  • Description


    My name is Keegan and I am looking at adding new assistants to join me, providing me support. There are a range of hours available so your position could be part-time or full time.

    I am particularly looking for someone interested in setting up my lifestyle plans and who may consider living-in on a rural property (North of Paeroa).

    Are you passionate about supporting someone who needs assistance in order to connect with others and be part of society? Are you great at communicating and are you sensitive to others' needs? Do you have skills which could contribute to setting up a system of support (admin, organisational, ...)?

    Duties include: all aspects of everyday life, organising my activities and helping me lead a super life!

    Be prepared for something new, different: my team is self-managed, with emphasis on life balance, wellbeing and solution focused.

    On offer:
    • a position with room for lots of initiative
    • training opportunities for further development
    • family, cozy environment

    Skills I am looking for:
    • Honesty, reliability, punctuality
    • Ability to create a rapport with someone with complex needs
    • Initiative and organisational skills
    • Empathy and nurturing personality, with a sense of humour

    I am a musician so I would love to hear from you if you are one too!

    Minimum stay: 1 year.
