Closing Date : 22 Jul 2019
Utilise your skills and experience to support people into a home
We want experienced, qualified people to join our vibrant kaimahi team. Based at DCM in central Wellington you will be working with a range of services who contribute to the new Housing First initiative. You will be willing to roll your sleeves up and do whatever tasks are required to support people who are homelessness to secure accommodation and make a home. You will work with them to access and sustain housing and journey to greater wellbeing.
You will have a relevant qualification in social work, mental health or drug and alcohol studies, great rapport building skills, be non-judgmental, highly organised and a good team player. A demonstrated knowledge and understanding of Tikanga Māori is essential and proven relevant experience would be an advantage. People with lived experience of mental health, drug, alcohol issues or homelessness are encouraged to apply.
For 50 years, Downtown Community Ministry (DCM) has worked on some of the biggest problems facing Wellington city, supporting the most marginalised people in our city to break the cycle of homelessness, and to find recovery, wholeness and reconnection with their cultural roots and whanau. We have a proven track record of assisting people to put their lives back together.
