Kia hiwa rā!

We are looking for a creative Social Media Assistant to join our new programme of Whānau as First Navigators.  The Whānau as First Navigators programme is an iwi-led response to whānau wellbeing in Te Waipounamu, and an exemplar of what a modern Te Tiriti o Waitangi partnership should look like. It's about taking a "for Māori by Māori" approach to ensure the heritage, mana, whakapapa and cultural identity of our tamariki and whānau are thriving.

As part of this three-year programme, we now seek a suitably qualified individual who has previous experience in social media campaigns, platforms, and advertising.  As a forward-thinking and detail orientated social media professional, we expect you to manage a variety of workstreams associated with the Whānau as First Navigators programme.  You will be accountable for assisting the communications team with social media platforms, content, and reporting. 

PLEASE NOTE:  Applications will be accepted during our closedown period (24/12/2021 - 10/01/2022), however candidates will not receive an update on their application until after Monday 24th January 2022.

  • Effective research skills
  • Excellent collaboration skills in a team environment
  • Exceptional time and project management skills
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Customer focused nature (sense of manaakitanga)
  • Demonstrated openness to learning and embracing a bi-cultural environment and moderating practices to suit.
  • Familiarity with the Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its application to the work of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu
