Job Description

An exciting new opportunity has arisen to provide high-quality communications, research and policy support to Priyanca Radhakrishnan in the Onehunga office. We are looking for a candidate who is self-motivated, has strong media skills and an understanding within ethnic affairs. This position offers real variety and plays a vital behind-the-scenes part in the parliamentary process.

You'll have the ability to communicate complex issues in everyday language via a range of media and communication channels. This role is a varied and multifaceted one where on any given day you will be tasked with anything from drafting speeches and press releases, to engaging with the community, to assisting in the development of Priyanca Radhakrishnan ethnic affairs communications policy and researching her particular areas of interest. You will have demonstrated experience in analysing and interpreting data and a good knowledge of research methodology.

You've got in-depth understanding of the ethnic affairs community landscape in Auckland as well as a firm grasp on the current political landscape. You appreciate the sometimes unpredictable nature of this environment and instead of letting it faze you, you thrive on it - putting your proactive, calm, and flexible personality to good use. You're happy to work autonomously and are well known for your resilient and unflappable nature.

Parliamentary Service is focused on excellence and innovation and we are interested in you if you have well developed communication skills, resilience and the ability to remain calm under pressure. Our ideal person will have knowledge of the political environment and parliamentary procedure.

This role is for up to 40 hours per week. Some flexibility in hours will be required, particularly when the House is sitting. This is an events-based, fixed-term role linked to the term of the Member of Parliament.
