Part-Time Kaiwhakahaere/Coordinator of Wellington Timebank

Newtown Community & Cultural Centre/Wellington Timebank –  Wellington City, Wellington

Job Description

The Newtown Community & Cultural Centre is looking for a Kaiwhakahaere/coordinator to manage the Wellington Timebank and build on past success in an empowering environment under the guidance of a volunteer steering committee. 

The Timebank is in its 10th year and we’re looking for someone who can bring energy, ideas and leadership to achieve greater change in Wellington’s communities.

This is a fun and varied role that would be ideal for a ‘people person’ with a passion for community development, excellent communication and organisational skills, strong initiative, and a sense of humour.

Timebank Vision: In our community we look out for each other and embrace diversity.

Timebank Mission: Through exchanging skills, time and knowledge we foster relationships of trust and reciprocity. We harness the real wealth of the community and the value of each individual.

Timebank Values:  

  • We are all assets. Every person has something to contribute.
  • Redefining work. All kinds of work need to be honoured and rewarded.
  • Reciprocity. Relationships are about giving and receiving. “You need me” becomes “We need each other.”
  • Social networks. People helping each other weaves communities of support, strength and trust.
  • Respect. All of us matter and are accountable to one another.

Hours: This is a flexible, part-time position. The core funding for this role pays for 25 hours per week. We currently have additional funding to pay for 33 hours per week until the end of 2021. The Timebank functions best with 30+ hours of kaiwhakahaere/coordinator time, so we are looking for someone with capacity to do up to 33 hours, but only 25 can be guaranteed as the extra hours depends on us securing additional funding going forwards. Work hours will include occasional evenings and weekends.

Applicants must be able to work in NZ and employment will be subject to a clean NZ Police Vetting report.

Location: The Newtown Community Centre office. Some work in other locations will be required (likely other community centres).
