Permanent, Full Time, Manurewa

Our Youth Justice Residence 'Korowai Manaaki' provides a safe, secure and supportive environment where young people who have offended can make changes and get their lives back on track.

In addition to maintaining secure facilities, we aim to help rehabilitate young offenders. Case Leaders understand that the causes of offending are complex, and that successfully dealing with young offenders, demands action beyond simple punitive measures.

    The main responsibility for our Case Leaders is to ensure interventions, programmes and steps are put in place for tamariki and rangatahi.

    This may include leading the programme design and delivery of clinical and therapeutic intervention services, and is a great opportunity to use your knowledge of clinical practice and behavioural therapies to help deliver positive results.
