We're looking for a motivated, enthusiastic and capable Team Facilitator/Delivery Manager to join our Delivery Practice team and help us to make the things that matter, better.

Springload Te Pipītanga is the largest independent digital agency in Wellington. We encourage our employees to thrive at work and at home. We’ve got great clients, challenging projects, and a friendly workspace. There are always plenty of healthy snacks available, People’s Coffee brewing, and craft beer in the fridge. 

What we do and why we do it 
Ā mātou mahi ō mātou mātāpono 

Our purpose is to make the things that matter, better — better for people and for the planet. We follow a human-centred process, keeping the people we’re designing for at the centre of the work. We’re a multidisciplinary team, and we collaborate closely with each other and with our clients on projects that make a real impact.

We celebrate different perspectives. We're committed to creating an equal, inclusive, and diverse workplace. We know we do better work if we have a diverse mix of people on our team. We're also a certified B Corporation — ethical and environmentally sustainable practices are a huge focus for us.

We’re looking for someone who shares the same values.

We can offer you:

  • a whānau-friendly, flexible workplace, with the ability to work from home and potential for fully remote options within Aotearoa
  • a learning and growth budget to support your professional aspirations
  • a wellness package to keep you physically and mentally fit, including Southern Cross health insurance
  • highly talented teammates who strive to create world-class experiences that make people's lives better
  • opportunities to get involved in internal initiatives you care about, such as our sustainability group, waiata practice, and mental health chats 
  • a base in central Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand, near cafes, shops, theatres, and the waterfront.
