Bupa is looking for part time Village Assistant to work at our Bupa  Merrivale Rest Home.

Bring your skills, passion and expertise to assist the Village Manager in the day to day operations of the retirement village.   You will assist with specific orientation programmes for new residents as well as provide and plan a range of activities and social programmes alongside the Village Manager for all residents to encourage group and individual resident participation.    You will have strong administration and communication skills and be flexible in your hours of work.

This position is to work on a part time basis (20 hrs per week, 9.30am-2pm,  Monday- Friday).  You must hold a driver licence and be prepared to drive our Van.  You will ideally hold a first aid certificate and you will need to cope well under pressure with emergency situations as well as be organised, have the ability to multi-task and use initiative whilst still accepting direction where necessary. 

Our villages have a strong sense of community.  You will help create a warm, friendly atmosphere and make sure residents feel at home. This means helping new residents settle in and overseeing the day to day activities of the village.  It’s about creating a rapport with all kinds of people, being an excellent listener and having the ability to empathise with residents, family and friends. Developing relationships and networking within the wider community is a critical success factor.

We are one of New Zealand’s leading health and care organisations, part of the global Bupa group. We have a strong commitment to helping people live longer, healthier, happier lives.   Our retirement villages allow older people the freedom to lead independent lives.
