MidCentral actively seeks Māori into our workforce to reflect the community we serve.

If you are looking for a challenge, then look no further!

We have a great opportunity available for a practitioner with CAMHS experience.

Alongside the newly appointed Brief Intervention Worker, this role is one of a team of 4 who work at the front end of CAFS ensuring children, young people and their families have a smooth and supportive introduction into our service and receive compassionate and appropriate care when experiencing a mental health crisis.

For this role we require someone preferably with experience in CAFS, but with experience in mental health and crisis work. Someone who can engage people and make people feel at ease in their presence.

For this role we need someone who can work autonomously and is a team player, who is flexible, strong in who they are and willing to share and to learn along the way. Sense of humour an absolute must and the ability to enjoy our team.

In return we can offer:
• A truly amazing and authentic team who support and enjoy each other’s company (mostly!)
• Great opportunities for clinical growth and development
• A supportive workplace, that recognises the value of the work we do with children and young people
• A smashing community that works hard to ensure our young people and their families reach their potential

Our City and Region

Our vibrant and diverse City isn’t huge but it packs a powerful social experience if that’s what you are looking for. Its not next to the sea or the beach, but its pretty close (25 mins) and they are wild and wonderful. It has awesome walks/bike tracks and more importantly the people are what makes it a fabulous place to be – both in the community and especially within our Service.

There is lots to do locally or with its central location it is easy to get away for the weekend to all the major attractions of Lower North Island - 2 hours drive away from the vibrant capital of Wellington (via the newly opened Transmission Gully road), the wineries of Hawkes’ Bay, the ski fields of Ruapehu and much more!

Ring me, come for a visit (ZOOM or physically) and allow us to share our awesomeness with you.

If you think this is you then call us now Bev Huttley, Clinical Manager CAFS on 0275468828 or Nathan Stevenson, Clinical Coordinator on 027 267 6094.
