Triennial Elections Fixed Term Roles, Advisory and Support Centre (Wellington National Office)

30 January 2019 

Kia ora koutou,

  • Join a great culture and supportive work environment
  • A role with a lot of variety and challenge
  • Be the first point of contact for the 2019 Triennial Election

We're looking for advisers to join our Advisory and Support Centre team who are the first port of call for school boards for advice on governance and employment matters.  The role is specifically for the up and coming triennial elections in 2019. You will be responsible for advising school boards and their returning officers on all matters relevant to the election process. The triennial school board elections are one of the largest run elections in New Zealand outside of the general and local body elections.

Our service really makes a difference, enabling boards of trustees to govern effectively and act as good employers so that the board can focus on supporting every student achieving their highest possible educational potential. You'll be using your excellent customer service skills and resilience to deal with a high volume of queries on a daily basis.

This is a great opportunity for someone with experience or familiarity working with similar elections or who has been on a school board.

We want to hear from you if you've got:

  • Experience working in a busy service based environment
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Ability to interpret legislation and other documentation
  • Willingness to learn and to keep up to date with changing trends and legislation.
  • Commitment to work collaboratively in a team

We are looking to recruit on a fulltime, fixed term basis although we would be willing to consider a part time role for the right candidate. The duration of the contract is mid-February until the end of June 2019.

For further information about the role please contact Robyn Davis, Manager Advisory and Support Centre on 021 197 0844 or by emailing

Applications close at 9am, Friday 8 February 2019.


Nga mihi,

Robyn Davis
Manager Advisory and Support Centre
