Visual and Digital Storyteller
Impact Collective - Rangitīkei, Ruapehu, South Taranaki and Whanganui

Impact Collective Operational Team
Fixed term, Full time (to June 2022)

Ko te kaupapa | About the role

The Impact Collective - Rangitīkei, Ruapehu, South Taranaki and Whanganui seeks an enthusiastic and talented Visual Storyteller to join our futures thinking team. The successful candidate will demonstrate an eagerness and ability to tell the Impact Collective - Rangitīkei, Ruapehu, South Taranaki and Whanganui story through photos, videos, and social media stories that captivate and inspire our various audiences, and amplify strategic messages across our platforms.

Reporting to the Impact Strategists, the Visual Storyteller will be involved in a wide range of projects that strengthen and enhance the Impact Collective - Rangitīkei, Ruapehu, South Taranaki and Whanganui reach and influence. Photo and video provide thought provoking media for communicating with whānau, hapū, iwi, businesses, communities, leaders and government.

We need an enterprising social media, video and photography professional who is up-to-date on social media, video and photography trends, and driven to creatively capture all the Impact Collective's mahi and engagements.

Preference will be given to candidates with additional skills such as animation, marketing, copywriting, advertising, and graphic design.

The Impact Collective - Rangitīkei, Ruapehu, South Taranaki and Whanganui is a collective of Iwi, local council, DHB, Police, Ministry of Social Development Te Puni Kōkiri representatives, formed in the immediate aftermath of the nationwide level 4 lockdown response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, through an integrated social governance model, the impact collective has continued with the renewed purpose to nurture a regenerative economy within a thriving community that creates wellbeing for all people, our whenua and the planet.

Across the Whanganui Rohe (Ruapehu, Rangitikei, Whanganui and South Taranaki) there are a number of organisations and government agencies working towards outcomes and delivering services to our communities. The coming together of organisations to address social (health, housing etc), economic and environmental factors ensures that all of the community, all of a whānau, and all of an individual are considered as part of the decision making process - no one element is to be perceived in isolation.

The Impact Collective are seeking to keep this sense of integrated social cohesion and governance and ensure that this becomes the 'new-normal' in response to the impacts of Covid-19 in Aotearoa New Zealand. To enable this, we are creating a 'Impact Collective Operational Team' to work with our communities, to baseline a rohe wide 'Community Wellbeing and Equity Profile'. This baselining will bring together the organisational statistics which are aligned to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (thinking Global), Treasury's Living Standards Framework (aligning Nationally) and to a localised Whānau Ora framework (acting regionally/locally), alongside the 'stories and narratives' which are collated during community wide engagement. By collating the 'Stats and the Stories' for the communities, we are able to present a holistic wellness picture of our communities to the membership of the Impact Collective - Rangitīkei, Ruapehu, South Taranaki and Whanganui, the New Zealand Government, and most importantly, our communities.

Responsibilities:

  • Be an expert advisor to the Impact Collective Governance Leadership Team in terms of social media, communications, visual and digital storytelling, graphic design, photography and video mediums.
  • Using visual storytelling, involving graphics, images, pictures, and videos to drive engagement with our community towards positive collective impact.
  • Support the work of developing partnerships with local iwi to enable iwi plans to be actioned through strategic commissioning, breaking down barriers, and navigating networks in conjunction with iwi.
  • Actively act as a community and iwi champion, ensuring that the voice of the communities is heard and fed back into the participating Impact Collective organisations to influence decision making.
  • Leading the development of content to enable robust community engagement and participation to increase health and wellness in our rohe.
  • Generate ideas for content and marketing campaigns
  • Write and produce quality content, taking into account conventions and limitations of social media platforms
  • Manage and respond to feedback on social media
  • Use content creation and editing software (such as Adobe Creative Cloud) to create high quality content
  • Track analytics to measure effectiveness and efficiency of digital marketing campaigns
