This role is responsible for developing, implementing and coordinating a dynamic and innovative Rangatahi programme using our Te Hiringa Tamariki framework. UNICEF Aotearoa aims to have a strong network of Rangatahi around the motu/nation that also has close associations with Rangatahi in the Pacific, Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste where we do programmatic work with leaders of those nations.

The Rangatahi Programme Manager will build and liaise closely with the Rangatahi Reference Rōpū (group) and our Child Rights Team to coordinate activities and create innovative thinking and advocacy to enable UNICEF AOTEAROA to respond to the needs of Tamariki and Rangatahi.

Current specific projects include:

  • Rangatahi Voice: facilitating transformational communication with Rangatahi exploring humanitarianism, social inclusion, diversity, climate change and ending racism.
  • Te Hiringa Tamariki (Implicit Bias) Programme that is presently being developed.

These two project areas will have a range of activities that include strategic events and development of innovation and digital resources that provide platforms for Rangatahi advocacy.

We are looking for a high energy person with a great attitude and committed to uplifting the voices of Tamariki and Rangatahi in Aotearoa. It is important that this person is professional, agile and flexible in how they communicate and engage with young people and key stakeholders.

Key to this role is your ability to work in a whānau centred way that enables you to engage with young people, whānau, hapū, iwi and communities through the tikanga process -‘kanohi kitea’, which seeks to ensure you are present, participating and contributing to the diversity and needs of young people in Aotearoa- New Zealand. This may include communicating digitally through social media platforms.

This is an amazing opportunity for the right person to share their skills and attributes to further uplift the voice of Tamariki and Rangatahi locally, whilst creating global opportunities.
