Below are our current vacancies: 


 

Graphic Designer (Kaiwhakatauira Whakanikoniko) - Permanent, full-time (37.5 hours per week)


He angitūtanga: The opportunity

Did you think you'd use your design degree for good, and ended up creating endless corporate stationary and advertising for an organisation that didn't match your values or creative goals? This could finally be the job you always wanted.

This is a rare opportunity to bring your creativity to a well-respected community organisation with a fantastic work culture. We are a sex-positive and creative organisation that pushes the boundaries as we look to improve the lives of gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex men (GBMSM), Māori, people living with HIV and other key priority populations.

You’ll need to have great foundational graphic design skills, but more importantly, a creative mind that can bring fun, sexy and engaging ideas to our mahi.

One day you might be illustrating phallic objects, the next day you’re advertising a support group for people living with HIV, and in the middle, you might be helping to cut together a video on Electro-play BDSM. This is your chance to advance your skills and career, and have a lot of fun doing it.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Provide design and marketing advice across the organisation and deliver the annual plan for the communications function

  • Understanding of social media content curation
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Basic video editing skills, or an eagerness to try/learn
  • Experience working with, understanding of, or commitment to, gay and bisexual and other men who have sex with men
  • Ability to work and communicate effectively with the diverse groups impacted by HIV in Aotearoa
  • A passion to make our communities feel seen in our communications

 

While not essential, it would be beneficial to also be able to demonstrate:

  • Lived experience in one or more of our priority populations (men who have sex with men, people living with HIV, Māori, people from high HIV prevalence countries)
  • Knowledge of HIV, sexual health issues and specific health issues facing men who have sex with men in Aotearoa
  • Previous experience in HIV prevention work

 

Ngā āhuatanga kei a mātou: What we offer

There are many, many benefits to this role, including but not limited to:

  • One week of additional paid employer holidays on top of the minimum four weeks annual leave and public holidays
  • A flexible working policy that helps support your unique work-life balance needs. This could include working from home for a portion of your week.
  • Attractive starting salary of $66,365, with annual progression up a 5-step salary scale that is competitive in the not-for-profit market
  • Reimbursement of public transport fares and contribution to the purchase of a bike or micro mobility device (e-bike, scooter, etc.)
  • Reimbursement for home office equipment of up to $800
  • Get to make a real difference in our community
  • Professional development opportunities

Support and Therapeutic Service Lead - Permanent, full-time (37.5 hours per week)


He angitūtanga: The opportunity

This is a new opportunity at Burnett Foundation Aotearoa to leverage your expertise and leadership to inform the delivery and growth of our high-quality national support services.

The Services & Outreach team seek to continue to evolve and expand our support and therapeutic service options to best meet the differing needs of our priority populations. You will develop and lead a spectrum of tailored and targeted support and therapeutic service offerings that equally value the positioning and importance of differing models and modalities including individual, peer and group process workstreams.

In this role you will have the ability to shape and refine many aspects of care throughout the client journey and ensure our services are client centred. You will also be committed to the delivery of offerings that deeply resonate with the populations we serve. The spectrum of offerings you will take responsibility for will begin at the initial points of contact or referral and include assessment of client needs. This will inform the offering of appropriate option/s or external referral paths, on-going client engagement, and – importantly - the client service evaluation process.

Another key area of influence within the scope of this role will be your ability to expand knowledge and capacity through delivering supported workforce and sector education and training for a wide range of stakeholders to support their development. Furthermore, your ability to communicate insights and key themes, trends and areas impacting the populations we serve with internal stakeholders will inform the support and therapeutic services and organisation’s strategic directions to achieve operational outcomes and deliverables.

You will bring your lived experience and passion for empowering communities and individuals to a leading, well-respected community organisation that has a strong focus on the wider health needs of gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex men (GBMSM) and other key priority groups. Opportunities like this don’t come around often.

In this role you will report to the Service and Outreach Manager and work with peers and our contract counsellors/ group facilitators to provide seamless offerings with multiple arms to meet the needs of the communities we serve.

  • Key Responsibilities:
    Take oversight and responsibility for the development of Burnett Foundations Aotearoa support and therapeutic services including supporting the continued journey towards the diversification of our offerings
  • Complete initial client referral conversations to understand client priorities and needs, and access potential fit with differing internal service offerings or appropriately refer onto external providers, where appropriate.
  • Focus on developing and offering services (in collaboration with other providers if required) to parts of our core communities who have ‘quieter voices’ and are underserved and those who historically have not had access to Burnett Foundation Aotearoa services.
  • Drive continuity and service quality through the refinement or development of standard operating procedures (SOPs)
  • Support the development and have oversight of differing peer offerings for core communities.
  • Engage with our pool of contract counsellors to facilitate a national provision of in-person and one to one on-line group service delivery.
  • Play a key part in linking in with and informing the broader organisation on the issues experienced by priority communities and better ways in which our marketing content and communications could talk to and reflect these realities.
  • Deliver training and education programmes to stakeholder groups.
  • Support Peer/Counselling Interns to ensure our counselling workforce is increasing to meet the needs of gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men, and people living with HIV.
  • Ensure that clients with needs that cannot be met through Burnett Foundation Aotearoa services are provided with appropriate referral options and/or connected to established providers.

  • Experience working with, understanding of, or commitment to, diverse communities including gay and bisexual, takatāpuhi and other men who have sex with men.
