Seeking New White Ribbon Researcher

Last month we mentioned White Ribbon’s Researcher Dr Fiona Shearer has taken up a permanent role elsewhere. We are very sad to farewell Fiona as she was a really valuable member of our small team. As a result, we are now looking for someone new to take on this important role.

While there are occasionally busy periods conducting research and interpreting data, it is predominantly an advisory position. It is a paid position with variable hours and it is a role that can be undertaken from home so if you are currently seeking some additional work please get in touch.

The researcher plays an vital role in educating the Trust and staff on evolving research into best practice regarding violence prevention and ensuring campaign messaging is appropriate and effective. As we are a small team it’s essential that the researcher is a team player, willing to collaborate with others and respond to external enquiries when required.

The ideal candidate will have a thorough understanding of social services in New Zealand and experience developing research questions, conducting interviews and writing reports. It would be helpful if you had well-developed community networks. An understanding of media and communications would also add value.

If you would like to know more, or express interest in this role please contact the White Ribbon Campaign Manager Rob McCann at We look forward to hearing from you.
