- Are you an enthusiastic and highly motivated self-starter?
If you answered yes to the above questions, you could be the person we are looking for.
The Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society is looking for a passionate and motivated person to join our Health Promotion team. This will be a fast-paced role based out of our Tauranga office with travel around the Waikato and Bay of Plenty region and occasional travel elsewhere within New Zealand.
You will lead our SunSmart Programme, as well as using your influence to promote healthy nutrition and exercise, and to reduce harm from tobacco and alcohol. Your work will span many levels of engagement – from working with small groups of people, making individual change; to presenting to local government on vape-free parks or contributing to national advocacy campaigns.
To succeed in this role, you must be passionate about health promotion focused on reducing the risk of cancer. You are organised with excellent time management and problem-solving abilities. You will have great community networks, as well as experience working with Maori. You will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be a confident public speaker.
Experience in health promotion, health, education or community development would be an advantage, as would knowledge of Te Reo Maori.

This rewarding role requires you to:
- Use your own vehicle
- Consent to undergo a police vetting process
- Attend an orientation day in late November
We are looking for people who are able to commit to a minimum of six months in this volunteer role. Petrol costs are reimbursed; days and hours to suit your availability (no weekend driving required).
