Elizabeth Knox Home and Hospital is an Eden Alternative home transforming care for elders and younger people with physical disability. At Knox, plants, animals, children and meaningful activity are part of our daily life. Greater energy and optimism is our hallmark.
We are looking for exceptional people with curiosity, a warm heart and an innovative spirit. Like our residents who take every opportunity for continued growth and wellbeing, we expect our team to demonstrate a willingness to grow and learn every day.
We are looking for an exceptional person to fill an innovative and exciting role as our Lifestyle, Leisure and Community Engagement Leader on a fixed term position to cover parental leave.
Do you enjoy the company of elders and love hearing their stories? Are you looking to make a change this year and find a role with meaning? You don’t need to have aged care experience to make a difference at Knox, you may be a teacher or be in some other community-based role and ready to explore new opportunities. You will come with a variety of life experiences and skills to share with our residents. You will be practical, spontaneous and down to earth.
You will lead the Lifestyle and Leisure team to support and develop the wellbeing, independence and growth of each resident in the Knox community through providing meaningful activity both within and beyond Knox. A substantive knowledge of the contemporary Auckland community is vital. This role builds community engagement and cross-generational opportunities for elders and those younger living with physical disability at Knox.
In addition, you will grow the grant funding aspect of Knox through the development of strong and positive community relationships.
The Lifestyle, Leisure and Community Engagement Leader works in association with the Knox Volunteer coordination team to grow our strong and continuously expanding volunteer team, so a youthful approach is essential.
Applicants for this position must have New Zealand Residency or a valid New Zealand Work Visa.
