Making work life the good life

At Enliven, we recognise our people as out most valuable resource. We know it sounds cheesy, but it’s true! We want our people to love coming to work. We want you to stay and grow with us. That’s why we constantly work on making sure we make your work life, the good life.

Our staff all say different things when you ask them why they love working for Enliven, but there are some common themes.

It’s the focus on holistic wellbeing…

At Enliven, wellbeing is an integral part of our culture. Our wellness programme includes a calendar events and awareness days, free flu vaccines, access to professional counselling, formal and informal peer support and buddy programmes, discounted healthcare cover, long service leave, and lots more!

And when it comes to days and hours – we can offer flexibility, from regular hours to casual shifts and everything in between, to suit your family and lifestyle.

It’s the people…

Enliven work teams are like a second family. So many of our staff tell us they feel a real whānau connection with their colleagues and Enliven’s awesome elders.

At Enliven, you’ll meet people from all walks of life. Not only do we embrace diversity, we celebrate it. At Enliven you’ll find yourself having the opportunity to get involved in events and celebrations including Waitangi Day, Diwali, St Patrick’s Day, International Women’s Day, Pink Shirt Day, Matariki, Māori Language Week, Chinese New Year and lots more!

It’s the little perks…

Sometimes it’s the little things that make a real difference in our lives. Things like being able to pick a uniform colour or style that suits you, the discounted meals at work (yum!), the free on-site parking or maybe the deals and discounts from dozens of well-known shops and brands.

And, if that’s not enough… it’s the FUN!

Our team members tell us one of the things they love about working at Enliven is that while they’re busy, and work hard, every single day provides them with opportunities to have fun at work.

From enjoying a meal with colleagues to banter with the residents to taking part in the many fun celebrations and events our homes put on, being part of a team that sees the benefits of having fun makes coming to work a pleasure.

That’s why people love working here.

We spend time getting to know you and your needs, encourage your career growth and work hard to ensure your job is fulfilling, satisfying and enjoyable. But don’t just take our word for it… read what our staff have to say below.
