Estimated Time: 2 - 4 Hours Over 3 - 6 Weeks

We're a small group of volunteer Trustees representing ShelterBox to New Zealanders. We raise awareness and funds to contribute to disaster relief in parts of the world where help is too often not forthcoming. Our goal is to ensure no-one is without shelter following disaster. We have built an excellent set of resources for people to help us by (1) Telling the ShelterBox story in community engagements (schools, clubs, events ...) (2) Helping members of the public to fundraise on our behalf, (3) Lending their skills to help us with internal projects, administration and tasks. We now seek support to take this project to the people. We're hoping to find someone super-organised, communications and engagement-savvy with rock solid project management skills. The task is to help us develop and launch an engagement plan as we seek to identify, engage, onboard and manage a cohort of volunteers to help with direct public engagement and some inhouse activity from time-to-time.

Working location

online / phone. Flexible.

Proposed project steps with time estimates

> initial informational interview with key persons to understand the project scope, context and intention (2hrs over perhaps 2-3 sessions)

> two-way exchange and info sharing to ensure full understanding (perhaps an hour)

> propose an approach and mode of working that you think will result in a cogent program launch (own estimate plus time to engage and propose - 1 hour)

> work with us to design the launch and subsequent engagement steps and potentially stay on the guide the launch to conclusion (6 - 10 hours)

> offer perspective, advice, and feedback as required to ensure we're as sharp as a pin and pointing in the right direction to continue doing great work (30 min)

What we Do
ShelterBox exists to ensure no one is without shelter after disaster. We often work in places that others don’t, making sure that we reach families who need support to take the next step in resuming their livelihoods. From Cameroon to Syria, all the way to the Philippines and the Caribbean, ShelterBox has provided shelter to over 2.5 million people so far. We won’t stop until we see a world where no family goes without shelter after disaster.
