Two fundraising vacancies open

9 Feb, 2018

We are a small and fun (read quirky) team who are committed to working together with the community to raise awareness around mental health issues in our community and that’s why this role is so important! Fundraising is the backbone to the success of the organisation as we need donations from the public to help us in our quest! Therefore this role is kind of the backbone of the backbone in a sense!

The Mental Health Foundation is New Zealand’s only national mental health charity. Our purpose is to create a society where all people have the support, resources and behaviours that allow them to feel good, function well and sustain their mental health.

We're seeking two vibrant can-do people (Events and Fundraising Coordinator and Events and Fundraising Administrator) to join our small but lively fundraising team to work with a large and growing number of people and businesses that want to hold fundraisers and make donations towards our work. The PD might read differently but this is what you’ll be actually doing on a daily basis:

  • Chatting! People call us and email all the time wanting help and advice on their fundraising. Everyone can help donate, and you’ll love bringing awareness to our cause, and convince them to help!
  • Juggling many balls in the air at one time
  • Herding cats (not literally) and working well with others (literally)
  • Merging documents that are sent out for fundraising (with lots of different tones, meaning you will need format like a trooper)
  • Smashing out spreadsheets and loving it! You’re the Monica of the office, and you’ll love things being organised
  • Organising events or helping others organise their events, schmoozing and winning hearts and minds.

Team fit is super important, but before we get carried away you’ll need to be well versed in the following:

  • Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint to an advanced level
  • Administration tasks including data entry
  • Customer service skills
  • Accurate record keeping
  • Communicating effectively and confidently by telephone and email.

Awesome feel good vibes are on offer, as is an awesome team environment who are supportive, inclusive and passionate! Mt Eden location, heaps of cool places to eat and drink as well as exercise are nearby!
