    You’ll need to be creative yet practical, and be willing to roll up your sleeves to make it happen. Most of all, you’ll love what you do.

    For this role you’ll bring a range of content skills and expertise to the team, including :

  • a demonstrated track record in creating engaging communications using a variety of media (eg text, graphics, video)
  • an enquiring and curious mind to act on a vision and turn it into reality
  • great relationship management skills, with the ability to engage and influence at all levels
  • a strong focus on the needs of your audience
  • excellent writing and editing skills
  • proven experience delivering quality work to tight deadlines
  • a passion for helping our taiohi.
  • We’re looking for a person who is energetic, a team player, calm under pressure and passionate about quality communications to reach our target audience, our young people and Youth Coaches.
