About the business


Wellington Women's House is located in Mount Victoria and provides low-cost temporary housing for women on low incomes or in transition. For more than twenty years, it has been home to women who need a safe place to stay, often at a difficult time in their lives. The House has a Manager, Support Worker and Cleaner, and is supported by a Management Committee, which is a small group of volunteers who provide a governance and management role for the House.  The property is owned by Housing New Zealand and has capacity for up to 16 residents at any one time.


About the role


The Contracts & Facilities Manager role is a newly created role that will report directly to the Management Committee, but work closely alongside the Manager and Support Worker.

This role will take ownership and responsibility of managing matters relating to funding contracts (from grant applications through to accountability reporting), maintaining the facilities of the House (including liaising with Housing New Zealand) and providing other financial and administration assistance.  The purpose of this role is to ensure the smooth operations of the House to enable the Manager and Support Worker to spend as much time as possible in supporting the residents.

The role is proposed to be 20 hours per week. Although some time will need to be spent with the other staff at the House (preferably Tuesdays and Fridays), we are open to exploring flexible options, such as remote working or flexibility around school hours or other commitments. The role is for a fixed term until 30 June 2020 due to the House's current funding contracts.

More information on the House is available on  Further details and a full job description is available on request, and you can contact Ainsley (one of our committee members) for a confidential discussion on
