Relationships Representative (tele-fundraising/administration)

25 hours per week

Are you interested in making a difference to those living in poverty?  Do you have great people skills, administrative experience and organisational flair? Does part time working suit your current lifestyle?

Oxfam New Zealand is part of a global organisation dedicated to overcoming poverty and social injustice. Working with people caught in extreme poverty (especially in the Pacific and Asia), we provide practical support with essentials like safe water, basic education and a reliable food supply.  And when natural disasters or conflicts strike, Oxfam is there, not only to save lives but to help communities recover.  We also seek to ensure there’s lasting solutions by advocating for change to the structures and policies that keep communities in poverty.

We currently have a part time vacancy in our Relationships team for an outgoing, people orientated individual with administration and tele-fundraising experience. You will be in contact with new and existing Oxfam supporters via the phone, email and in person and will be telling them about Oxfam’s current  humanitarian, advocacy and development work, undertaking some tele-fundraising and service calling and will be taking supporters on a  journey that results in a deeper engagement with Oxfam, for longer.  You will also help to maintain the administrative elements of Oxfam’s regular giving programmes (Oxfam+Me, Oxfam100, Oxfam 1000), fulfilling small volume support materials and providing generalist administrative support.

Our ideal candidate will have an interest in development and social justice issues, excellent written and telephone communication skills, experience of  tele-fundraising (while telesales experience and/or experience of cross calling to incoming callers would also be useful) and good administration experience, ideally gained in a marketing or fundraising function. A strong team player, you will be able to work well independently, have good interpersonal, time management and organisational skills, a high attention to detail, strong data entry and IT skills and  experience of using Microsoft Office and relational databases (preferably Raiser’s Edge). 

Working 5 hours per day, you will be required to undertake shifts between 12.00 – 8.30 pm, Monday - Thursday, and 9.30 am  – 5.00 pm on Fridays.  We offer a friendly work environment and passionate colleagues. The role is based at our  Auckland office and attracts a starting salary of $19.37 per hour (and possibly more depending on the skills and experience of the successful postholder).

To apply, please send an up to date CV and covering letter  to with the subject line “Relationships Representative – your name”.

Applications close at 12 noon on Monday, 6 May 2013.
