Operations Coordinator for Manioro Nu’u Rainbow Hub Hawkes Bay

Are you passionate about supporting Rainbow+ communities and promoting inclusivity? Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga and Nevertheless Trust invite you to join us as the Operations Coordinator for the Manioro Nu’u Rainbow Hub in Hastings.

About Nevertheless Trust: Nevertheless Trust is a Māori, Pasifika, and Rainbow+ Charitable organization deeply rooted in Pasifika & Māori values such as vā (relational space), tautua (service to community), tino rangatiratanga (self-determination), and kaitakitanga (sustainability of peoples). The Manioro Nu’u Rainbow Hub, established in April 2023, serves as a safe space for all Rainbow+ peoples in the Hawkes Bay area. Manioro Nu’u provides a place for connection, education on topics such as Mental & Sexual Health, and creative expression through contemporary and indigenous artforms. 

About Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga (TToH): TToH, a whānau-focused, kaupapa Māori health and social services organisation, has been successfully working with whānau for over 37 years. We are the largest kaupapa Māori health and social services organization in New Zealand, providing professional health services to our local Hawkes Bay community and the wider Eastern region.

The role will provide operational, program co-design, administration, and transport/logistical support to the Manioro Nu’u Rainbow Hub in Hawkes Bay.

This is a fixed-term 20 hour per week position. 10 hours will be worked on our workshop days (Tuesday and Thursday 4pm-9pm) and the remaining 10 will be worked flexibly by agreement. The role is fixed-term for one year in order to assess the Manioro Nu’u Rainbow Hub's long term requirements.
