Working for us

Wanted: People that make a difference every day!

Yes, that’s what happens at Barnardos, and that’s without taking into account the learning and development opportunities, friendly work environment and leave benefits.  

Other popular staff benefits include professional association fees, subsidised flu vaccinations and our comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme.

Barnardos has a long history of making a difference to children’s lives all around the world, and Aotearoa New Zealand is no different – because at Barnardos, the one reason for our being is children.

Our trained, experienced and passionate staff work with over 100,000 children and families in communities throughout New Zealand every year, ensuring that children receive the care, support and education they deserve – you can be a part of this too.

We make a difference every day to the lives of children and families through both the social services provided by our child and family services team, as well as being the country's largest community-based provider of early childhood education and care. Supporting both these teams is a core team of corporate services; Finance, ISS, Human Resources, Communications and Marketing.

Why work for us? At the end of each day you’ll know you’ve made a difference in the lives of children and families all over the country. The purpose of Barnardos is to support, challenge and empower families to make Aotearoa New Zealand the best place to be a child – imagine telling that to your friends when they ask you what you do!
