Aktive in partnership with CLM Community Sport, Harbour Sport, Sport Auckland and Sport Waitākere are looking to recruit healthy active learning advisors to join our supportive team who will work directly with selected primary and intermediate schools within the Auckland Region.

Healthy active learning advisors will work with boards of trustees, principals, senior leaders and teachers of primary and intermediate schools to develop and implement plans that support quality health and physical education, play, sport and active recreation as well as healthy food and drink environments.

As a healthy active learning advisor, you will have the following attributes and skills:

  • Knowledge and understanding of the New Zealand Curriculum and/or Te Marautanga o Aotearoa
  • Extensive knowledge of the health and physical education curriculum with practical delivery experience
  • Knowledge of the systems, structures and operating models that underpin the education, sport, active recreation and play sectors across Aotearoa New Zealand

  • Experience in leading change in the school setting and influencing at different levels (boards of trustees, management, teachers, parents)
  • Excellent communication and strong relationship-building skills.

The role available is with CLM Community Sport (Counties Manukau) and is for a permanent full-time advisor.

If you are an innovative, motivating change agent with education sector experience, keen to join a fun, hard-working team committed to making a positive difference for tamariki in Tāmaki Makaurau, we’d like to hear from you.
