Deaf Aotearoa provides a workplace which values diversity, and where both New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) and English are used. Staff members are supported in the development of their NZSL skills and if required we can help them develop their written English as well. We have over a dozen nationalities represented within our staff, and we have an age range from people in their late teens to people in their sixties.
We are an equal opportunities employer and we have Deaf-friendly work practices in place. We employ Deaf and hearing people at all levels, NZSL interpreters are provided for all meetings and training courses.
We encourage and support professional development and offer flexible, family-friendly work practices.
We are strongly committed to following organisation standards that ensure we provide quality systems, work practices and services. We perform service audits and review our policies regularly.
