Job Opportunities

The New Zealand AIDS Foundation (NZAF) has been at the forefront of the community response to HIV in Aotearoa for more than 30 years.

In response to the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s and originally known as The AIDS Support Network, we joined the fight for the decriminalisation of homosexuality and for the rights of those living with HIV and the broader Rainbow community.

With the same passion and commitment as those who came before us, NZAF is still mobilising and empowering communities affected by HIV to prevent transmission, reduce stigma and maximise health and well-being.

If you want to be one of the driving forces behind the elimination of new HIV transmissions in New Zealand by 2025, then read on to see our current vacancies.

Fixed-term employment or contractor - December 2018 to September 2019 (9-months)

We’re looking for an expert fundraiser to join our team for a parental leave cover. This is a fixed-term employment opportunity; however we would be open to talking about a full-time contractor.

This is an opportunity to tackle one of the most significant human challenges of our time. Our supporters give from their pockets to help us, so naturally they are the best sort of person to get to work with every day!

The Senior Fundraising Specialist will be responsible for leading the execution of NZAF’s 5-year fundraising plan that will ensure increased income from fundraising activities to support NZAF’s work, including:

  • Lead on regular giving acquisition and the supporter development programme
  • Mentor and coach the fundraising team to deliver the fundraising programme
  • Lead on the development of key collateral, communications and events to support the programme

This role will be working directly with the Marketing, Communications and Fundraising Manager.

There are many, many benefits to this role, including but not limited to:

  • Flexible working hours
  • Four weeks annual leave (pro rata)
  • An additional week of employer holidays
  • Professional development opportunities
  • An endless supply of condoms smile
  • Work-life balance
