Come live and work in the fruit basket of New Zealand - work for Hōhepa Hawke’s bay! 

At Hōhepa we invest in you, we grow our people. You will have the opportunity to go through on the job training. Being a part of Hōhepa is being a part of a Whānau. Hōhepa is a therapeutic community based on the principles of Dr Rudolf Steiner.

We have vacancies available in our Harekeke Service.  The people we support have intellectual disabilities and a range of other challenges. This can be a challenging role, but also highly rewarding as you journey alongside people to support their development. You will have to use all your skills and ingenuity to help them enjoy and participate in our community. We are of the belief that they can do anything and can learn to be able and independent.

To be successful in this role you will:

  • Be able to work independently
  • Have the abilities to both display empathy and respect and enable people to achieve their goals and plans
  • Have good communication skills, be able to communicate clearly and appropriately with a range of people, and be able to maintain accurate records and progress notes.
  • Be trustworthy and have high ethical standards, and be able to respect confidentiality and privacy.
  • Have a mature attitude and good interpersonal skills; this includes being practical and 'down to earth' about the nature of the role, and being able to work with people who may have high support needs and challenging behaviour.
  • Be fit for the physical and emotional aspects of the role.
  • Be available to work split shifts and shifts on weekends.
  • Previous experience or training would be great, but your attitude and approach is far more important to us.
