We are looking for an innovative part-time (initially 20 hours per week) manager to initiate and lead STEM Alliance Aotearoa, an emerging community of practice for STEM-focused businesses. The Alliance aims to maximise the impact of STEM companies' CSR spend and thus build a more equitable STEM skills pipeline.

You will have:
- A high-level qualification and credibility in at least one area of science
- Excellent interpersonal, networking and problem-solving skills
- Strong understanding of STEM business and industry motivations
- Ability to build and maintain task-focused connections across industry representatives, scientists, policy-makers, community organisations, schools and young people
You will be joining the enthusiastic team at COMET Auckland, which is a Charitable Trust and a Council Controlled Organisation of Auckland Council. Our mission is to drive systems change to make education and skills more effective and equitable across Auckland.
COMET celebrates diversity in all its forms and is an equal opportunity employer.
This is a part-time, fixed-term position to December 2021, with the opportunity to grow a longer-term, full-time role as the alliance expands.
