In announcing Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers (ANZASW) is seeking a Kaiwhakahaere (CEO), Perehitana-President Sharyn Roberts saidThe resignation of Lucy Sandford-Reed, the long-standing Chief Executive at ANZASW has opened up an exceptional opportunity to lead the development of the social work profession in Aotearoa by supporting social workers’ professional development and excellent practice and by representing their views on social policy and other matters that promote social justice, human rights and human dignity”.

“We are looking for a Kaiwhakahaere CEO able to take the organisation through the next phase of our development” says Sharyn. “In a fast-changing sector, we must constantly improve what we deliver to members with a strong array of professional development options, representation and advocacy.
