At Oranga Tamariki—Ministry for Children, we are committed to putting children and young people at the heart of everything we do and say. We value the wellbeing of tamariki and rangatahi above all else. We want to ensure that all children and young people are in loving whānau and communities.

As a casual Resource Worker, you may be called upon to work as and when required.  Shifts can vary from morning, afternoon, evening and graveyard times any day of the week. Because our casual pool provides support when relief is required, you may be called upon at short notice.
