Full-Time General Manager
This ain’t your run-of-the-mill GM job. Zeal was born in 1999 in response to the murder of a Wellington teen, Xathan (Jeff Whittington), in an anti-gay hate crime. Our mission was formed, and remains built, on a Christian ethos – a revolutionary, first century rabbi who welcomed those that society rejected. We’re gritty, quirky and passionately inclusive. If you’re about making a real measurable difference to the lives of young people, then keep reading.
As General Manager, you will be executing the strategic and operational leadership to Zeal. You will embody and effectively communicate Zeal’s vision and values, developing sound long-term strategy that achieves results in measurable blocks. You will understand the interplay of the multiple factors present in not-for-profit management, discerning quickly and making wise judgements.
You’re a leader. And your leadership of people will be proactive and motivating. You will maintain a strong, transparent, and caring organisational culture – our people feel Zeal in their bones and you will too. You will drive our Christian ethic forward and be a key leader on our bicultural journey.
Your experience in financial management will ensure that Zeal runs efficiently and effectively.
Reporting to the CEO, you will work closely together, ensuring accountability for Zeal’s overall success.
Finally, you will have a deep conviction that propels you to make a difference in the lives of young people – a mission first, then a job.
In short, you’re hard to find and we can’t wait to meet you. We are an exciting organisation and this is an exciting opportunity.
This role is a full-time permanent position based at our West Auckland office and involves regular travel to our other centres.
