The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand is a charity that works towards creating a society free from discrimination, where all people enjoy positive mental health & wellbeing. 

The Mental Health Foundation has been working to support New Zealanders who live with mental distress or illness by reducing the prejudice and discrimination they face in their daily lives, and we need a communications and marketing project lead to join us and help bring it to the next level.

This role is for someone who’s ready to get stuck in – a collaborative worker, an innovative thinker, someone who excels in fast-paced, ever-changing environments. We need someone who is ready to listen to our community and what they need, and turn insights into work that is responsive, supportive and effective.

If you’re a great listener, with phenomenal project management skills, excel at juggling multiple relationships and have strong communications and marketing skills, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Be an experienced project manager, with a proven track record of strong results, high audience engagement and excellent stakeholder management skills

  • Have knowledge of Te Ao Māori and Te Reo Māori (or a desire to grow and extend your existing knowledge)
  • Be experienced in using social media to motivate and inspire
  • Have strong relationship management skills

If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

What we offer: 

Our vibrant, open plan office is based in the heart of Mt Eden. We offer a positive, supportive, friendly and collaborative team culture.
