Psychologist – Te Kahu Tōī Te Awa Unit

Based in Penrose, Auckland

Rare opportunity for agile and dynamic NZ registered psychologist
Part time (0.4)  position available – 2 full days

He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata

What is the most important thing in the world?

It is people, it is people, it is people

A rare and rewarding opportunity for a challenge driven psychologist to work in a vibrant, multi-disciplinary team and be an ‘agent of change’ in the lives of rangatahi.

Who we are

Te Awa is a partnership between Oranga Tamariki and the Ministry of Education – Te Kahu Tōī, to provide Intensive Wraparound Services to rangatahi aged between 11 and 17 years old with high and complex needs who are in the care of Oranga Tamariki in the Auckland area.

Te Awa is delivered by the Northern Health School and is located in Penrose, Auckland.

Intensive wrapround is a highly effective, evidence-based model that creates positive, sustainable change for young people, their family, caregivers, schools and communities.

The ten principles of wraparound are

  1. Family Voice and Choice
  2. Team Based
  3. Natural supports
  4. Collaboration
  5. Community based
  6. Culturally competent
  7. Individualised
  8. Strengths based

What you will do

As the wraparound psychologist you are responsible for a variety of intensive clinical work including assessment, intervention, psychoeducation, advocacy and best practice recommendations to the wraparound team for each rangatahi based on their identified underlying needs.

You will work closely with the wraparound facilitators (in dyads) to build high engagement and rapport with the rangatahi, their whanau, caregivers and wider team.

While the model and processes are clear, you will be able to apply your own lens, expertise and have great opportunity to work creatively to effect real change.

There is a high level of autonomy and no two days are the same.

We offer

  • A close-knit team and great office culture
  • Small caseloads that allow you to work intensively
  • Access to multiple layers of supervision and practice support
  • A supportive management team with commitment to psychologist professional development

  • A NZ registered psychologist
  • Experienced in working with rangatahi, whanau and caregivers
  • Confident working in Te Ao Māori and Pasifika cultures
  • Able to build rapport and engagement with a range of young people, families and professional teams. Your interpersonal skills are second to none.
  • An excellent communicator (written and verbal)
  • A problem solver and creative thinker. Thinking outside the box comes naturally to you.

 A full clean New Zealand driving licence and police check are necessary for this role.

 For a confidential discussion or more information, please contact
