Assist in all aspects of our individual and group programmes with marketing & administrative support of our close-knit, fast-paced, creative organisation.

Dance & Arts Therapy NZ (DTNZ) currently have an opportunity for a highly capable Marketing & Administration Assistant to join our close-knit and fast paced team. In this role you will support the team with the coordination of individual and group programmes by offering marketing & administrative support. The role will initially be a three month contract and then offered as a part time (25 - 30 hours per week) role, once the required hours are established. This is a junior position ($25 p/h) that has scope to grow into a larger role for the right candidate and will be based in our Onehunga office, however there can be flexible work arrangements available.

You will have the chance to contribute your skills, drive, ability to engage others and enthusiasm while progressing DTNZ’s commitment to continually improve its service delivery to the communities we serve. You will work alongside the Operations Manager, Programmes Coordinator, admin volunteers & a diverse creative therapy team, with the support of the Advisory Board who govern the organisation.

At Dance & Arts Therapy NZ (DTNZ) we believe that with creativity and collaboration, together we can support and empower vulnerable communities. We use the powerful modalities of the Arts and Dance to bring connection, nurturing and growth to people with disabilities, children with autism, children in at risk/low income areas and people of all ages living with the aftermath of sexual abuse-related trauma. We provide group and individual programmes across the Auckland Canterbury & Northland regions. DTNZ is a small but growing Community Organisation, with a dynamic, creative and fun team of around 60 part-time therapists, assistant therapists and volunteers.

We are looking for someone energetic with administrative and marketing experience to fulfil this core role. Experience using Xero would also be an advantage but not a requirement. This is a position with a lot of variety - from assisting with ACC client and therapy team administration, helping to market our programmes, assisting with our events and a multitude of internal and external communication needs.

The successful applicant will need to be super organised, focused, a quick thinker and be able to use their initiative to work independently. We require someone who can manage their time effectively multitask many different components. The key capabilities and experience we are looking for:

1+ years administration experience.

1+ years marketing experience.

Exceptional attention to detail.

Ability to confidently and professionally represent DTNZ to potential and existing clients and stakeholders.

Excellent verbal and written skills.

Excellent time management skills.

Proficient in Microsoft packages particularly word and excel.

Extremely computer literate and confident with technology including social media.

Experience with Google Drive, Xero, Wordpress, Infoodle and design software desirable.

At DTNZ we work together to achieve amazing results for the community. Last year we had over 8,000 attendances to our therapeutic programmes. Come join us and help contribute to the lives of people in our communities in a meaningful way.
