Digital Campaigner & Online Project Manager—2 Years Fixed Term, Wellington Based

NZEI Te Riu Roa is breaking new ground and taking a pioneering approach to campaigning online and to creating innovative pathways to joining the union.

The goal of this work is to increase our reach beyond our existing communities of members and supporters through the use of innovative digital strategies, new platforms and online ways of campaigning and organising.

In the next couple of months we want to take this to the next level.  We have an exciting opportunity for a digital campaigner and organiser to help shape and manage this new work.

As Online Project Manager you’ll kick-start new online communities and new organising and campaigning capabilities within NZEI Te Riu Roa, and implement new pathways to membership for ECE teachers and staff. 

We’re looking for someone who has expertise in digital campaigning, and has experience in developing unique supporter journeys that move people from being involved in a small online action to becoming active in social, political and community campaigns.

You‘ll need to be passionate about social justice and see collective action as the solution. A large part of your role will be building capability in the union, so you’ll need experience leading and teaching adults about new technologies. You also instinctively get visual content – and you have the technical skills to pull it off.

This is an opportunity to make a positive difference, and help win better public education for New Zealand’s children and the educators who work with them, by growing the Union and amplifying our members’ voices and activism.

NZEI Te Riu Roa is a collective of 47,000 passionate educators working in schools, early childhood services and in Learning Support all over New Zealand.

We are a Treaty based organisation, and use our collective strength to set the agenda in areas like child poverty and equal pay for women.  We support each other to win the gains that children and their educators need.

Every day we go to work and change lives.  But there is heaps more to do. Join with us and, together, we’ll be even stronger for children’s education.
