The Citizens Advice Bureau is a nation-wide volunteer organisation, with a proven track record.

The aims of the CAB:

What you will  be doing:

The Manager is responsible for the general management of the Nelson Tasman CAB, including:

  • recruiting and managing the team of approximately 45 local volunteers
  • assisting with on-going training and learning and development of volunteers
  • promoting the work of the CAB within the community.
  • Managing the Migrant Connect contract
  • Managing community relationships, liaison with other community agencies, funding agencies etc.

Experience and skills required

  • Empathy; and a high level of interpersonal skills
  • A high level of oral and written skills
  • An excellent understanding of bi-cultural matters, particularly with regard to Te Tiriti O Waitangi
  • An awareness of cultural diversity, and the ability to function effectively and respectfully when working with and helping people of different cultural backgrounds.
  • Excellent networking skills
  • An understanding of some of the challenges facing the Nelson Tasman community, and hopefully some experience in working with community groups which are trying to address these challenges.
  • Good computer skills, including Excel, Word, database management, email, online calendars, and experience in managing social media platforms such as Facebook

This is a challenging yet rewarding role in the not-for-profit sector – you will learn a lot, and you will be supported by a great team of volunteers and a committed Board, who share your values and commitment to helping the community.
