Community Facilitator or Support Worker Private Advertiser location Bay of Plenty.

The organization ConneXu is a highly reputable charitable trust offering support to individuals with a disability. We strive to be innovative in the way we support people and to facilitate a good life for them. We are committed to empowering people to become active members of their community and we believe it is through this inclusiveness that our community will be strengthened. Join our team as we launch into an exciting stage of growth, expanding these support services into Tauranga and wider Bay of Plenty.

The role as a Community Facilitator, you will be trained to work within a number of diverse teams to be innovative to support and collaborate with the people we support, their family/whanau and others in their lives. This enables individuals to live as independently as possible, and to access their communities for activities and opportunities that are meaningful to them. A critical component of the Community Facilitator role is the ability to work within different teams to support the implementation of an individual's plans and goals and to ensure that supports meet their needs.

The person we are looking for people who are flexible, able to work weekends, evenings, sleepovers and on changing rosters. You will also have a passion for working in a team environment and in partnership with others. Ideally you will have some experience working with individuals who have an intellectual disability, autism or challenging behaviour, however, we are also open to talking to people who have a commitment to the community and a willingness to learn and be challenged.

You will need a full New Zealand driver's license, first aid certificate and be prepared to work flexible hours.  Computer literacy, attention to detail and the ability to work with others are essential, together with being creative and open to new ideas.
