Do you want to make a difference? We currently have a vacancy for a Key Worker in our More Independent Living project who will enable the people we support to live a full life. This is a full-time role, working 40 hours per week.
The people you will be supporting have intellectual disabilities and a range of other challenges. As a Key Worker, you are primarily there to be a role model; someone who can enable, encourage, educate and has emotional intelligence to guide people we support through informed decision making.
The More Independent Living (‘MIL’) project is a service for people who aspire to live independently. It includes a range of different living situations (shared housing, individual ‘chalets’, shared tenancies). People we support participate in a learning programme to help them develop skills and confidence.

Your skills, life experience and aptitude for the job are more important than any qualification. We provide certificated and on-the-job training, and ongoing support and feedback. Hōhepa provides 24 hour / 7 days a week support, enablement and care for children/tamariki, young people/rangatahi and adults. Our work is based on principles of inclusive social development (drawn from anthroposophy and the example of Rudolf Steiner). Hōhepa is a rewarding and positive place to work. We employ a diverse workforce and welcome applicants from all sections of the community.
