Opportunity: Content, Design & Commercial Assistant – CRNZ and Paddler

CRNZ is looking for a new team member!

The Content, Design & Commercial Assistant role is new at CRNZ. Our objective in creating this role is to bring a fresh perspective to the traditional sport “comms manager” job, focusing on social media, web design as well as commercial opportunities from e-commerce and merchandising.

This role has three main purposes:

  • To create visual and written content for social media and web
  • To assist with web and graphic design for CRNZ and our sub-brand Paddler
  • To manage a new e-commerce division on the Paddler platform

The role will initially be part-time, but we intend that hours will increase as the merchandising/e-commerce operation grows. It is currently pitched at “assistant” level, but a motivated candidate will have the opportunity to build the role and, in time, to lead the “Engagement” pillar of the CRNZ strategy.

Bonus points for applicants who can speak/write in Te Reo Māori, and who are paddlers, or at least passionate about paddling and recreation!
