Job Description

About the Wellington Women’s Health Collective 

The Wellington Women’s Health Collective (“the Collective”) is a small not for profit organisation that has at its heart the wellbeing of women, by providing timely support, information and counselling to the women of Wellington. We were formed in 1986 and since then have become an established part of the Wellington community. 

Our purpose 

The purpose of the Collective is to benefit the community through empowering and supporting women to make informed choices about their physical, mental and emotional health. 

Our vision is that all Wellington women will have access to the support services they need to maintain long term health and well-being and that we can deliver these services from a physical “women’s place”, alongside other like-minded services. 

Our values 

Our work is underpinned by a set of principles and behaviours that apply to how we work together and with the women we support: 

Our principles 

  • We are a feminist collective; 

  • We recognise and honour the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi; 

  • We are pro-choice, believing that every woman has the basic human right to decide when and whether to have children; 

  • We are committed to supporting all women to access a full range of health services (including well-being) - Te whare tapa whā; 

  • We welcome all women, recognising and respecting the needs of the LGBTQ+ community; 

  • We partner with other organisations for stronger impact for communities/whanau. 

Our behaviours 

  • We live our values; 

  • We operate within a gender-equal framework; 

  • We function collectively; 

  • We do what we say we will – we are responsive and reliable; 

  • We know what we are doing - we have a plan; 

  • We understand our collective strengths; 

  • We champion compassion and kindness, and we are respectful to ourselves and to others; 

  • We are reflective – we are a learning organisation, we don’t rush ahead without thought
