Youth and Volunteer  Coordinator  (Full Time)

Are you ready to create life-changing experiences for tomorrow's leaders?

About us:

At Tōtara Springs Christian Centre (TSCC), we believe in practically demonstrating the love and compassion of Jesus through providing excellence in everything that we do. Our gifted and motivated team has the privilege of creating unforgettable memories for groups of people all year round.

You will contribute to the present and future culture of our amazing organisation and sharing God's love. This is an opportunity to join an organisation that lead and inspire the youth of tomorrow, a place where life-changing experiences happen every day.

Tōtara Springs is the largest centre of its kind in New Zealand and is the ultimate venue for church retreats, school camps, sports activities, business conferences, artistic events, holiday camps and family reunions.  We are situated in a beautiful setting, nestled at the foot of the Kaimai mountain ranges in Matamata. There are 90 acres of park-like grounds and native bush with streams, walks and bush trails. We have a large indoor sports and activity centre and breakaway areas, as well as a large hot pool fed by natural springs.  We have guests of all ages who travel from afar to enjoy our beautiful setting and outstanding hospitality.

About the role:

Our ideal Youth and Volunteer Coordinator values self-awareness, empathy and accepts every challenge with a growth mind-set. We need a successful coordinator with strong administrative skills, creativity and energy to develop a strong leadership base for our kids camps.

With a team of energetic youth to lead and support, there is much to do. Your powers of persuasion, delegation and organisation skills will be tested. Even with a clear plan, anything can happen. Your events team will come to rely on your calm and grounded approach to problem-solving and health & safety expertise to troubleshoot whatever comes up.

As a contributor to some of our major annual events such as HMRage and Elevate, you will be a clear communicator with a get stuff done approach to your task list. Successful event management is all about the team.

About you:

If you have worked in a Christian camping organisation before or have experience in leading faith-based youth programmes and large events, you will appreciate the challenges and opportunities involved.

As someone who listens, learns and adapts to each situation, you will quickly figure out how to enhance our existing programme format.

You will be known for your initiative and support when working with others. All forms of communications will be a natural strength of your skillset, whether it be as the ‘face' of the event, preparing programme reports or building relationships with our guests, volunteers, and our wider community.
