Advisor (Pacific)

As the community trust serving Auckland and Northland, we work to support the shaping of our communities today and into the future. It is an exciting time to join the team as our new strategies are implemented within our organisation and into our communities.

This includes our Pacific Strategy which aims to strengthen our Pacific communities through a number of activations as part of our 15 year strategy. The endowment fund of $1.3+ billion that we preserve and grow, allows us to make grants of $48 million each year to support the work of community organisations across our region. We are looking to strengthen our partnerships and create greater scale and impact through innovative approaches.

This role in the Funding Unit is one of seven advisors, supported by the Community Funding Manager to: assess grant applications; provide funding recommendations and report on grants to the CEO and Trustees; provide advice to community groups; and participate in cross-team collaborative project work for the Foundation.

The Advisor (Pacific) has a particular focus on engagement and relationship management with Pacific communities and for working closely with the Foundation’s Pacific Strategy Activator to support the Funding Unit’s implementation of our Pacific strategy.

You’ll bring to this role your experience and knowledge of Pacific communities, excellent communication skills and natural relationship building ability. Your analytical thinking and planned approach ensures timely delivery of quality funding assessments. As a strong team player, you will support our internal team and the activation of our Pacific strategy.

Based in Ponsonby with workplace flexibility, Foundation North offers a collaborative team environment focused on continuous learning, personal development and supports innovative thinking.
