About Us

Project Restore NZ is the specialist national provider of restorative justice for sexual harm cases. We have a contract with the Ministry of Justice to deliver restorative justice processes within the criminal justice system and as an alternative justice process.  This provides great potential for survivors healing and recovery.

We are seeking a Clinical Manager for this newly created leadership role in our organisation.

About the Role
