Cross Cultural Navigator - Spanish Speaker

Part time fixed term position

Join a trusted, supportive, quality organisation, dedicated to securing the best health outcomes for former refugees resettled in Invercargill!

WellSouth is seeking a skilled Cross Cultural Health Navigator to work alongside families and health professionals to achieve the best possible health outcomes for former refugees. The role is new and initially part time until the end of October 2018 as we understand the needs of the community.

You will be fluent in Spanish and English, experienced in working in both community and professional settings and with a current NZ driver’s licence. You will have a passion for guiding people through new and challenging experiences and celebrating their successes.   Having several years’ experience in a similar role and the ability to work with people from diverse cultural and social backgrounds will equip you well for this position.

You will have personally experienced some of the challenges of negotiating life in a new culture. In that journey you will have developed an understanding of the complexities of the NZ health system, especially primary care services. You will be comfortable taking a guiding role with people from varied backgrounds and with a wide range of needs. If you are innovative, an excellent communicator and have good personal organisational skills, then this could be the job for you. In addition a strong commitment to working as part of a supportive team and on autonomous projects will be crucial to success.  The hours of work are negotiable.

If you are a motivated and confident individual looking for a challenging role providing a rewarding community service then WellSouth would love to hear from you.
