We're hiring a new campaigner! Apply now

Update: This role has now been filled.

Are you looking to use your communications and organising skills, creativity and ability to get shit done to make real, positive change in Aotearoa New Zealand?

Are you hungry to work with a small, fast-moving, outcome-focused team to help harness the power of the crowd for good?

Are you looking for the opportunity to turn your best ideas for people-powered change into reality, and to help other New Zealanders do the same?

This could be the role for you.


ActionStation is an independent, member-led not-for-profit organisation representing over 140,000 Kiwis holding power to account, standing for human rights, an open democracy, economic fairness and a healthy environment. We’re a fast-growing and nimble organisation and now we’re looking for a new Campaigner with great communication skills, a creative mind, and a passion for getting shit done. You will help us organise offline campaign actions, from petition deliveries to rallies and public meetings. 

You’ll probably have 1-2 years relevant experience, but this doesn’t necessarily need to be in a NGO or digital campaigning. You do need to be able to convince us that you’ve got the ability to pick tech skills up quickly.

Location: Flexible for the right candidate who is happy to work remotely. We currently have small offices in Auckland and Wellington so if you like working from an office with others, you’d need to live there. 

Hours: Approximately 30-40/hrs week depending on availability.

Salary: Between $45-55k pro rata, depending on experience.

If you’re like us, you think that the hope for our future lies with the ability of people, lots and lots of people, to come together in new ways, challenge the power of the old systems, and build a more democratic, fair and just society.

At ActionStation we’re a driving force in this transformation. Since we launched before the 2014 election, we’ve been launching high-impact, rapid-response campaigns to help hundreds of thousands of people across New Zealand come together to drive progressive political change.

So, if you can write powerful messages that connect with a broad range of busy people from across the political spectrum, if you have a quick strategic mind that can spot opportunities and come up with practical and creative solutions, and if you have a passion for winning with a data-driven and outcome-oriented team – then this position could be amazing for you.

We welcome and value the contributions that individuals who identify as members of marginalised communities bring to our organisation, and encourage Māori, people of colour, women, people identifying as LGBTQI, members of ethnic minorities, immigrants and people with disabilities to apply. We recognise that this list is neither exhaustive nor representative of the intersectionality present within each individual. Please indicate in your cover letter if you would like to be considered for employment equity.

Reporting to the Director of Campaigns, the position will start as soon as possible.


To apply: Please send a CV and cover letter to info@actionstation.org.nz with the subject line “Application: Campaigner”. Please send as PDF documents with your first and last names in the file name. Applications close on Sunday 11th September at 8pm.
