Online Communications Assistant

Have you heard? We're doing things differently at Waikato District Council. We're overhauling our operations, breaking down hierarchy, smashing silos and improving community planning. We're cultivating an innovative learning culture, and pushing co-design when it comes to our community.

To make this change successful we need great people. Are you one of them?

Who are we looking for

We have an exciting opportunity for a driven and passionate part-time Online Communications Assistant to join our Communications, Marketing and Engagement team. As part of this role, you will support the Online Communication Advisor to develop, review and maintain content on our websites and across all our social channels. You will work closely with Council teams to support online communication with various activities and projects. This role has very flexible hours, so if that's important to you, that could be a real bonus.

As part of the team, you will provide communications, marketing and engagement advice and support to the Waikato District Council. You will work closely with your peers and colleagues internally and externally to ensure the successful execution of all communications administration and general communications related tasks while upholding proactive and friendly customer service at all times.

As the ideal candidate, you will have communications and marketing training with a relevant qualification. To be successful in this role, website content management and Photoshop/InDesign skills are essential. If you are an experienced self-starter who really enjoys working in a fast paced team environment, focused on delivering outstanding customer service, and you are an efficient organiser with a "can do" attitude, then we want to talk with you!

Why join our team

Our head office is based in north Waikato's Ngaruawahia, just 10 minutes from Hamilton. You've got the benefits of an easy commute, free parking, work-life balance and the chance to hit the Hakarimatas on your lunch break. What more could you want?
