Māori Partnership Manager - Kaihautū Kōtui

About the organisation:

Aktive, a charitable trust, has been set up to achieve the vision of Auckland being the world's most active city. We are committed to helping people and communities across Auckland to live more active lives.

Aktive invests in organisations and initiatives that will increase and sustain participation and strengthen all parts of the sporting and recreational system. This is underpinned by our long-term strategic framework which identifies ‘Partnering with Māori’ as a key priority.

About the role:

Reporting to the CEO, the Kaihautū Kōtui role oversees the management of Aktive’s current Māori targeted initiatives as we move to support and uplift collective leadership so that aspirations of Māori for increased participation and leadership “as Māori” in play, sport and active recreation are supported.

It is responsible both for the oversight of contracts with major agencies such as Sport NZ (He Oranga Poutama) and Auckland Council, ensuring achievement of contracted outcomes, as well as strategic and operational planning and reporting.

The role assists with servicing Aktive’s Māori Advisory Group. It will be responsible for developing new partnerships with iwi and Māori organisations that meet Māori aspirations and outcomes, for championing access to resources, for inspiring organisations within the sector to adopt kaupapa Māori approaches and for the development of new strategic initiatives.

Existing frames that are expected to underpin the implementation work are Te Whetū Rēhua and the Auckland Approach to Community Sport.

Aktive is looking for a special person – a good strategic thinker who can bring things in to land, inclusively navigating two worlds and motivated to improve capability in a broad range of environments, so that Māori participation rates are improved.

The ideal person will be both innovative and action orientated, with great relationship building skills and an ingrained motivation to help others to learn and succeed.
