Job Description

Executive Assistant for Deputy Chief Executive - Youth Justice

Full Time, Permanent, Wellington
Do you like working in a dynamic, fast paced environment where no two days are the same. Are you highly organised and solutions focused?
About this role: 
Executive Assistant roles like this don't come along very often! You'll have fun, be challenged but also have a feeling of pride whilst you play your part in making a positive impact on the lives of NZ tamariki and rangatahi. Having worked within an Executive Assistant role previously, you will bring your own energy to this Executive Assistant role, but will understand the importance of getting the basics right. 


Our Deputy Chief Executive and Youth Justice Director need a proactive individual that can help turn a busy schedule into a structured, organised and well-planned day. You will be a pleasant negotiator who works hard to accommodate everyone when organising/rearranging meetings. If something urgent arrives you'll spot this and notify the DCE immediately. You'll exercise good judgment and often go out of your way to seek advice if something is unclear or to get things ready for the DCE who you will support.


This will mean always being one step ahead to ensure all information and resources are at hand. Your day will also be kept busy providing administrative support to the wider Services for children and families operational team when required.  


You will need: 

  • Comprehensive administrative skills
  • Strong ability to problem-solve for positive outcomes
  • A welcoming and supportive demeanour
  • Experience in a similar role
  • Ability to adapt and adopt to a multi-cultural approach
  • Ability to work in confidentiality
  • A supportive and professional approach to internal and external stakeholders


We can offer you:

  • A good work life balance and the importance of maintaining both as well as a challenging, fascinating and gratifying career
  • A cohesive team environment, discounts on Southern Cross Health insurance  
  • A supportive workplace where our Executive Assistants all work in together
  • A competitive salary range $55,475 – $83,211
