Working in the Communications team, you’ll source high-quality, inspiring content that tells Callaghan Innovation’s story and helps New Zealanders build their understanding of our work in the innovation space. Your focus will be on providing a strategic direction for our online engagement by scoping, developing and managing appropriate online channels, and providing innovative, fresh ideas in this environment.

This is your chance to help us grow and make a name for ourselves, both in New Zealand and internationally.
