The purpose of the role is to bring parents and caregivers together, giving them a chance to meet up and connect in a welcoming and safe environment.
This can be a busy and a varied role where you will be responsible for helping out where needed on a Tuesday and Thursday morning and assisting our Playgroup Coordinator.

You will also be responsible with ensuring the space is tidy at the conclusion of the session. As a part of this role, you will also incorporate the fundraising opportunity, so you will need to be comfortable asking for donations from our participants.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about community and supporting families. You will be a self-motivated, warm individual with a skill for communicating with whānau from all walks of life. Working with tamariki will require you to be flexible and agile, therefore you will be able to adjust as required.
