Manager for a small NGO – Wellington Women’s Health Collective

Job Description
Who we are
The Wellington Women’s Health Collective is a small not-for-profit organisation that has at its heart the well-being of women in the Wellington region. It was formed in 1986 and since then has become an established part of the Wellington community.
The Collective provides support, referrals, information and a counselling service to thousands of women, more than three-quarters of whom are on very low incomes. Our services are all offered free to clients.
The role
As a result of a recent review of our operations, we have created a Manager role to lead the Collective. This is a key role that will be responsible for leading staff and volunteers and for day-to-day operational management.
The Manager will oversee our planning, financial and funding strategies and will represent the Collective in developing its community profile and in its relationships with funders and other stakeholders.

The role
will report to the Collective’s Board and represents an exciting opportunity to lead a small but well-established provider of support and counselling health services during a time when such work is greatly needed.
Because of the nature of our work, all of our staff and volunteers are women.
This is a part-time role for 25 hours a week. Daily hours will be agreed with the successful applicant, but we are looking at 5 hours a day across the week.
Your skills and experience
We are seeking someone with a strategic vision and who has management experience, ideally in a grant-funded and not-for-profit environment. Experience in working with volunteers is also desirable.
You should also bring to the role:
• A leadership style that fosters respect and credibility
• Experience in developing and managing budgets
• An ability to establish and maintain positive working relationships
• Very good problem-solving skills
• Excellent communication skills and a collaborative work approach
• An understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and a commitment to practising its principles in the workplace
• An ability to influence and persuade
• A high level of awareness of women’s issues
This is an opportunity that should appeal to an experienced manager who wishes to make a difference for vulnerable women in our community who are at risk and need empathic support, advice or intervention.
