Campaign Organiser

Thank you for your application/expression of interest in the fixed term role of campaign organiser with the PSA.

Our incumbent campaigns organiser is leaving the PSA and we are looking for someone who can drive our Stand Together campaign through to the next election while we review how we organise campaigns for the future. Details about the Stand Together campaign can be found here.

While this sets out the possible range of duties for the position, it is our expectation during the fixed term that the successful applicant will focus primarily on the Stand Together campaign. We have also arranged for an organiser to focus on campaigning on the health sector in Auckland through until the election, and the campaign organiser will need to work with that person as well as with the national secretaries, assistant secretaries, organisers and the policy and communications teams of the PSA.

An application form can be found here.

Applications close at 5pm Tuesday 4 October.

Completed applications should be emailed to liz.byron@psa.org.nz or posted to Liz Byron, PSA, PO Box 3817, Wellington 6140.
