Supporting people to live fulfilling lives is incredibly rewarding.

 

Satisfaction

Regardless of which part of Pact our staff work in, they find supporting others to lead fulfilling lives is rewarding. Staff rate working with clients and watching their achievements as the best part of the job. 

training and career progression  

New staff are given training in the things they need to know to do the job, as well as other training and development as it is needed. Pact offers a variety of New Zealand Quality Authority-approved national certificates. There is also the chance to move along a career path at Pact as positions arise.

non-support roles   

Even in roles which do not directly support people, staff know their work helps Pact run successfully and that they are contributing to making a difference in people’s lives. We have skilled teams which look after education, HR, finance, IT, quality, health and safety, analysis and property.

In her own words   

Pact Balclutha mental health worker Tracey Currie talks in this video about why she loves support work and about being one of almost 100 trainees across New Zealand who are taking part in the New Zealand Apprenticeship in Mental Health and Addiction Support, a workplace-based apprenticeship programme developed and supported by industry training organisation, Careerforce.

 

Look at current vacancies.


“It’s great to see how far [clients have] come. There are a couple of guys who spent a lot of their lives in an institution. There were a lot of naysayers who said it would never work; that they’d never be able to be in the community. But we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to lead a fulfilling life in the community, and they do.”
