Part-Time Communications Officer

Child Poverty Action Group –  Auckland City, Auckland

Job Description

Are you a highly organised self-starter with a talent for communications?

Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) is hiring a part-time Communications Officer to work to eliminate child poverty in New Zealand.

CPAG is a charity committed to ending child poverty so all children can flourish. We undertake research, education and advocacy to understand the causes, outcomes and solutions to poverty in Aotearoa-New Zealand.

Based on our pou of mana, manaakitanga, kotahitanga and mātauranga, we work to bring about systemic change so no child is reliant on charity for their basic needs. We believe children are taonga and everyone deserves a good start in life.

We seek a motivated Communications Officer to help us raise our profile and spread key messages. Ideally you will have an active interest in current social issues in Aotearoa-NZ and an understanding of politics. You will have a demonstrated commitment to upholding the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

It’s imperative you have excellent communication skills and can craft simple and accurate values-based messages. A tertiary qualification in communication, journalism or public relations (or equivalent industry experience) and experience working within Te Ao Māori will be highly advantageous. Most importantly, we are looking for a team player who believes in our kaupapa and has buckets of initiative.

Working under the direction of the Executive Officer, you will help us:

• Develop and update our communications strategy
• Maintain strong relationships with stakeholders and allies
• Run effective and engaging campaigns
• Monitor the media and search for opportunities to promote our message
• Plan and produce engaging content for campaigns and events
• Draft, edit, and place high-quality press releases
• Maintain and expand our social media presence
• Update our website
• Manage our audio-visual presence at events
• Develop newsletters and operational reports
• Format and edit key publications.

In return we offer a friendly and rewarding workplace, meaningful opportunities to learn and grow, and flexible working hours (with the ability to work some hours from home).

CPAG is an equal opportunities employer and encourages diversity in the workplace. This is a part-time role (20 hours a week), $55,000 – 75,000 (FTE).
