Smile Help for a social worker

Im writing this for a relative who does'nt have access to the internet.
Some family members have decided to try and join us when we go to nz. She's not to sure how easily she'll get a job or where to look.
She qualified as a social worker in 2003 and so has 3 years experience working in physical and learning disabilities area of social work. Is there anyone who can advise on what sort of work is out there in this field and any agencys she could approach. Thanks very much.

Hello
Another idea is to apply direct to the District Health Board {DHB}, in the area that they wish to live. There are still lots of opportunities for experienced social workers in NZ. This can be done through their web sites, direct to the recruitement officers. They too have information to assist with the visa process and are able to in many cases offer benefits, such as accommodation on arrival/cost of flight refunded.

There are also the NGO's, {basically the private sector}, where again there are many vacancies. Contact the local Citizen Advice Bureau in the area and they can give you a list of "charities" etc.

A good idea prior to an interview is to gen up on the cultural aspects of living in NZ.

Cheers and good luck
