Full-time, part-time and casual Support Workers and Curative Education Support Workers

Hohepa is a therapeutic community based on the work of Dr Rudolf Steiner. Hohepa Kapiti is a small service which opened 2015 at a beautiful rural location in the Paraparaumu area, building on the experiences and success of Hohepa Hawke’s Bay. We’re recruiting for staff for a brand new house supporting younger people

Various permanent vacancies are available, working during the day (including morning and evening work - on weekdays and weekends), and waking night shift (Wake Over). Full time and part time positions are available. We’re also looking for casuals - people who can work occasionally, maybe at short notice, but with no fixed hours. (Full training and support is provided.) Work may be available on weekdays, weekends and night shifts. This is an ideal role if you don’t want to take on something permanent.

For all these roles, some experience or training would be great; but your attitude and approach is far more important to us and full training and support is given. We require applicants with a mature approach, who can cope with the mental and physical demands of this role which can be challenging but also highly rewarding as you journey alongside young people and adults to support their development.

To be successful in this role you will have a keen interest in working with people with intellectual disabilities, displaying empathy and respect, and the ability to ENABLE people to achieve their goals and plans. You will be assisting residents in their lovely houses, as well as supporting recreation activities such as drumming, walking and cycling. You will hold a full, clean drivers' licence and have the flexibility to work up to 40hrs per week (including a weekend shift); the hours will range from 6.30am to 10pm.

We welcome applications from people with some knowledge or experience of anthroposophy, social therapy, biodynamic gardening and curative education, who are prepared to train and mentor staff in the principles and practices of Rudolf Steiner. To apply for the Curative Education Support Worker role you will need some experience in an organisation based on the work of Rudolf Steiner, and hold a relevant qualification.

The casual role is ideal if you can be available for work, possibly at short notice or to cover absences, but do not wish to take on a permanent role.

 What do you need?

  • Have a keen interest in working with people with intellectual disabilities, displaying empathy and respect, and the ability to ENABLE residents to achieve their goals and plans.
  • Have good communication skills, able to communicate clearly and appropriately with a range of people, and to maintain accurate records and progress notes.
  • Be willing and able to work within Hohepa's values and practices.
  • Be trustworthy and have high ethical standards, 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 without becoming flustered.
  • Be drug free, prepared not to smoke during work hours and willing to declare any convictions.
  • Be fit for the physical and emotional aspects of the role.
  • Computer familiarity an advantage.
  • Cooking and gardening are desirable
  • Hold a valid OPEN work visa (not employer specific) that is valid for at least 1 year from the date of your application.

Your skills and aptitude for the job are more important than any qualification. We provide certificated and on-the-job training. Ideally, successful candidates will spend time, as part of their induction, experiencing the Hohepa Hawkes Bay service.

Varied work arrangements are available.
