Protecting our precious places


(You must be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident to apply for positions with the QEII National Trust)

Communications Manager

This is a newly created position to implement and manage the communications strategy for a public good organisation.

Queen Elizabeth II National Trust is an independent statutory organisation and registered charity set up to preserve precious New Zealand landscapes through protective covenants. The Trust partners with landowners to protect native species, forests, wetlands, and other special areas for the benefit of present and future generations. QEII covenants protect biodiversity across 70 per cent of New Zealand’s privately owned lowland landscapes.

For this exciting and challenging role, we are looking for a good all-rounder, tactician and problem solver with the ability to identify opportunities to promote the Trust widely. You will need great writing skills, experience in social/new media and a results focus. You’ll be able to work with minimal supervision but also have the skill to lead others when required. You should have sound professional networks and the confidence to work with the senior management team and Board.

The successful applicant may have 3-5 years of experience in a communications role, but we will also consider a ‘go-getter’ from a different discipline who has the energy, commitment, skills, personality and business experience to grab this role and make it their own.

Not enough New Zealanders know the wonderful work that QEII National Trust undertakes to protect our special places for future generations. The Communications Manager we appoint will change that situation, raise public awareness, build credibility and help inspire more New Zealanders to support the work QEII National Trust undertakes.

If you are up for the challenge and believe you have the personality, attitude and skills to do a great job in this role, please email your CV and a cover letter to by 8.00am on Monday 26 June 2017.
