Tū pakari, tū taha. Ko te kotahitanga o tō tātou kaupapa. Nōku te Ao.Stand proud. Stand alongside. We are united by our purpose. This is my world.

In return, we’re offering a fulfilling, challenging and rewarding career working alongside a dynamic, experienced and supportive team on a programme that aims to change Aotearoa for good.

Nōku te Ao: Like Minds is embedded in kaupapa Māori, and its priority audiences are Māori and Pasifika with lived experience of mental distress. The successful candidate for this role will be someone who understands these audiences and has experience working with them authentically, respectfully and successfully

You will:

  • Have at least five years’ experience in a communications or marketing role
  • Be an experienced project manager, with a proven track record of strong results, high audience engagement and excellent stakeholder management skills

  • Have experience working with and understanding of Māori and/or Pasifika communities and/or people with lived experience of mental distress
  • Be experienced in using social media to motivate and inspire
  • Have strong relationship management skills

If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. A full Job Description is available here
