Digital and Content Assistant – Fixed-Term (Six months)

Te Waihanga is small (but mighty) and hasn’t been around long by government standards, but our job is as big as it gets, helping New Zealand get the right infrastructure, whether it’s transport connections that get us from a to b, water and power connections needed to support affordable homes, or schools and hospitals that support our communities. 

All this is why we need you. 

We’re after someone to contribute to the development of a new Infrastructure Commission website and supporting our digital channels. In this fixed-term role you will work closely with our Senior Digital and Content Advisor to prepare and load content to the new site. There is also opportunity to support our other digital channels such as social media, podcasts and webinars. Prior experience or a willingness to grow skills across a range of channels would be beneficial.

To do this you will be a whizz at things like:

  • Experience in managing web content and using Content Management Systems
  • Social media monitoring skills
  • Experience across a range of digital tools.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

Mō te tīma / About our team

Te Waihanga is what’s called an Autonomous Crown Entity or, even better, an ACE. We think about the whole infrastructure system - roads, waterpipes, powerlines, you name it – and our job is to give advice and uncover the insights that can make it all work as well as it can, supporting an Aotearoa that’s great for the generations to come.  

Our people are smart and passionate about this stuff.  They’re friendly and, this being a relatively small organisation, it’s easy to work with anyone here and to have an impact. We don’t do hierarchy or stand on ceremony.  

We also value our people, and it’s important to us that you feel welcome, supported, and respected.
