New Zealand Red Cross is proud to be part of the largest humanitarian network in the world. Working behind the scenes and in plain sight, everywhere, every day, they are doing good. Wherever you are, the New Zealand Cross is right there too, providing assistance to vulnerable people both here and overseas.

It is an exciting time to join the New Zealand Red Cross, as they embark on the implementation of Strategy 2030 – an organisation wide strategy that provides clear direction for the next ten years.

Empathetic, consultative and yet firm in your approach, you will know your craft well and will possess a strong understanding of relevant employment legislation and its practical implications. You will also possess superior problem-solving capabilities and have the ability to influence and inspire confidence at all levels.
