WE'RE HIRING: PART-TIME YOUTH WORKER
We are seeking a youth worker to join the Newtown Community & Cultural Centre Youth Programme team part-time.
Our community-based Youth Programme empowers our local young people to unleash their potential, develop positive personal skills and have meaningful relationships in the community.
We are seeking a youth worker who is passionate about supporting young people to join our team. The ideal candidate will be a natural leader who is experienced in youth work, and confident relating to people of all backgrounds and ethnicities, with excellent organisational and communication skills. This position requires lots of initiative, in order to tailor the programme to the needs of the community.
This is a flexible paid part-time position of 10 hours per week and may require some evening/weekend work. You will be one of two youth workers at the centre, so the ability to work independently and as part of a team is essential.
Applicants must be able to work in NZ and employment will be subject to a clean NZ Police Vetting report.
For a job description or to apply (with a CV and cover letter), please contact Eryn Gribble at the Newtown Community & Cultural Centre, email@example.com or phone 04 389 4786

Shortlisted candidates will be notified by Thursday 3rd August and interviews will most likely be held on Monday 7th August.
Our Town Newtown - Questionnaire
The Our Town Newtown Project Questionnaire is now live! This questionnaire is a community-wide introduction to the Our Town Newtown Project. This project is a collaboration between Wellington City Council and Newtown locals and is providing Newtown with an opportunity to collectively develop ideas and identify how to best spend Wellington City Council allocated funds on the development of WCC community facilities in Newtown.
We have opened a pop-up project hub in the shop site at 199 Riddiford St, next door to St Vincent de Paul, you can go here to see how progress is coming along. There will be public talks and activities in the near future - watch this space!
Right now we're keen to hear your initial thoughts via this questionnaire. We're keen to understand where we are starting from: what Newtown is, what Newtown has, what Newtown needs, and how Newtown does things. The questionnaire is designed to collect information about this.
The online version of the questionnaire is here. Please fill this in and then share wildly! If you or anyone you know would rather be interviewed, instead of filling in a form, please let us know by emailing us or popping into the pop up shop at 199 Riddiford St.
Please send us a message with any questions or suggestions: firstname.lastname@example.org
