New Zealand Red Cross is proud to be part of the largest humanitarian network in the world. Working behind the scenes and in plain sight, everywhere, every day, they are doing good. Wherever you are, New Zealand Red Cross is right there too, providing assistance to vulnerable people both here and overseas.


As one of three Community Fundraising Advisors, you will support the development and delivery of a portfolio of effective and innovative community fundraising products and events, including the National Street Appeal, Red Cross Journey (an online campaign) and Resilience Ultra Marathon.

In addition, you will work with and enable members of the community, including Red Cross members, and those who volunteer their time to effectively deliver locally based fundraising. To support this, you will contribute to the development of a toolkit of community fundraising products and activities that they can use, in order to raise the profile and income of the NZ Red cross.

It’s an exciting time to join the New Zealand Red Cross. They’ve been through a significant period of change as they refocus on their core work, and this position represents an opportunity to make an important contribution to enabling the New Zealand Red Cross to continue helping vulnerable people and those affected by disaster and conflicts.
