Personal Assistant to Divisional Leaders and Office Assistant

The Salvation Army is a world-wide evangelical Christian church and human service provider that assists over 140,000 New Zealanders every year through a wide range of community services, such as food banks, family stores, early childhood centres, hostels, addiction treatment centres, employment training services, homecare services and a hospice.

It will provide an excellent opportunity to broaden your experience and further develop your career, whilst working with a team of highly passionate people and an iconic organisation whose work supports some of the most vulnerable people in New Zealand.

Person Profile:

  • Proven experience providing efficient and effective administrative and secretarial support

  • A keen eye for detail coupled with a high degree of accuracy
