Tēnā koutou katoa

Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley provides restorative justice services in the Wellington region. We’re looking for someone incredible to join our restorative justice team, to work with us to increase the use and availability of restorative justice conferences.  This is a part time position of 20-30 hours per week, based primarily in Lower Hutt.

You don’t need a background in restorative justice, but you do need a passion for our kaupapa, some sharp relationship-building skills and the love of a good challenge. You will need to be confident relating to a broad spectrum of people, including judges, lawyers, police, community groups, kaupapa Māori social service providers, offenders and offence victims. Building great relationships will enable your smooth management of referrals between restorative justice conference facilitators and the court. You will need to be highly self-motivated, a great multi-tasker, and able to coordinate with your colleagues from a distance. Our ideal applicant is a people person who is keen to make things happen, and can back this up with a reliable, organised and professional work ethic.

This role is part time and based primarily at the Lower Hutt court.  Your time will be tied to certain court sessions, but apart from that you will need to manage yourself pretty independently, from either our Hutt Valley or our Wellington office.

You’ll be rewarded with a job that has great flexibility, amazing colleagues, incredible job satisfaction and the knowledge that you’re contributing to potentially life-changing experiences for people through restorative justice. We’re open to applications from people with a variety of experience and from a range of backgrounds. We are primarily interested in your raw skills, your character, your commitment to our cause and your ability to learn.

If you’re interested in being part of a great team of people dedicated to developing restorative justice services in Wellington, Porirua, and the Hutt Valley, then we want to hear from you.
