Dogoodjobs.co.nz is an online jobs board linking passionate, talented, “do-gooders” (like you!) with job vacancies at organisations working to create social and environmental change.

Jobseekers & Do-Gooders

This website is made for you. It’s about helping you to find something that is more than a job – it’s about helping connect you with great jobs, jobs you can sink your teeth into, get passionate about, and use your skills to really help make the world more just and sustainable – because that’s the kind of world you want to see.

Employers & Headhunters

To find good people, you need to advertise in the right place… Do Good Jobs is NZ’s #1 ethical jobs network!

Check out the Employer page for more info on listing your good job vacancy.

What kind of jobs are on Do Good Jobs?

We are picky about whose jobs we choose to list – they’ve got to be about more than just profits. Check out our full criteria here. The types of jobs that are listed on Do Good Jobs must be either:

  • Development-related and/or be linked to the aid and development sector.
  • Environment-related and/or be linked to the environment/sustainability sector.
  • Community-related (health, well-being etc) and/or be linked to the community sector.
  • Be a charity, not-for-profit, NGO, government agency or community group. Profit-based businesses may still list roles if they do not operate solely for profit, and contribute in some way to social and environmental change (e.g a Fairtrade clothing company).

Please note, that a job posted on Do Good Jobs does not imply an endorsement of any one group, or their practices. Do Good Jobs provides access to adverts from a wide range of organisations. It is ultimately up to the user to decide the “good” nature of this role and what to apply for.

Who are we?

Do Good Jobs is run by Julia and Amelia who have been friends since they were 12. They’ve gone from hanging out after school to enjoying doing good together! From time to time they also have some great help on the site from others – blog contributors, web developers and interns (thanks guys!)

Julia has been working with not-for-profits since 2007, and she ain’t turning back! Her first job out of University was as the Marketing Manager of Trade Aid (2007-2010), she has since worked with 350 Aotearoa, All Good Bananas, Planet Goodness, Prometheus Social Finance and is now keeping Do Good Jobs running, alongside wearing another part-time hat as the manager of The Gift Trust, an organisation supporting medium sized donors make effective and tax-smart donation decisions.

Julia is a board member of Global Focus Aotearoa (now the Global Focus Fund). With the closing of their development jobs board in 2011, she decided to launch this website to continue to offer a service for finding jobs that do good.


All-rounder and founder

Amelia originally studied conservation biology and started her career in a wildlife park where she got to hang out with kiwi, kea, falcon and kakariki. Despite her love of nature, this wasn’t quite right for her. Unsure about her next steps, she ended up working in tourism for 6 years where she introduced sustainability projects into her workplace.

During a year completing a Graduate Diploma in Sustainable Practice she was exposed to the great potential and magic of online connectivity. Connecting job seekers to good vacancies and advice is where her passion at Do Good Jobs lies. Outside of Do Good Jobs Amelia has a day job as an Evaluation Advisor with the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority.
