Employment Consultant | Kaiāwhina Rapu Mahi

  • Wellington, NZ, Wellington, New Zealand
  • Full Time

At APM, we are all about growth and new opportunities.  We’ve got a mission – to enable better lives.  Right now, we are on the hunt for the right people to join the team and grow along with us on the journey. 

Due to expansion of our services, we have a new vacancy based in Wellington.  Travel within the wider region is required for this role and a company vehicle will be provided. 

Support customers on their individual journeys towards work and independence.

It’s a job like no other!  You will support a variety of job seekers, including school leavers and those with health conditions and/or disabilities to gain meaningful, long-term employment.  Your day will be filled with: 

  • Getting to know your caseload of jobseekers, understanding their stories, and fostering trust so that you can effectively help them gain mahi aligned with their goals, experience and strengths.
  • Helping jobseekers upskill by identifying training needs for their chosen industry/sector, and liaising with training providers to gain short course certification
  • Facilitating access to well-being/health/ disability community providers (including APM’s own network of Allied Health professionals) so that our customers are well-supported in their transition into the world of work
  • Creating meaningful connections with local employers and businesses, government & industry/sector partners, disability support and other providers to seize golden work opportunities for our jobseekers

Our Employment Consultants are selected from a wide range of careers -- including recruitment, social services, sales, business development, government and industry. Life skills, enthusiasm to help people, grit & resilience, and the ability to bring the best out of people are key attributes we look for.

You will need to be self-driven, even entrepreneurial in your approach, and be comfortable working autonomously.  Experience or understanding of the Mental Health and Disability sector would be advantageous, as would knowledge of the challenges the post-COVID19 landscape presents from both jobseekers’ and employers’ perspectives.

Benefits and Culture:
You will be rewarded with an attractive salary, a company car, laptop and personal use of smart phone.  Support for further training or study is available and we seek someone who is wanting to obtain the NZ Level 4 certificate in Health and Wellbeing or a similar qualification.

Our team is a solid bunch of competent, caring, knowledgeable professionals.  We take the job very seriously, but never ourselves!  We are a positive, energetic lot that really want to make a difference – and have fun while we are at it.

Our mission is to create positive change and enable better lives.
