound care and support, to improve their overall wellbeing.
Your whānau centric approach coupled with your ability to enhance the mana of the people around you, will enable you to build trusting relationships with not only whānau, but our stakeholders and kaimahi too. Your experience helping our most vulnerable whānau, will enable you to hit the ground running, so you can get straight into the meaningful mahi that fills your cup, such as assessing whānau needs, making referrals as appropriate, and creating and implementing whānau ora plans.

So you can hit the ground running, we’d expect you to bring a few things to the table such as:
- Proven established networks within the community including the vulnerable and homeless
- Experience working with whānau to achieve their whānau plans using mixed mode consultations
- Exceptional relationships with local external stakeholders
- Strong administration background and is familiar with industry ethics, organisational policies, and processes.
