Everyone has mental health and wellbeing and here at the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand (MHF), we believe it is a taonga/treasure that we all need to nurture so we can lead fulfilling, meaningful lives.
We are the largest mental health charity in Aotearoa, and our mahi/work is centred around creating a kinder, safer, more inclusive and supportive society for the 1 in 5 people who experience mental illness each year.
Our people are what makes the MHF a great place to work. We are a growing whānau with a diverse range of experiences and interests. Many of us have lived experience of mental illness or have supported loved ones through hard times. We are brimming with energy, passion and aroha for the mahi we do, and we’d love to welcome another changemaker to our team!

The MHF is already a great place to work and we are looking for someone to help make it even better. Reporting to the General Manager of Marketing and Operations, you’ll be tasked with growing and nurturing a strong, vibrant and supportive culture where best practice people management is in place, so everyone can thrive.

In return you get to be part of a caring, fun and supportive work whānau, dedicated to creating positive and meaningful change. Based in our Maungawhau/Mt Eden office, we offer flexible work arrangements and we even help you celebrate your birthday by encouraging you to take a paid day off.
The MHF actively promotes the articles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and it is important that you have a willingness and desire to extend your knowledge of Te Ao Māori and Te Reo Māori.
We value the experiences of people with lived experience of mental health – tangata whai ora. Diversity in the workplace is important to us – we are an Equal Opportunity employer.
