Social Media Manager

  • Wellington
  • N/A

* Lead our social media presence
* Motivate the public to help vulnerable children and young people
* Help vulnerable and at risk young people to thrive

About the role:

We believe children and young people are taonga. In this role, you’ll be responsible for using social media to help us build a country where everyone shares this belief.

Through your work, the public’s awareness of vulnerable children and young people will be increased.

The public will understand what we’re doing to make things better and what they can do to help.

The public will then be motivated to take actions that will support vulnerable children and young people - helping them to thrive.

About us:

The new Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki is dedicated to supporting any child or young person in New Zealand whose wellbeing is at significant risk of harm now, or in the future.

A child-centred approach is at the heart of everything we do. This starts and ends with the voices of the children and young people we are here to support.

These voices inform any decision-making that affects them, at both and individual and systemic level. This approach also means that, at every step of our work, we ask ourselves “Is this the right thing to do for children and young people?”

Skills and experience:

You’ll have substantial experience building a strong, loyal and engaged social media following for a not-for-profit/cause-orientated or Government organisation.

You’ll be totally up to date with social media best practice.

You’ll have a solid track record of creating shareworthy content that organically reaches audiences that are substantially larger than your immediate followers.

You’ll be experienced and comfortable treading the fine line between being organised enough to plan ahead, but agile enough to jump on emerging trends or change tack when required.

You’ll have solid experience measuring impact, sentiment and emerging risks – then taking appropriate actions.

In addition to all this – you’ll have experience creating user guides and policies – then training other staff (not direct reports) throughout an organisation.

What we offer

We offer a dedicated and supportive team, flexible work options and the opportunity to apply your skills and experience to improve and enhance the wellbeing of some of NZ's most disadvantaged children and young people.

If you want to be part of changing the way New Zealand supports our most vulnerable please apply now.

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for: Super Rugby by Sugar & Partners

Why we like it: Super Rugby is typically a fast-paced game, but to promote the season Sugar & Partners have slowed down the action to ensure audiences don't miss a thing. Despite the change of pace, the excited fans jumping around, motocross rider and confetti ensure the campaign continues to build on the hype generated in previous campaigns. The music by local artist Kings also helps to provide energy—did you spot him in the crowd?

Who's it for:The New Zealand Olympic Committee by Saatchi & Saatchi

Why we like it: Competing on a global stage is no easy feat, and that's before cold temperatures, wind and snow are added. This campaign takes New Zealanders behind the scenes of the Winter Olympics to see what it takes get there and hopefully win a medal. In this particular video, featuring Janina Kuzma, the choice to not add music and leave the wind as the only sound emphasises the harsh conditions she trains in and her dedication to the sport.

Who's it for: Kiwibank by Hello

Why we like it: Kiwibank is bidding farewell to student giveaways and acknowledging the demographic is not only motivated by freebies. Instead, this campaign, featuring Shortland Street's Jayden Daniels, ties into the brand's wider campaigns about investing in a locally owned bank. And if that message alone isn't enough to make students sit up and listen, the inclusion of Daniels taking his shirt off is sure to generate some attention.
