Part-Time Funding Advisor (0.8FTE)
Funding Advisor (Part-time 32hrs per week)
When you join our high performing Community Services team you help make the city a greater place to live, work and play. We manage Council’s community grants which we use as a tool to partner with organisations, helping us to deliver on a range of outcomes. We also provide advice within council, and to community, arts and environmental organisations.
We are on the hunt for someone with an eye for detail and numbers; the role includes supporting the team with data capture and analysis of spend alongside other community grants’ processes, from initial enquiry to payment and reporting.
Our ideal candidate will have two to three years relevant experience in the grant-making and funding sector, be comfortable with digital processes and have some knowledge and experience of the community sector. You will be a confident communicator, have strong interpersonal skills with the ability to work effectively across all stakeholders both internally and externally and be an enthusiastic team player. You will also be comfortable with a flexible work approach and have an ability to adapt to changing project priorities and new initiatives.
The Community Services Team delivers on the outcomes of the 2016/19 Triennium Plan which clearly articulates a move to a more community participatory design approach to service development and projects/mechanisms which include:
a place-based approach to community development, integrating a co-design participatory approach to local planning and service development reflecting local needs
participatory approach to suburban planning to ensure local services and programmes meet local needs; this supports a community co-design approach allowing residents and communities to have more input into designing council services to meet their future needs
local community safety plans are developed with the community
The Unit’s core functions are to:
build community and neighbourhood resilience, support and facilitate the development of connected, vibrant and participatory communities
ensure that Wellington is a safe, tolerant and healthy city with a strong social infrastructure supporting its residents
Ensure there is an effective city-wide welfare and social recovery response for people and animals in an emergency.
This is a part-time role for 32 hours per week (0.8 FTE) and is based at the Council offices in the central city.
Due to the nature of the role some work will be required outside of normal office hours so flexibility in working hours is also necessary. Applicants must be eligible to work in New Zealand.

Please be aware that we will only have skeleton staff on over the holiday period and enquiries should be directed to [email protected] There will be someone monitoring email queries, it may just take a little longer that usual to get back to you.
