Due to a staff member relocating out of Auckland, Ambury Park Centre is seeking an Equine Facilitator for our Centre.
We are a unique centre with a focus on riding for therapy. We offer three programmes; Riding for Disabled, a vocational programme for adults with intellectual disabilities and a secondary school for students (max 30) who have struggled in the mainstream system for various reasons.
Your role is to support the equine team in the care of the horses. You will provide their day to day care, assisting with the horse care and supervising daily routine activities and have horses prepared for their work (groomed, tacked up, etc). This role also has a responsibility for creating groundwork and ridden programmes for the horses' fitness and training. There is a riding element to this role.
We seek someone with a flexibility of approach, a passion for changing lives and the ability to relate well to young people.
This would suit anyone with horse experience. A knowledge of working with people with a disability / teenagers at risk would be advantageous but not necessary. Kindness, patience and an ability to use your initiative is essential.
This is a full time, permanent position.
Please contact Vicky at principal@ amburyparkcentre.org.nz for more information. A CV must be submitted via email to principal @ amburyparkcentre.org.nz.
Applications through facebook will not be considered.
The interview process will include you working with a horse(s) both on the ground and ridden.
Date: Friday 8th October.
