Supporting the running of Ginny Andersen’s Hutt South Electorate Office in Petone, you’ll be part of a team ensuring everything runs smoothly day in and day out. This role is multifaceted and challenging with no two days the same. You’ll be stepping into an environment that is unique, exciting, and rewarding.

Some of the duties you’ll be responsible for include:

  • Generating articles for local media, and the MP’s electorate newsletters
  • Managing the booking of media advertising
  • Networking to build and maintain strong relationships in the community
  • Monitoring news and social media, and creating content for the MP’s social media
  • Providing high quality advice and advocacy in person and in correspondence to constituents
  • Your friends and whanau describe you as calm, proactive and resilient. It goes without saying you’re someone who’s empathetic and respectful. You will lend your ear to constituents to make them feel heard and supported.

    A clear communicator, you will thrive on engaging with a wide range of stakeholders, and your strong communications skills will stand you in good stead to take a proactive lead on creating print content, advertising and social media. Though the role is apolitical, some understanding of the political landscape may prove valuable in supporting the MP.

    You’re a team player who will enjoy collaborating with others, while comfortable working independently in the office; and you are well known for your resilience, initiative and sense of calm in getting the job done.

    The role will call for some travel within the wider electorate, so it is important that you have a full, clean driver licence.

    To ensure our people feel supported and enabled to develop their knowledge and careers, you will receive a Parliamentary Service induction which will set you up to succeed within this environment, as well as ongoing learning and development opportunities.

    This is an events-based, fixed-term role linked to the Member of Parliament, working 40 hours per week. Some flexibility in hours may be required.

    The appointing salary band for this role is $54,712.00 to $68,390.00 per annum. Appointments will be based on your skills and experience.
