Full-Time People & Safety Manager

The Cancer Society Canterbury West Coast  Christchurch City, Canterbury $110,000 - $145,000 based on prior experience

Job Description

Our Kaupapa

The Cancer Society’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of cancer in Aotearoa, New Zealand. We are here for everyone, no matter what cancer. The support we provide is broad and includes counselling, transport, accommodation, health promotion and advocacy. We are also the largest private funder of cancer research in New Zealand.

At a local level Cancer Society Canterbury/West Coast Division (Cancer Society CWC) are deeply committed to the needs of whānau and have centres in Rangiora, Christchurch Central, Rolleston, Ashburton, Timaru, and Greymouth. We work closely with the Canterbury and West Coast communities to generate funding that allows us to offer these services and plan for the future.

Te Tiriti o Waitangi is foundational to our work and the Cancer Society recognises the status of Māori as Tangata Whenua of Aotearoa. Our strategic plan and equity charter underpin our commitment to overcoming the inequities relating to prevention, care and survivorship facing Māori, Pasifika and other minority groups impacted by cancer throughout Aotearoa.

Te āhua o te tūranga – the nature of the position

We are about to embark on a very exciting phase of change and empowering our employees to deliver excellence – in partnership with their community – which is at the heart of our approach.  We are on the hunt for a dynamic and engaging people leader who can successfully navigate and operate in a changing environment.  This is an all-encompassing role that straddles strategy and operations. The right person will be committed to community and recognise always that people sit at the centre of success.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, you will act as an enabler and influencer.  Your core mandate will be taking responsibility for all aspects of the employee life cycle and ensuring we are providing the best possible experience for kaimahi and volunteers. While having an eye on the future you will also shape and inform how we practice across the full People & Safety remit – recruitment and attraction, workforce development, employee engagement, safety and well-being and remuneration and rewards.

When people come to work here, we want them to feel valued, safe, and respected; we would like them to have fun and enjoy themselves along the way and be presented with opportunities to grow professionally. 

Ngā tino pūkenga/whēako – essential skills/experiences for the role:

We need an agile and future focused leader to help the organisation thrive in a period of transition.  You will want to work in an environment that is eager to introduce best in class, fit for purpose and scalable people-based initiatives, and it goes without saying that you know what good looks like and can lead people there.

This role is suited to a practical, forward facing people leader whose approach is authentic, contemporary, and empathetic.  You understand how to operate collaboratively and are committed to driving a culture of learning, innovation, continuous improvement, and service delivery, ensuring that the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi are embedded in our people policies and practices in a genuine and authentic way.  You may currently be in a similar people and culture role, or you are possibly looking for your next growth step to the executive level.
