Part-Time Comms & Marketing Wizz
Thankyou Payroll is a cloud based social enterprise providing free payroll intermediary services to SMEs and charitable trusts around the country. We also donate a proportion of our revenue to Thankyou Charitable Trust which funds micro-grants into the community., Much of our identity lives in the digital realm. In 7 years, Thankyou Payroll has barely done any paid advertising and has over 4500 clients. IRD is now making legislative changes that will likely see 50-60,000 employers looking for payroll intermediary services in the next couple of years, and we need a communications and marketing wizard to help put TYP in the forefront.
This position exists to develop and improve communications and marketing between Thankyou Payroll and the world! (New Zealand) to increase our brand awareness and name recognition to place TYP as a strong contender for payroll services. Your role is to help develop and implement a high-level communications and marketing strategy for ongoing communications with our existing clients, and awesome marketing campaigns for potential new clients as well as the public. You will be media savvy and know how to find and form good relationships with media partners and where to look for good marketing and communication channels. You’ll have a flair for creating content for articles and other public facing communications, and you’ll have the creativity, imagination and skills to do this! Your role will also include coordinating social media, increasing brand awareness, and identifying opportunities for Thankyou Payroll to reach new and existing audiences. This role is also responsible for developing campaigns and other novel approaches to communicate what we do and increase our client base.
You’ll also be excited about social enterprise and have an appreciation of our organisational values. Plus, you like dogs (we have office dogs). Ideally you would be tech savvy and it would be desirable (but not essential) if you had some design skills, photography skills, or videography skills. It would be beneficial (but not essential) to have some understanding of payroll and New Zealand employment legislation.
