Full-Time Director – Stakeholder Development
ARE YOU READY FOR SOMETHING MORE?
Be Collective is your digital gateway to helping your community and realising your positive social impact both individually and collectively. It fosters employment pathways, active citizenship, supports individuals to showcase their abilities and volunteering through a verified Social Record/Social Resume, and enables organisations to demonstrate and promote their social impact.
Be Collective is a digital platform for mobilising goodwill through volunteering. We’re a place for action and a platform that asks people to do what they can, when they can. We’re here to make the world a better place and bring out the best in people, businesses, government, educational institutions and not-for-profits, by connecting those providing volunteer opportunities with volunteers ready to create social change.
Our team of developers, designers and marketers all believe in connecting the goodwill of others. It’s why giving is intrinsic to our team culture, and why people stick around.
We’re looking for a Director of Stakeholder Development in Wellington, to work closely with our existing clients and continue to drive the success of Be Collective in New Zealand.
The Director will be responsible for promotion, management, rollout and uptake of Be Collective across stakeholder groups from large businesses and governments to NFPs and education institutions. It’s a strategic and hands-on role that requires a passionate and effective leader who really knows how to listen, because you’ll need to understand organisational needs and processes and identify opportunities and strategy for growth. We’re looking for an agile self-starter with a personal passion for driving social change.
