At our company in New Zealand, we want our supporters’ experiences with us to be different, better and more rewarding than any other organisation in NZ. The Supporter Relationships Marketing Assistant is a “hands-on” role – that involves working within our supporter relationships team, interacting directly with supporters and working with our membership database. This role also provides a unique opportunity, in a consulting capacity, to make a difference and influence the long-term effectiveness of the organisation.

One of the key challenges our company in New Zealand has to face is our “leaky bucket” – we have a high rate of supporter “turnover”. Using the knowledge gained from practical experience and additional research, the intern will be responsible for conducting an analysis of key drivers of turnover and preparing and reporting conclusions and recommendations that will be used to implement a strategy going forward.
