Are you looking for more than just a job? For an employer who values you and will assist you to develop both personally and professionally?

At Framework we value our employees and therefore offer a range of benefits as well as the resources required to ensure you are able to perform at your best;

  • Varied training opportunities for personal and professional growth including internal individualised support to undergo qualifications.
  • A shared Framework vehicle and mobile phone are available for work related purposes.
  • A comprehensive wellbeing programme that includes flu vaccinations, diabetes checks and access to an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP).

We are looking for individuals to join our committed team in the field of Intellectual/Dual Disability with High and Complex needs.

Experience working with Intellectual Disability and complex behavioral needs is an advantage, as is having an understanding of what “Life Skills and Day Services” aim to achieve.

However, as you will be supporting extremely challenging clients, having superb people skills, the right attitude, negotiation and problem solving skills and a willingness to learn are necessary qualities to be successful in the role.

Casuals are expected to provide support to clients in the community. The support can be provided on an individual basis (1:1) or with a group of clients (1:2, 1:3 and 1:4).

Our wonderful pool of Casual employees support our permanent employees with programme facilitation but generally do not design or run programmes.

Although we cannot guarantee any number of hours for Causal positions, on any given day we need between five and eight casual employees to maintain our client to support worker ratios. Casuals also fill in for our permanent members of staff when they are sick or on annual leave.

The goal of our service is to provide clients with a sense of identity, self confidence and practical skills to lead successful lives within the community of their choice.

Essential Criteria:

  • Excellent communication skills both written and verbal
  • The right attitude and a willingness to learn
  • Superb people skills, negotiation and problem solving skills
  • Good computer skills in Microsoft Word and Outlook
  • A commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi and culturally safe practice
  • A current clean Full Drivers Licence
  • Eligibility to work in New Zealand

Desirable criteria:

  • Experience working with Intellectual Disability and complex behavioral needs and having an understanding of what “Life Skills and Day Services” aim to achieve.
  • Supporting/training or teaching and aiding clients in achieving their goals.
  • A Certificate/Diploma in Mental Health/Health and Wellbeing or an appropriate qualification.
