Our work is challenging with high risks, and high public expectations – but we are passionate about it. We’re always on the lookout for people who share our enthusiasm, can work at pace and enjoy customer service.

 

About the role

As a Case Manager you will support New Zealander’s into employment, training and development opportunities and enable access to social housing and financial support.

You are comfortable working in a fast paced, pressured environment and enjoy navigating through unexpected challenges.

 

What are the benefits of being a Case Manager?

The most significant benefit is being able to help people. It is an amazing feeling when you help someone get sorted financially; into work or ensuring support is there for someone who isn’t able to work.  

 

We offer:

  • Induction and on-going training
  • Supportive team environment
  • Regular coaching and development opportunities
  • Starting salary approx. $46,688k to $64,196k per annum (in line with your skills and experience).
