Work For Us

Content Specialist - Life Education Trust NZ


The Opportunity:

Life Education gives young people knowledge and tools to make positive choices — both now and in the future. 

Over 30 years we’ve built a reputation through our expertise and impact in delivering health education to young people. We’re building on this to be leaders in key areas of young people’s mental health and wellbeing. 

Life Education Trust is uniquely positioned to lead conversations in health education for young people. The Trust is used by 86% of primary and intermediate schools in NZ to support their tamariki.

We want to strengthen our relationships with adults and collaborate with more partners and organisations. To do this, Life Education needs to strengthen its voice as a lead health educator, while continuing to support children and families in communities throughout NZ. 

About the role:

An exciting new role has been developed for an exceptional Content Specialist to help us tell our story. You’ll have a passion for storytelling across a range of PR and communications applications, and a well-developed eye for editorial news value and the skills to bring it to life. This will involve producing content and telling our stories to inspire our partners and community. This could include blogs, articles, white papers, social media posts, videos and more. 

Skills and experience:

You’ll be a self-starter with initiative and enjoy autonomy but understand the importance of being part of a team.

With experience under your belt in a similar content or media role, you'll have the curiosity to find great stories together with an eye for what makes great content. You'll be tech-savvy with a keen interest in what makes digital communication platforms perform at their best, and you'll keep your finger on the pulse to make sure we're constantly improving. A knowledge of the New Zealand media landscape is a plus.

These skills will have been developed through a Degree or professional qualifications focused on journalism, communications or marketing.

What we offer:

We’re offering flexible part time work hours in a fixed term role for 12 months based in our central city Wellington office, with a small team of equally passionate people.

You will have the opportunity to work within an organisation making an impact on young people’s lives and will have a vast array of potential stories to create.
