Hearing Education Hawke’s Bay is a Charitable Organisation which has recently evolved from the long standing Hastings Hearing Association with over 50 years supporting those in our community affected by hearing loss.
Seven years ago we employed a Hearing Educator who developed free education programs which are delivered to early learning centres, kindergartens, schools, tertiary centres and community groups in the Hastings District. These programs are highly valued and are in great demand. We know from our evaluations that our message is being heard ‘loud and clear’.
It is an exciting time for Hearing Education Hawkes Bay having now reached the point where we want to make the program available to all of the Hawke’s Bay area and are therefore looking to expand by employing a second Hearing Educator. This is a diverse and rewarding role with some flexibility around hours.
We are looking for an outgoing person who has the confidence to present to groups of all ages. We need someone who is self-motivated and able to work independently.
- Comfortable presenting to people of all ages.
- Clear Confident speaker
- Ability to work independently
- Excellent Time Management and Organisational skills
- Competent using Microsoft Office
Full training will be provided. Full Drivers licence required.
Hours: 20 hours per week – Possibly term time only.
Employment Type: Permanent Part-Time
Start Date: Feb 2020
Pay Rate: from $22 - $25 per hour depending on previous experience.
To apply: Email a cover letter along with your resume to Hearing Education Hawke’s Bay President Lyn Gage - email@example.com
This week sees us all getting used to living at Alert Level 4. For this to work, we must all stick to the plan.
Stay home. It WILL save lives.
Let’s all remember why we are taking such extreme measures.
Staying home won’t always be easy. But the evidence tells us this is the best way to save the lives of other New Zealanders.
Finding our routines
It will take some time to build up new daily routines. That’s to be expected. We all need to be gentle with ourselves, and accept that things could be difficult for a while as we learn to adjust.
Looking after ourselves and others
Don’t forget to take time to look after yourself, and also to check-in on others. Asking someone how they are feeling is a good way to connect and show that you care.
We all need to stick to the plan
For this to work, and the effort we are all making to be worth it, we all need to stick to the plan, all the time. No exceptions.
Don’t move around
The virus is spread by us. So we all need to avoid moving around as much as possible. If you do go out for exercise or to get essential supplies, stay local. This is incredibly important. Don’t move between different areas.
Thank you for doing your bit
A massive thank you to everyone for working so hard to slow the spread of COVID-19. Together, we can and will save lives.

Neighbourly is quickly becoming an essential way to connect with your neighbours and community during self-isolation. Check-in on the vulnerable around you, and if you have extra supplies or some essentials someone in your neighbourhood needs, you can drop it at their door.

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...
We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.
New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.
Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
