Communications Advisor (0.6FTE)

Are you an experienced communications and media advisor or journalist who shares our passion for education?

We are looking for someone to join our busy communications team in our Wellington offices.

You love breaking stories and finding new angles on an issue. You build relationships with journalists. You have excellent written skills. And you bring creativity and innovation to your work. A background in education would be an asset but not essential.

NZEI Te Riu Roa is a highly respected union that represents the interests of education sector workers in NZ. We endeavour to apply the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi and to maximise the contribution our union and members make to a decent society for all New Zealanders.

Reporting to the Head of Communications, you will be part of a small but highly dedicated team of experts who strive to empower and support members through the resolution of workplace issues and problems, and supporting their professional journeys.

This role is a permanent part-time role of 24 hours per week.

We offer competitive terms and conditions of employment, a great place to work and the opportunity to make a direct contribution to the lives of education workers and students in New Zealand.
