This is a flexible position with varied hours each week. We are open to negotiating the work on a part-time, casual, or contract basis, to suit you.

Cool reasons to work with us:

  • Work from home (or from our Christchurch office)

If you work from our Christchurch office, you also get:

  • Novelty coffee mugs (and the coffee to go with them)
  • Free snacks (including fresh fruit, and a (nearly) endless supply of M&Ms)
