The newly formed Planetary Wellbeing Network (PWN), which currently consists of key people from the Public Health Association, the Health Promotion Forum, and the Prior Policy Centre, is seeking a Coordinator to play a central role in implementing their innovative approach to public health and health promotion.
This approach addresses the realities of health and wellbeing in the 21st century, with its unique challenges (of which climate change is just one), and seeks to develop new and exciting ways aimed at reinvigorating the fields of public health and health promotion. We are committed to an holistic and ecological approach, with the term “wellbeing” indicating that our concerns are more than just with physical disease; our methods are positive, strength-building, people-centred, environmentally aware, and deeply honouring of culture, diversity, equality and sustainability.
Initially, there is only sufficient funding for about one day a week for upwards of a year, but part of the role will be to assist the PWN to persuade funders to contribute to this innovative enterprise, so that this role will grow and survive accordingly.
This position is based in Auckland, and is for someone with a passion for public health and/or health promotion, is flexible and creative, and who loves new ideas. It would probably best suit a postgraduate PhD student or similar in public health or health promotion, or someone who has experience in these areas and needs a part-time job. The initial work involves helping to develop presentations and proposals aimed at fund-raising and publicity. In addition, the job involves assisting with the development and implementation of a strategic plan for the PWN, designing a social media-based communications approach to support and encourage a growing network of people interested in this approach, and (in due course) participating in the establishment of one or more evaluated community and policy development demonstration projects designed to illustrate PWN principles in action.
The job is based at the Health Promotion Forum office suite in Grafton Rd, Auckland, where the Forum have kindly provided a hot desk and administrative support for this position, with the Coordinator directly responsible to the PWN via a small management group. However, the applicant can also choose to work at home for at least some of the time if that suits better, and time may also need to be spent networking (etc.) in community settings. Remuneration is negotiable according to qualifications, experience, etc., but is in the order of $40 – 70 an hour, on the basis of seven or so hours a week, initially for about 10 months.
For further information, please contact Emma Frost at firstname.lastname@example.org
