A 9-Month Fixed Term Parental Leave Cover opportunity for an experienced, enthusiastic Fund Development Co-ordinator

Funding is essential to support GirlGuiding New Zealand’s mission to help girls and young women build self-esteem, confidence and leadership skills. We rely on raising funds through various pathways – from grants to corporate partnerships and everything in between! 

This role provides a unique opportunity for someone who is looking to draw on and further progress their grant application and fundraising experience.   

This is a full time, fixed term (9-month parental leave cover May 2021 to Feb 2022) position and although the GirlGuiding NZ National office is based in Christchurch, the location for this role can be flexible for the right candidate.

You will need to easily demonstrate your:

  • Experience working within a fundraising team
  • Experience and proven success in grant applications
  • Strong relationship management skills
  • Commitment to customer services excellence
  • Great communication skills with the ability to advocate for your employer
  • Experience using a range of technology products
  • Experience in a not-for-profit environment and/or working with volunteers

What we offer:

If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you and in return for your skills, we offer an opportunity to grow your talents and experience within a friendly supportive environment.
