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: Vogel's by Shine and Curious Films

Why we like it: Achieving diversity in a campaign to truly reflect what a country looks like is no easy task, with many efforts coming across as contrived, fabricated efforts. However, this spot by Vogel's avoids all these pitfalls by bringing a collection of eight exceptional stories together around a single table. In doing so, the bread brand shows us what it means to be a Kiwi at a time when the country is changing. And it's a message that's resonated with consumers, with Facebook comments including remarks like "a truly beautiful advert", "the best advert I have seen in a very long time", "brilliant effort to illustrate how wonderful, unique and diverse NZers are" and "talk about bring a tear to your eye". 

Who's it for: BMW by Flying Fish

Why we like it: Recognise Karangahape Road and Fort Lane in this spot? No need for a double take, it's them. Not only does this spot showcase the new BMW, it also turns Auckland into a driver's dream, with empty streets and a long unoccupied straight across the Harbour Bridge. Even if it's not quite a true representation of the usually traffic-filled city that cars crawl through on most days, it's a great opportunity for our local city to be seen around the world as well as the production company Flying Fish.

Who's it for:Whittaker's by Assignment Group.

Why we like it: It's been a while since we've seen Nigella Lawson front a Whittaker's campaign and this time she's joined by British comedians Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley and Bill Bailey who all appear to fizz over the brand's new Destinations range. While Lawson has typically taken a sultry tone in Whittaker's spots, this time, she barely gets a word in as her friends take more of 'a children in a candy store' approach to building hype over flavours like 'Nicaraguan Heirloom Dark Chocolate', 'Italian Piedmont Hazelnut' and 'Caramelised Pecans, Waffle and Canadian Maple Syrup'.
