Board Intern

English Language Partners New Zealand (ELPNZ) has an exciting opportunity for a former refugee who is interested in understanding governance and strategic oversight for a significant national charitable organisation. We are recruiting a Board Intern to join our national board of highly committed and highly motivated trustees.

Our Trustees are responsible for governing and protecting the long-term interests of ELPNZ throughout New Zealand. For 40 years, ELPNZ has provided English language tuition and social support to adult refugees and migrants making their home in New Zealand. In 2021, we worked with 6,400 learners through the efforts of 350 paid staff and 1,000 trained volunteers.

The internship will be for a period of two years. While there will be no remuneration, any pre-approved travel and other ELPNZ-related expenses will be reimbursed.

Purpose of Position

The intern will be an observer on the board, joining board meetings in Wellington and receiving all board communications. The intern will learn, first-hand, the role of governance and the dynamics of sitting on a board. While the intern will not have voting rights, the intern will be included in all reading and discussions and will be called upon for comment as an appointed trustee would be.

This internship demonstrates ELPNZ’s commitment to ensuring that former refugees are an important voice in the governance of ELPNZ. This role will allow the intern to gain valuable insights and practical experience in the functions and dynamics of the ELP board of trustees and support them on their leadership journey.

Ideal candidates for the role:

  • Have some community leadership, advocacy or engagement experience
  • Have some Not-for-Profit, government, community, academic or business experience
  • Must be passionate about improved learning and settlement outcomes for former refugees
