Mindfulness and Meditation Plus+: Auckland

A free, in-person, six-week mindfulness programme for people living with HIV - starting Tuesday 25 May


If you want to be one of the driving forces behind the elimination of new HIV transmissions in New Zealand by 2025, then we are the workplace for you.

The New Zealand AIDS Foundation has been at the forefront of HIV prevention in Aotearoa for the past 30 years.

With the same passion as those who have come before us, we’re continuing to work hard to prevent HIV transmission, reduce stigma, and maximise the wellbeing of those most affected.  Through our community engagement, behaviour-change marketing campaigns, testing, and therapeutic support services, we reach people across the country.

The NZAF offers the chance to work in a fast-paced, high-performing, and driven team that is committed to biculturalism and is an equal opportunities employer. The NZAF serves all people regardless of sexual and gender identity, age, background, or religious belief.

Below are our current vacancies: 

Are you a health promoter or service coordinator in Christchurch? We've got a permanent, part-time role for you (30 hours)!

We need a passionate health promoter or community change-maker to join our Christchurch team and help us eliminate new HIV transmissions in Aotearoa.

This is a rare opportunity to bring your passion for health promotion or community service to a leading and well-respected health and community centre that has a strong focus on the health needs of gay and bisexual men. Opportunities like this don’t come around often.

This is a diverse role working with all facets of health promotion and service delivery. One day you will be working directly with clients to provide HIV and STI testing services that exceed their expectations, the next you might be providing an education workshop to a community group or working with a community venue to expand our reach.

The Services and Outreach Coordinator will:

  • Provide client-centred HIV & STI testing services, with a particular focus on gay and bisexual men.
  • Deliver quality education to communities and healthcare workers that will make a real difference.

  • Coordinate with community venues and other organisations to increase the reach of NZAF services, education messages and resources.

We’re looking for someone who can demonstrate:

  • A tertiary qualification or technical training in at least one of: Health Promotion, Population/Public Health, Community Work, Community Development or Allied Health. Equivalent work experience may be considered in lieu of a tertiary qualification.
  • Experience in developing and implementing health service or health promotion projects.
  • Experience working with, understanding of, or commitment to, gay and bisexual men.
  • Experience in customer service with a strong client-centred approach.
  • Ability to work and communicate effectively with the diverse groups impacted by HIV in New Zealand.
  • Ability to consistently adhere to the principles of confidentiality and ethical practice within a health setting.
  • Experience holding key relationships with stakeholders to support programmes and activities.

While not essential, it would be beneficial to also be able to demonstrate:

  • Knowledge of HIV, sexual health issues and specific health issues facing men who have sex with men in New Zealand.
  • Lived experience in one or more of NZAF’s priority populations (men who have sex with men, people living with HIV, Māori, people from high HIV prevalence countries).
  • Previous experience in HIV prevention work.
  • Knowledge and/or experience of the not-for-profit sector.

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

  • One week of additional paid employer holidays on top of the minimum four weeks annual leave.
  • A competitive compensation package with a salary between $61,385 - $68,208 pro-rata per annum.
  • Be part of NZ’s largest community organisation serving gay and bisexual men and other key groups.
  • Get to make a real difference in our communities.
  • Professional development opportunities.
