Community Alcohol and Other Drug Clinician

Are you ready to wow us with your counselling skills and experience?  We'd love to hear from you!

This role includes a fabulous mix of group facilitation, brief and comprehensive assessments, case management and 1:1 work. You'll also work alongside stakeholders to provide treatment advice and reports.  You'll love the variety in this role - you will be working in community settings, such as at probation sites, the Justice Precinct, and sometimes at the prisons.  This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a shared initiative within the wider AOD sector.

This is a 30 hour per week position with the actual hours and days of work to be negotiated with you.  A small amount of evening work is required.   We will negotiate  competitive rate of pay with you, and will work with you to agree on a start date.

Our ideal appointee will hold a health professional qualification (such as Social Work, Nursing, or an AOD qualification) and will have experience in AOD and/or mental health work.  The ability to be assertive and non-judgemental, to work with situations of conflict and crisis, to have a sense of compassion and the ability to relate to people of all walks of life, are ‘musts’ in this role.  You will require excellent organisational skills and to enjoy being part of an active, fun and supportive team.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday 30 November 2018.  For an application pack, please contact Bex, vacancy@citymission.org.nz, 03 365 0635 or for further information regarding the position contact Jan Spence 027 522 1156 jan@citymission.org.nz
