Working for Baywide guarantees continual challenges, community involvement and the warm satisfaction of knowing you’re doing something really worthwhile.  Become part of the community law community – the largest, least expensive law firm in the country – alongside others dedicated to meeting the legal needs of those who can’t afford a lawyer.

Operations Manager

Be our front-facing leader, actively involved in the ways and means of sustaining our free legal advice services.  Never forgetting our respect and understanding of the needs of those who live on low incomes, in small communities, and within diverse cultures, this role requires a person who can manage a team of professionals – voluntary as well as employees – and can work to and with a group of Trustees who are also volunteers.

Success in this job requires experience at a senior level in administration, financial and human resource management, excellent relationship management and wide networking skills, as well as some knowledge of not-for-profit organisations’ way of working.  You’ll need a valid driver’s licence, and the ability to inspire and acknowledge contributions to Baywide’s functions and reputation at peer-to-peer levels as well as from outside the organisation. Commitment to Te Tiriti O Waitangi and the needs of Maori is also a requirement.

The role is for 30 hours per week and based in our Tauranga CBD office.
