Victim Support is a national organisation working to strengthen the mana, belonging and wellbeing of people affected by crime, trauma and suicide in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Working with us would mean being able to make a tangible difference to your community, and to the lives of people who have experienced crime or trauma.

We are now seeking to hire a full time Support Worker for our Auckland office working across five days a week. A Social Services relevant qualification would be a significant advantage. We are looking for someone with excellent communication skills, incredible empathy, and the ability to work as a member of a team.

As a Support Worker, you will work closely with victims of crimes and trauma, building relationships with a broad range of people and supporting and empowering victims to be safe, heal, and participate at every step of their journey. This work is incredibly varied, no two cases are the same. You will make a difference to people at the most difficult moments in their lives. 

This is an outstanding opportunity for you to make a real difference in your community. If you can answer “Yes” to the following questions, this may be your new opportunity:

  • Are you energetic with a passion for assisting people in your community?
  • Are you culturally sensitive and able to work with people from different ethnic groups?
  • Are you an amazing relationship builder, and ready to work closely with our external stakeholders?
  • Do you have experience in problem solving and delivering an outstanding service to clients under pressure?
  • Are you able to work closely with a team, yet also work independently and self-manage your own case load?
  • Do you have a full licence and access to transport?

You will be required to undergo pre-employment vetting by the NZ Police. Applicants for this position must hold NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
