Hui E! Community Aotearoa is on the hunt for a remarkable individual to step into the shoes of Kaiwhakahaere Matua / Chief Executive.

Hui E! is all about weaving connections, amplifying voices, and igniting change in our community sector. We’re not your typical organisation – we’re a whānau united by a vision to create stronger, more vibrant communities. Te Tiriti o Waitangi guides our path, and sits at the core of everything we do. Our Board is guided by a Te Tiriti Relationship Framework and we are committed to a Te Tiriti based co-leadership model in future.

As the Kaiwhakahaere Matua, you won’t just be steering the ship – you’ll be navigating us through uncharted waters with a clear vision. Your leadership will shape our strategy, cultivate relationships, and bring communities together like never before. You’ll lead and manage a small but growing team to progress the Hui E! strategic priorities.

Your mahi will include making strategic decisions and driving sector-wide strategies. You’ll support our incredible kaimahi, keep an eye on how we’re performing, and keep pushing us towards our vision. Making sure we’re financially strong is a core requirement, including financial planning and developing funding partnerships. You’ll be working to foster Te Tiriti-based collaborations, building bridges, and creating impact across sectors.

Hui E! embraces diversity and welcomes applications from all walks of life. Join us in stitching together our community’s tapestry – let’s create a stronger, more vibrant future together.
