We are looking for people who are friendly and approachable, who have well developed communication and interpersonal skills, who are calm, courteous and professional to join us as volunteer advocates.

We are a non- profit organisation assisting people from all walks of life with issues they may be having with Government agencies like Work and Income, IRD and Study Link.

You will need to be….

- Reasonably computer literate (although all training will be provided)
- Have an understanding and commitment to a culturally sensitive working environment.
- To be able to work cooperatively with colleagues to develop constructive and positive working relationships.
- Be non-judgmental and empathetic

Our advocates usually work one shift of four hours per week, and we have positions available both in our Hastings and Napier offices.

We provide extensive training, a great team of co-workers to work with, and the satisfaction that you are helping someone in need!
