  • Work directly with vulnerable children and families to support positive change
  • Experience in working with victims of family violence preferred
  • Be a part of our professional & supportive team

If you’ve been looking for a rewarding social work role with a focus on children, then you’ve found it.

We are looking for social workers to join our team in the suburbs of central & north Auckland.

In this role you’ll:

  • Work directly with vulnerable children and teens, and their whanau
  • Encourage positive and lasting change
  • Be a role model
  • Work with a caseload of families

The difference with this role is that you’ll become involved early on. You’ll work alongside the young people as they grow, and be a long-term positive influence.

You’ll need a recognized social work degree and full clean driver’s licence & reliable vehicle.   However, the most important thing you can bring is the genuine, heartfelt desire to help families build a positive future together.

In return for your skills, your knowledge, and your passion for your work, you’ll find plenty of team support, as well as opportunities for mentoring and development.

This is a full-time role and you must be available to work flexible hours, including evenings and weekends as and when required.
