Full-Time Policy Adviser or Senior Policy Adviser, Fixed-Term (18 months) / Part-time considered

New Zealand Drug Foundation –  Wellington City, Wellington

Job Description

We need someone to help us through a busy period in the lead-up to the cannabis referendum. This is a crucial time for us, with a government poised to make real changes for good, provided we can keep the pressure up. If you have a passion for social justice, evidence-led policy and improving health outcomes for all New Zealanders, then come and work with us.

We’re looking for a skilled and experienced policy adviser who can support us in thinking and writing about the many drug-related issues that New Zealand is debating right now. You will be a rigorous analytical thinker. You will understand the policy development process, be able to research and analyse complex and sometimes competing evidence, and write with clarity and conviction.

The person appointed to this position will have at least three years’ professional experience as a policy adviser in government or the private sector. You will have a keen eye for detail and quality control and a commitment to excellence. Prior experience in human rights, social justice and alcohol and drug policy would be a distinct advantage.
This fixed-term position is based at our fabulous office over-looking the harbour in Wellington. Part-time considered.
