There is only one purpose to our work;

It is the wellness and wellbeing of the people.

Interested in a role where you can make a real difference? We have an opportunity for you to use your people and administrative skills to help us achieve our mission of enabling people to live the life they choose.  We have a full-time permanent role and a full-time fixed term role to 4 February 2022.

Here at Life Unlimited our vision is Living Independence for Everyone (Life). We see it as our mission to enhance individual wellbeing by enabling people to live the life they choose.  Our work is underpinned by our core values:

• INTEGRITY • EXCELLENCE • ACCOUNTABILITY • LEADERSHIP • SOCIAL JUSTICE

We are a national organisation offering a variety of services that help people enhance their individual well-being. This position is within our Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) team and we work with people who have physical, intellectual and/or sensory impairments who are mostly under 65 years of age.

This team works in partnership with disabled people and their whanau to develop person centred and strengths-based support plans to meet their goals and disability related needs. We are committed to providing a working environment that embraces and values diversity and ensures a positive culture for people to work in.

In this position you will work cross functionally within our NASC team to ensure that high quality services are provided to our clients.  You will be responsible for managing supports for existing clients of all ages, including undertaking reassessments and liaison with a range of contracted providers. You will also be meeting with new clients and working with them and their whanau to identify strengths and needs to design new packages of disability supports.

These are busy roles with competing demands. Our successful candidate will understand the importance of meeting both client needs and performance targets. They will also have:

  • great people skills, with the ability to build effective relationships and work cross culturally
  • solid administrative and/or case management experience with practical report writing experience
  • well-developed problem-solving skills and high levels of personal integrity
  • a good understanding of the health and disability sector.

Many of our clients are Māori or Pasifika, and so we would welcome applicants who have the experience to make a difference in the lives of our clients’ whānau/aiga.  You may yourself be living with a disability and want to work in an environment that sustains your diversity, values your contribution and supports the unique part you play in our clients’ lives.
