We have the privilege to partner with one of New Zealand’s highest profile and most trusted charities.  This much loved organisation relies 100% on the generosity of the public as there is no government support.  They are a unique provider of services and support to families and caregivers who have a child requiring medical assistance, often residing in Starship (Auckland) long term.

When you hear of this organisation you instantly recognise them, you know their brand and who they support however we aim to take this several steps further…  An audacious goal is to deliver key messages to the public in support of all fundraising and marketing efforts.

Your personal flair and character is what will make this work.  We are after a professional addition to the team who are made up of marketing specialists including digital, social media, events and of course communications.

Do you want to be part of their journey, gain greater rewards than just triple bottom line?  Transfer your skills into the not for profit sector or build on them in this market? The not for profit sector is uniquely different to commercial.  There are some subtle differences and there are some huge ones. We are open to where you come from however must have that energy and flair for community and health, some empathy and awareness that your actions directly impact people’s lives.  This is a powerful position of motivation.

I hope to hear from you soon.
