Kaitohutohu Whanake – Kaupapa Māori / Māori Heritage Advisor

Based in Wellington

Do you have a passion for, knowledge of and commitment to Māori heritage - and equally importantly an eye for the future?

The Kaitohutohu Whanake – Kaupapa Māori is responsible for supporting the vision of Tapuwae by developing future-focused, innovative thinking about how to promote and engage a range of audiences around Māori heritage, and contextualising this within the organisation’s priorities. The role, based in Wellington, is within the Organisational Development team and provides support across a broad range of functions including media and communications, publications, membership and fundraising, collections and project advice with a focus on connecting the organisation with Māori stakeholders and heritage services.

You’ll be a team player, flexible, and adept at developing and implementing new initiatives, and a champion at weaving together Māori and non-Māori perspectives.  Ideally, you’ll be fluent in te reo Māori, have strong existing networks in the Māori community and have qualifications in a relevant discipline, such as Māori studies, heritage, project management, communications and/or media studies.

The salary range for this position is $73,000 - $82,000. Read the job description.
