Seeking Rainbow Minorities Project Coordinator
Part-time; fixed-term contract (three months), Wellington-based.
As InsideOUT’s Rainbow Minorities Project Coordinator you will have responsibility for coordinating and delivering a project working with young people to create a poster and video series about minorities within the rainbow community. A key part of this role also includes contributing to either the the graphic design and creation of the poster series for the project, or the film-making of the videos, dependent on the individual’s skills and experience.
The project involves the planning and delivery of a series of posters and short videos highlighting the different identities that make up the rainbow community. The media will focus particularly on minorities within the spectrum eg. intersex, asexual, takatāpui, queer people with disabilities.
The poster/video series will aim to raise awareness about all the identities that make up our rainbow communities but don’t often get talked about. Posters and videos will be distributed to youth groups, schools and youth services. They will allow young people with minority identities in the rainbow community to see their identity validated and reflected back to them, making them feel more comfortable accessing support services they need.
The key responsibilities of this role are:
• overseeing the coordination of the project
• recruiting, managing and supporting youth volunteers
• contribution to either the film-making or graphic design of the project, to a high professional standard
• regular reporting to our National Coordinator and board
• gathering feedback and completing an evaluation report for the project.
We are looking for someone with superb organising and communication skills (written and verbal) and experience in either film-making or graphic design. The ideal applicant will be self-motivated with strong time management skills, with proven experience planning and coordinating successful projects. Knowledge of the challenges faced by sexuality, sex, and gender minorities and experience in youth work and cultural competency would be an advantage. We are seeking someone who identifies with being a minority within our rainbow communities, and we encourage applications from people who feel they might fit this description in some way.
This is a contract for 99 hours, spread across three months (April-June). Days and times worked are negotiable. The successful applicant will be paid the living wage.
