  • Programme Officer, ChildFund NZ

    Added: 28 / 06 / 2016

    Seeking an enthusiastic international development professional

    ChildFund New Zealand is an international child-focussed development agency that works with some of the world’s most deprived, excluded and vulnerable children.

    ChildFund New Zealand is seeking a qualified international development graduate, preferably with some experience working in a developing country or with an NGO, who is passionate about child-focussed community development and wants a job where they can contribute, learn and grow. You will be working alongside a team of great professionals – but you will also need to know international and community development theory to contribute from Day One.

    Your role will involve assisting the Programme Manager with programme management and planning, supporting and advocating for our overseas partners and identifying appropriate projects to support. You will be required to work with other members of the Programmes Team, including the Programme Director, Grants Manager, and Development Effectiveness Advisor, as well as other ChildFund teams in the delivery of our Strategic Plan. This means we’re looking for a team player – but with resourcefulness and tenacity, and the ability to tackle projects on your own, sometimes with little support. You must have excellent analytical, communication and writing skills. We need a Programme Officer on the team who is organised, accurate and with a keen eye for detail, who is highly personable with excellent cross-cultural communication skills, and who is not afraid to put in long hours when there are deadlines to meet.

    We would like to fill the role of Programme Officer before the end of July. The position is based in Auckland. Some travel will be required.

    A full position description is available on by clicking here.

    If you are interested in applying for this role, please submit your CV with a copy of your qualification in International Development, and a covering letter explaining:

    - Your match to the qualifications, attitudes, attributes and skills outlined in the position description.

    - A paragraph on your aspirations for your future, and for working in international development.

    - A paragraph on the person or group who inspires your thinking on international development issues (a link to a key paper that they’ve written would be good).

    - A paragraph on why you’d like to work for ChildFund specifically.

    Applications will close at: 8am Friday 8th July and interviews will be scheduled for the week of Monday 11th July.

    Only candidates legally entitled to work in New Zealand will be considered for an interview.

    For further information please contact Programme Manager Sally Angelson on +64 9 366 2265 or
