The Life You Change Might be your own

There’s a sense of fulfilment to being a Support Worker that other jobs can’t match. Roles are as varied as the people you work with, letting you shape your career in your own way. By making a difference to others, the life you change may be your own

What’s it like working closely with others? How does it feel to be genuinely needed and valued by the people you work with? What does the job entail? You can learn all that through the Life Changing Career website.

Life Changing Career is a programme supported by Ministry of Health, Ministry of Social Development, Careerforce and Tertiary Education Commission/Te Amorangi Mātauranga Matua.
