  • Do you love working with others to deliver projects and new solutions?
  • Are you based in Kirikiriroa/Hamilton but happy to work nationally?

Deliver a range of projects nationally that support our mahi and make a difference to vulnerable people.


LinkPeople works with vulnerable members of our communities to access permanent, safe and affordable housing and links them to the health and social services they need to live well. We work together with others as part of a community-wide approach to end homelessness. We are looking for a fantastic project coordinator who wants to contribute to this mahi.
