We listen to our community, so if they see an issue with a job advert we will withdraw this listing immediately and contact you to resolve this. You will be allowed to make changes to the listing to ensure it meets our criteria.
Listings must be linked to the causes listed below in order to be accepted must be either:
- development-related and/or be linked to the aid and development sector.
- environment-related and/or be linked to the environment sector.
- community-related (health, well being etc) and/or be linked to the community sector.
- aim to create positive social and environmental change.

- For profit business may list roles, but must operate not only for profit, and contribute in some way to social and environmental change.
Ads must also be for work or volunteer roles based in New Zealand, or by New Zealand organisations to fit our Kiwi target audience. Do Good Jobs have the right to allow overseas listings, but this will be at the admin’s discretion.
There are a number of job listings that will not be accepted on this website which include:
- Listings may not be solely faith-based role. However, if the primary focus of the role was in the development sector, environmental sector or community related sector (Do Good Jobs criteria), it would be acceptable. For example, a community support role that helps feed the homeless, but is led by a faith-based group.
- Companies who sole purpose is in regards to generating income, may not be considered appropriate for this website. If you are driven by a social aim, this is acceptable. Please contact us to discuss your role before listing.
- Listings may not be for military work, security services or oil industry roles.
- Organisations that promote discrimination or human rights violations may not submit listings. The Human Rights Act 1993 protects people in New Zealand from unfair discrimination in a number of areas – including in job listings. Read more on the Government Employment website here.
- Misleading listings – listings must only be for genuine work, contracts or volunteering opportunities.
- Illegitimate activities – in the opinion of the website this means it does not involve violate international law, break the law of countries where work is undertaken, or break applicable New Zealand law.
- Listings for the purpose of defrauding others.
