An opportunity for this type of work life balance is rare. If you have compassion for seniors and those with disability from the Local Remuera Community plus enjoy working with and managing volunteers then we want you to join our Communicare (not- for- profit) Family. An ideal role for someone living locally in the Remuera or the immediate surrounding locality - spend your precious time away from the central Auckland Traffic.

You will have a strong drive to make a difference to the lives of seniors within this locality, so while you may have varied personal commitments this role will not play second best.

You will have a genuine desire to connect and care for people, and work experience to match this.

Commit to us every Tuesday from 9am -3pm during school term time and enjoy the school holidays with your family/other commitments.

Diplomatic by nature your willingness to roll up your sleeves and undertake the most mundane tasks will make the difference to providing recreation support and advocacy for our very special members within our Friendship Centre.

Running a safe, supportive and enjoyable centre
Managing Volunteers

At Communicare centres, one of the favourite activities for our senior members is the occasional outing. On this occasion members from the Avondale Friendship Centre enjoyed a train excursion which, for some of them, was the first time they had been on a train since they were children and many said that the last time they were on a train it was a steam train!
