Save the Children New Zealand (SCNZ) is a long-standing member of Save the Children Association which supports child-focussed programmes and advocacy in more than 120 countries around the world. SCNZ implements a portfolio of development projects across nine countries, and responds to humanitarian events world-wide, and advocates for the rights of children to ensure children are healthy, nourished, protected and learning.
We are working towards three breakthroughs in how the world treats children by 2030:
• No child dies from preventable causes before their 5th birthday
• All children learn from a quality basic education
• Violence against children is no longer tolerated
Save the Children NZ supports and celebrates differences. We are proud of the diversity of our employees. We know that great teams are a combination of members who’ve come from a wide range of backgrounds. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, disability, marital or civil partnership status, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, caring or parental responsibilities, age, or beliefs on matters such as religion and politics. If you are the right fit because of your knowledge, experience, values and/or skills, we can’t wait to get to know you.
The wellbeing of children and young people is our number one priority. That’s why all staff are required to undergo child safe selection procedures before they start working with us. This includes police and reference checks. All of our staff members need to know our safeguarding procedures and must abide by our Child Safeguarding Policy and Code of Conduct.
