Full-Time Communications Adviser
New Zealanders quite like their drugs, the legal drugs like alcohol and illegal ones like cannabis and methamphetamine. That’s not necessarily a good thing.
That use can cause harm and add social, health and economic costs to individuals, families and communities. Preventing and reducing those harms is a big challenge for New Zealand, and it’s a challenge the New Zealand Drug Foundation has taken on.
We need someone to help us communicate good and proper, and to do excellent things that help reduce New Zealand’s drug problems. No biggie.
This is a rare opportunity for a skilled communications or health promotion professional to join our small-but-most-perfectly-formed team.
The position offers the right person a diverse and challenging work programme.
You’ll publish the best drug policy magazine in the world, make sure the boss stops drunk tweeting, keep our many websites sexy, and help campaign for healthy drug policy. You’ll test our thinking and life hack the shizzle out of the status quo to keep us at the sharp end of effective health promotion.
You will be a brilliant writer and editor, and have proven communications and social marketing experience. You will be sensitive to the serious harms alcohol and other drugs can cause. You will have experience communicating complex ideas to different audiences in different ways. You can manage yourself, take initiative and lead projects. You will be committed to excellence.
This full-time position is based in Wellington.
We’re gonna get you to jump through a few hoops to get on our shortlist… (see below)
