Communications Advisor/Editor, 20 hours a week
Applications close Monday, 2 April 2018.
The Pacific Association of Supreme Audit Institutions (PASAI) is the official association of 26 Supreme Audit Institutions (government audit offices and similar organisations, known as SAIs) in the Pacific region.
PASAI has an Auckland-based Secretariat, and operates through a New Zealand-registered incorporated society. Its budget is about NZ$3 million each year, although this is expected to increase. Its work is funded by several development partners, including the Asian Development Bank, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the World Bank.
We're recruiting for a quick-thinking, audience-focused wordsmith, who is cheerful, clever, composed, and capable.
For the past four years PASAI's communications advice and editorial support has been provided by external contractors, but with PASAI's current focus, it is now our preference to recruit a part-time local Communications Advisor/Editor to be based in the Secretariat office in Parnell, Auckland. A well-qualified and experienced communications professional is needed to ensure the quality of PASAI's materials and reports and prepare them for publication and distribution.
We need someone with an above-average grasp of written English, a sharp eye for detail, and a commitment to plain English. As well as seeing ambiguity, a lack of clarity, or a misplaced comma (and knowing how to fix them), you also need the ability to see when the structure or story is not quite right – and suggest how it could work better.
This role is part-time, although at peak times, additional hours may be required. This role reports directly to the Chief Executive, and provides communication advice and support to the Secretariat Team and also to PASAI members. To find out more about us, see our website: www.pasai.org
