Web and Social Media Communications Advisor


We are looking for a digitally-savvy, mid-grade communications professional who is an experienced and capable ‘doer’ who:

  • Can draft material for web and social media – and edit others’ copy to make it work for those channels.
  • Is used to using a CMS, posting and updating content and working collaboratively on posting social media.
  • Is experienced working with traditional news media, as the role will support the current part-time media advisor.
  • Committed to the kaupapa – to eliminate family violence and sexual violence – and to working with Tangata Whenua and communities to achieve this, including the ability to communicate in an equitable way that upholds the mana of Tangata Whenua and the Crown’s Te Tiriti obligations.

It would also be an advantage (but not essential) if you had:

  • basic (or better) Te Reo Māori.
  • experience in print production.
  • knowledge of family violence/sexual violence sectors/communities.


  • Able to work under pressure, resilient
  • Able to operate effectively in a complex and sometimes ambiguous work environment.
  • A good team player who can work collaboratively with a small team and also across a sector-based group.
  • Context: while understanding technical needs and requirements, has ability to understand and consider the wider relationship, communications and government/public sector/stakeholder context in which the JV operates (and able to adapt advice and delivery accordingly).
  • Listener, compassionate.
  • Self-responsibility, proactive.
  • Strong problem solving ability.
