Do you love mental health and addictions work? Passionate about making a difference within Maori and Pacific communities?
It is a rare opportunity in the mental health and addiction field to be part of the fence at the top of the cliff as well as providing whanau support services for those already experiencing harm from the impacts of problem gambling and other co-existing issues.
We are a dynamic team that incorporates a holistic approach to minimising harm to communities. The Foundation is committed to delivering culturally appropriate programmes with individuals, family members, groups and wider whanau. In addition, we have the flexibility to support any counselling modality that promotes client engagement and motivation.
This flexibility gives us the scope to find an employee from a wide range of tertiary training backgrounds such as social work, psychology, counselling and/or addictions.
This position also requires self-motivation and the ability to work autonomously and cross-culturally. An understanding of, and passion in, community development and/or health promotion is required. A sense of humour is absolutely non-negotiable.
This is an exciting and challenging position offering both personal development and an opportunity to make a real difference in our priority communities.
