The Hāpai Access Card has the potential to change the life of a person with a disability by providing them with the confidence to go out into their community knowing that their are businesses that are committed to providing them with an excellent customer experience. The challenge for some people with a disability is applying for the card as it is usually done online. The role of the Hāpai Access Card Partner Relationship Manager is to manage the relationships we have with the over 40 NGOs we partner with. This will require creating attractive communications, delivering presentations both in person and remotely, and supporting our partners. You will work closely with the card application team who deal daily with the NGOs who have clients applying for the card. You may also arrange events to thank our partner NGOs for their contribution to our success.
Importantly, as we get further into our national rollout of the card you you assist the leadership in planning for local partner support in the cities we activate the card in.
We welcome, and encourage, people to apply who need adjustments to the work enviroment to be their best. In our current team we have staff who are legally blind, neurodiverse, have mobility issues and/or are busy parents who need flexibility.
For those seeking future employment, after 3 months of successful volunteering we will supply a CV to help you get that job you want. We also provide coaching around writing cover letters, CVs and interviewing skills. Most of our current staff started as a volunteer with us, so who knows that could be you. The work will be conducted from our lovely office at Kilmarnock Enterprise in Wigram with views of the Port Hills. There is easy parking onsite, and a bus stop directly outside the building. The office has a small kitchen, with microwave, sandwich toaster and fridge, plus a high-end Nespresso Coffee machine - we supply coffee pods, milk and a variety of teas.
