As the Chief Executive at OUTLine and most senior team member, you’ll be responsible for growing the national reach of the organisation and harnessing technology to connect Rainbow* people across Aotearoa to the support they need to flourish. You’ll understand the potential of technology and be able to navigate seas of ambiguity – you won’t be alone though! With a small but perfectly formed team you’ll work together to ensure that the various operational aspects are running smoothly, while building a bright future alongside our community. You don’t shy away fundraising, organisational development and public speaking.

To be successful in this role, you’ll need to understand the intersectionality of Rainbow communities in Aotearoa, as well as having solid skills managing people and operational requirements.  Solid stakeholder management abilities would be beneficial.

While OUTLine is only able to offer a modest salary initially for this role, expectations are that remuneration will grow as you grow the organisation. Flexible working conditions are also provided, including 5 weeks annual leave, special leave allowances, and funded monthly external supervision. Please talk to us if you are unsure if we would be able to accommodate your needs.

How to Apply
If you are interested in this role and you believe in what we are doing then apply by emailing [email protected] with your CV, and a cover letter. In your cover letter please answer the following two questions:

  • What excites you about this role?
  • What opportunities do you see for OUTLine  enhance the lives of rainbow* people in Aotearoa?

We will not accept applications from applicants who have not answered these questions.
