Part-Time Support Worker – Gender Diverse
This is a newly created role, providing peer support to gender diverse youth, whānau and adults across the Northland region. Supporting whānau will include whānau with children under 12, who are gender diverse or questioning their gender.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of gender diverse communities. You don’t need to have all the skills and experience, we will provide full training, including peer support training. The most important thing is that you’re willing to learn and grow with the role. You’ll be working alongside lots of different folks from other agencies as well as service users, so being a people person and enjoying building relationships with people would be useful. A big part of this role will be working alongside the DHB and local clinicians to clarify pathways for gender affirming care in the region, and making that information available to those you’re supporting.
One of RainbowYOUTH’s core values is to proactively and respectfully honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi. We will welcome new staff members on this journey with us, and encourage you to discuss your commitment to this value in your application.
Lived experience as a transgender, gender diverse or gender non-confirming person is required for the role.
*We are using this term to include transgender, gender non conforming, non-binary, genderqueer, tāhine, Fa’afatama, whakawāhine, tangata ira tāne, Fa’afafine, Fakaleiti or Leiti, Fakafifine, Akava’ine and Vakasalewalewa.
