CCS, farming and care assistant positions

In all employment undertaken I have acheived a high standard of outcomes, whether that is working as a supervisor or crew member. One of the most challenging tasks I have faced was during my employment with CCS, this involved advocating for more vulnerable members of the community ensuring they receive all entitlments from services, at times I would have to push boundries but not breach them. I discovered that there is alot of flexibilty in the NZ social development and health systems if you are willing to speak up, this was a very rewarding postion holistically.

Pros

Meeting new people and absorbing skills that others were willing to share

Cons

A mentally fast paced postion, that requires the recognition of personal down time, that sometimes would sneek up on you.
