Job Description:

My client located on the North Shore of Auckland, is a lean hard-working Māori-owned research company looking to have a big impact globally.

Their research is out there - edgy and on-the-ground but not always in Aotearoa. To prevent as much unnecessary disease and death as possible, they need someone they can trust who can pay the bills, run the payroll, track their spending against budget and help with their financial reporting to their funders. Prepare GST returns, annual accounts for IRD submission, Staff Kiwisaver, processing overseas payments and currency exchanges as a great proportion of funding comes in US Dollars. 

Our whakatauki “the speaker in front is enabled by the work done behind the scenes” meaning the more backroom tasks you can undertake, the more research results they can produce, the more misery that can be alleviated. 

Te amorangi ki mua, te hapai o ki muri. (Jump forward, handle backwards)
Māori values guide them - so whānau & culture are central, pono (honesty, truth, integrity), manawanui (commitment), waiora (wellbeing & health) are important. Compassion for Indigenous & marginalised people and clear communication skills would assist fit with the team. 

Job Requirements:

For this role applicants will need to have a recognised accounting qualification with previous commercial/business experience in the New Zealand environment, preferred XERO knowledge, being a stickler for accuracy and proficient in efficient time & task management and know how to converse with IRD and relevant statutory authorities. 

Not essential, but would be great to have another team member with te reo Māori and mātauranga Māori (Māori language & knowledge). Experience working in research-orientated environments with scientists would be an advantage. Project budgeting a definite plus. 

This is a full time position of 37.5 hours per week and offer a competitive salary package.

To apply for this role, please provide a Covering letter of application telling us about yourself and a full comprehensive CV outlining your work expertise and empathy towards support groups..

You must have the legal right to work in NZ to apply for this role.
