Communications & Social Media manager (part-time)

The Wanaka Community Workshop (WCW) was developed as a community resource, where people can access the tools, materials and physical space necessary for building and repair projects without having to purchase or rent their own; and to create a space where people can learn new skills.

WCW is an inclusive space, where people are welcome to come and participate in or host workshops, work together on individual or community projects. Participants can learn and share from a range of skills and processes, or simply drop in for a cup of tea and some companionship. Make + Share + Repair.

The WCW also offers opportunities for people to volunteer their time or skills, to create things for the Upper Clutha community.

From one empty workshop and one member they have grown into a thriving community.

WCW has a group of amazing volunteers that are working hard for the good of the community. The marketing role is important to highlight this amazing group's work, to encourage more volunteers, grow goodwill and assist with gaining support and funding.

They are seeking someone to create stories and digital content for our website, social media, PR, and fundraising. Volunteers would use raisely.com to create and manage fundraising campaigns.


They are seeking a volunteer ideally with a tertiary qualification in marketing, communications, or media, or at approximately two years' experience in a communications or marketing role. The volunteer should be digitally savvy with a solid understanding of social media audiences; confident using Google Analytics, metrics, reporting and analysis. Additionally volunteers should be:

  • confident maintaining a high level of engagement and growth and have experience managing social media / online communities.

  • an excellent written communicator with an eye for a story.

  • great at taking photos and making short videos for social media.

  • passionate about Social Media, up-to-date with the latest trends.

  • able to use (or keen to master) Raisely (WCW’s online fundraising & campaign platform).

We hope volunteers will gain huge satisfaction from sharing their time and energy with this great community resource and seeing volunteers and users increase as a result of their input into the team.
