  • Descrição


    Current help Needed:
    Now - December - Gardener / Cook / Dog Walker to support Craig with the studio while Mandi is away. Will be chill and great bush walks that will be part of your job as long as you bring the dog.

    February - Filmmaker / Social media guru - To travel in a caravan around the south island making videos of the Trust's work while we are on the road. You will get a free trip around the south island and you will have a chance to visit from Marlborough down to Invercargill and most places in between. Need to see a showreel or examples of your work and you must be an easy travel companion and capable of cooking kai on a camp stove as well (or at least be an awesome dishwasher).

    What we do:

    We run a charitable trust that helps to create the Visual Poets Society. We work with youth to develop their visual storytelling skills so that they can use them to change their world. We teach a program. It is half photography and half creative wellbeing. Half of the year we teach locally in the Wellington region and online and the other half we are on the road finding our visual poets and supporting youth in other regions.

    These are the project we currently have on the go.

    The Trust Gardens -
    Our trust is run out of our property in Upper Hutt. Currently, the gardens are a hot mess and we need to do some landscaping to get them back up to scratch. If you know how to build raised beds and love working outdoors this is a job for you.

    Organizer Extraordinaire-
    Someone to help organize and put order to things. So if you love the Konmarie method and the idea of getting rid of clutter and creating order out of chaos gets your blood warming and your hands rubbing together then we could use your brilliance.

    Social Media Guru -
    Someone to help us with our social media strategy

    Photographer or videographer? - Great we always need extra help here too. Recording content and are our sort of person.

    Grant Writer-
    Someone to help us to write grants

    Curriculum development: Are you a teacher? Sweet we could use the help writing up our work.

    We have a lovely room in our home but we are looking for someone specific. We are looking for an ambivert/introvert who is happy with their own company but can also communicate and socialize a bit (we are an ambivert and an introvert so highly extroverted people overwhelm us).
    You need to have a good sense of humour, and be compassionate. A strong work ethic and a desire to leave the world better than when you found it.

    We have lots of books mostly of a Buddhist /Taoist, or non-fiction photography and film making and self-development variety.

    Part of your chores will be to keep the house clean and tidy too.
    Please note our internet is limited and not suitable for any freelance heavy internetwork you may be doing. But if you have a Spark Internet on your phone you get about 2 bars here in your window in your room- Vodaphone needs to walk up the driveway.

    There are miles and miles of walking trails around us and we have a beautiful home and section on a river with an organic garden.

    What we do:
    We run a charitable Trust.
    Our focus is on youth mental health through developing self-compassion and creative resilience.
    We run a program which is an award winning wellness program wrapped inside a photography course.
    We also run an internationally award-winning photography studio that underwrites the work of the trust.

    You have your own private bedroom with heater and a very cute dog to keep you company (an Irishdoodle puppy named Gritty) .

    The bus line is at the top of the drive and you are allowed to double up on workdays to take full days off to explore the region.

    The People:
    Mandi is a Master Photographer, Film Director and the Founder Director of the Trust. Wicked sense of humour and life experiences that range from serving as a Nurse in the U.S. Navy, to organic blueberry farming, and 10 years following her creative heart. American by birth, Lived in Japan for 3 years, and New Zealand for 19.

    Craig is a Business analyst and does all of the behind the scenes work for the trust. Even more wicked sense of humour. He is from Rhodesia, via South Africa and has lived in NZ for 20 years.

    Please note that we are friendly introverts. If you are super over the top bubbly soul and constantly need companionship, we might not be the best choice. But if you are an ambivert, an introvert, or an extrovert who is skilled finding ways to keep your extroverted awesomeness entertained then we would be a great fit.
