As a Seniors Case Manager, you will work with our superannuation clients to provide client support that will have a meaningful impact improving people's lives.   

We are looking for people with the following skills:

Above all, you will be passionate about making a difference to the lives of New Zealanders and will be committed to showing respect and care for whānau and individuals. 


The role will cover our three rural Service Centres – Taihape, Ohakune and Marton, and provide in person kaimahi support to our clients within these centres.


The successful applicant will be travelling between these three Service Centres and will need to be flexible and mobile. As a result, a full, clean drivers licence is a must.
