Do you have a passion for supporting people with disabilities? Do you have the enthusiasm, initiative and drive to make a genuine difference to your community? And do you have a background in event, project and social media management? Then we are looking for you!

Here at Autism New Zealand we pledge to walk every step together with people living with autism. We work to ensure that the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) community of Aotearoa New Zealand is empowered to make choices and achieve their full potential.

We are currently seeking a Community Engagement Coordinator to help us achieve greater outcomes for the ASD community. This is a unique and varied role, primarily involving the management of our communication channels and platforms, and the coordination of projects and events. The Community Engagement Coordinator will work closely with our Chief Executive and Business Manager to develop ideas and projects that increase and affirm Autism New Zealand’s reach and impact.

The successful candidate will have:

• Great initiative and enthusiasm and a go-getter attitude
• The ability to think creatively and develop and implement great ideas
• A knowledge of the autism spectrum and related conditions
• A strong background in project and event management
• Whizz-kid social media skills and vision
• Strong verbal and written communication skills

If you think you might be a great person for this role but don’t necessarily have qualifications in the above areas, we would still love to hear from you. Fundamentally, we are looking for someone who can fit well into our national office team, with the right attitude and energy for making a genuine difference in the community.

This is a fixed-term position, for six months and 20 hours per week.

For a full job description, or to apply, please email (for applications please include your CV and cover letter). Applications close April 9th 2018.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
