Legal Education and Community Development Worker
Kia hiwa rā!
Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley (CLWHV) is looking for the right person to help us continue to grow our community legal services for Māori in Wellington and the Hutt Valley.
This role is part of a regional service which aims to achieve tikanga Māori solutions. We see legal needs in the context of an individual and community’s local, personal, social, spiritual and cultural needs. Our legal service aims to dramatically improve the everyday lives of individuals, whānau, hapū and iwi.
Based in Te Awa Kairangi but working with a team across two offices (Te Awa Kairangi and Te Whanganui-a-Tara), and providing outreach to Porirua, this position provides an opportunity for someone with vision and drive to create real, meaningful change in Aotearoa New Zealand. We currently have an exceptional team of Māori lawyers and community workers who are all incredibly committed to making a difference. To fit in, you will need to be idealistic and passionate, but not a bridge burner. You need to be wholeheartedly committed to improving access to justice for Māori and be prepared to challenge the status quo.
It could suit someone with significant experience in community development and adult education, or a mature and self-motivated graduate. As always, we are primarily interested in your raw skills, your character, your commitment to our cause and your ability to learn.
In return we can offer you an exceptional work environment with as much flexibility and responsibility as you need to get the job done. Our aim is to make community law the best place to work for the best people.
Applications close 5pm on Monday 15th February.
