Guarding the wellbeing of our children is a huge and exciting challenge - one that every New Zealander has a hand in. Will you join us?




Oranga Tamariki – Ministry for Children is transforming – both our workplace and the way we practice Social Work. We’re looking at new ways to do things, with our one goal in mind – Protecting the Tamariki of New Zealand. Is this your goal too?

The Taumarunui office extends from Waiouru in the south, to Mapiu in the north and from Whangamomona in the west to the top of the Hauhangaroa Ranges in the east.  Applicants will need to be able to work with a range of Iwi in the area, and also be able to represent the Ministry, and ensure that legislated processes are complied with, when on Marae and other community based venues.



We can offer you:
• a salary between $46,867 - $79,015 (commensurate with skills and experience)

• a challenging, fascinating and rewarding career

• on-going training and regular supervision

• commitment to the highest standards of strengths-based social work


In return, you must have a Social Work Qualification recognised by the New Zealand Social Work Registration Board (SWRB) or full registration with SWRB and a current Annual Practising Certificate (APC) and full clean valid driver's licence without conditions.
