Contractors, North and South Island Locations

Mapu Maia has received a 2-year contract to provide clinical support to Pacific and non-Pacific people who are survivors of abuse and trauma in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

This work will also require supporting people during public court hearings based in Auckland.

We are looking for registered and qualified counsellors or social workers who are available through a sub-contract arrangement.  Hours per week will vary depending on your availability.  This work will be suitable for those who are part time workers, semi-retired, studying part-time or self-employed contractors.  The work is across the main centres in NZ and may require overnight stays in Auckland in some cases.

We offer a competitive sub-contract rate per session and daily rate for public hearings. This is a great opportunity to work alongside our dynamic clinical team.
