Kaiwhakahaere Kiripaepae – Receptionist

HOURS OF WORK: 20 Hours Per Week
STARTING SALARY: $64,000 pro-rata
TERM: Permanent

The Kiripaepae is crucial to the daily operations of CLWHV. It is vital that guests are greeted with manaakitanga, and clients are appropriately triaged and assisted based on their individual needs. Rōia (lawyers) and kaiwhakamanawa (staff who run our legal advice
sessions) rely on the data entry and filing mahi done by the Kaiwhakahaere Kiripaepae to uphold our responsibilities to the Law Society; and our Operations Kaihautū and General Manager rely on the Kaiwhakahaere Kiripaepae for administrative support. Many seemingly
small tasks held by the Kaiwhakahaere Kiripaepae are important overall for a smooth, happy, and functional workplace.

This role is based in our Pōneke office with fixed hours of 1-5pm Monday – Friday.
