Below are our current vacancies: 


Digital Marketing Specialist

Full-time (37.5 hours per week)

Did you think you'd use your marketing degree for good, only to end up doing digital marketing for insurance bundles or fad organic sodas that you don’t really care about? This could finally be the job you always wanted. We make content with OnlyFans creators, review spanking toys, and teach people how to put condoms on effectively – you’re not going to find an opportunity like this every day.

We’re on the hunt for a data-savvy digital marketer who gets turned on by analysing data, learning from content performance, and website optimization.

Burnett Foundation Aotearoa (formerly New Zealand AIDS Foundation) has been at the forefront of the community response to HIV in Aotearoa for more than 35 years. In response to the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s, we joined the fight for the decriminalisation of homosexuality and for the rights of those living with HIV and the broader rainbow community.

With the same passion and commitment as those who came before us, we are still mobilising and empowering communities affected by HIV to prevent transmission, reduce stigma, and maximise health and well-being.
