Care Worker

Holmdene, Balclutha

Part-time permanent

We are looking for a Care Worker for our Enliven care home in Balclutha, South Otago. 

You will be working 4 days on and 4 days off starting at 4pm and finishing at 11pm. 

You will be providing personal care within an aged care setting and should be keen, motivated to learn, and have empathy for older people.  You'll put your practical skills and compassion into supporting residents with everyday activities such as personal care, assistance at meal times, and general care duties that make for happier, healthier living at an Enliven home.

You will work hard, but there are few jobs that will give you the immense satisfaction of working for people who are grateful for your help and who contribute to an enriching working environment.

About You

We would love you to be:

  • Motivated to learn
  • Empathetic and compassionate
  • A team player
  • Able to work alongside, rather than for, older people
  • Able to take pride in your work
  • Flexible and think outside of the square
  • Able to manage the physical demands of the position. 

Applicants who hold the National Certificate in Community Support Services, Foundation Skills or Core Competencies Level 3, would have an advantage. 


  • Discounts at various retail suppliers
  • Career advancement opportunities including support to gain national qualifications which includes an associated pay increase.
  • Access to wellness benefits including free flu vaccines
  • Making a real difference in the lives of others
