Along with clinical support and individual goal setting, we also engage them through our Tai Wātea surf therapy programme which gets them out of an office and onto the waves. This group therapy programme challenges them in an encouraging environment and allows them to look at where their lives are headed, empowering them to build momentum in a more positive direction.

This is a 3 month fixed-term contract to help us move towards gaining accreditation with the Ministry of Social Development. It is an exciting opportunity that offers a diverse range of challenges in helping us refine our policy and procedures and guiding us in the professional management of staff to ensure the smooth running of the day-to-day requirements of the organisation.

 Organising, managing and supporting staff and volunteers
 Managing the payroll function
 Driving the funding and marketing plans of the organisation
 Fundraising presentations and networking with the view to securing donors

 Demonstrated experience in driving strategic goals including securing and managing funding contracts
 Confident with public speaking, presentations and networking
 Previous people management and payroll experience
 Excellent verbal and written communication with great Microsoft Office skills
 Knowledge of Xero
 Website management or graphic design with some marketing knowledge or experience would be advantageous
 Understanding of AOD, mental health and the justice system would also be a bonus

What personal attributes and experience would you have:

 Humble and empathetic with a non-judgmental attitude
 Ability to demonstrate an understanding of Māori culture
 Fit and willing to participate in the Surf Therapy programmes if needed
