Community Facilitator – Permanent and casual roles
- Supportive work environment.
- Highly rewarding career.
- Based in the Bay of Plenty region.
- Join us in an exciting growth phase.
ConneXu is a highly reputable charitable trust offering support to individuals with a disability. We strive to be innovative in the way we support people and to facilitate a good life for them. We are committed to empowering people to become active members of their community and we believe it is through this inclusiveness that our community will be strengthened. Join our team as we launch into an exciting stage of growth, expanding these support services into the Bay of Plenty and the wider Waikato area.
As a Community Facilitator, you will be trained to work within a number of diverse teams to be innovative to support and collaborate with the people we support, their family/whanau and others in their lives. This enables individuals to live as independently as possible, and to access their communities for activities and opportunities that are meaningful to them. A critical component of the Community Facilitator role is the ability to work within different teams to support the implementation of an individual’s plans and goals, and to ensure that supports meet their needs.
We are looking for people who are flexible, able to work weekends, evenings, sleepovers and on changing rosters. You will also have a passion for working in a team environment and in partnership with others. Ideally you will have some experience working with individuals who have an intellectual disability, autism or challenging behavior, however we are also open to talking to people who have a commitment to community and a willingness to learn and be challenged. You will need a full New Zealand driver’s license, first aid certificate and be prepared to work flexible hours, including weekends and sleepovers. Computer literacy, attention to detail and the ability to work with others is essential, together with being creative and open to new ideas.
If you are interested in a challenging and diverse role, have a passion for people and want to work in an environment where you will be developed, then we would love to hear from you.
