CWS is always looking for talented and committed people to work with us in our Christchurch office. CWS is committed to a diverse and skilled workforce.
CWS does not have overseas-based staff. CWS supports local people to undertake their own development programmes as they are best placed to identify needs and strategies. This builds local expertise and ensures funding is spent in and for the community and not returned to New Zealand through salaries.
CWS Decision-makers Mentoring Programme
CWS values diversity and dialogue in our efforts to take action against poverty. We invite people who are interested in being more deeply involved in our work and gain valuable experience to join this 12-month programme. There will be training in governance and opportunities to contribute to the work we do.

There are no vacancies at present.
CWS is supported by a large number of volunteers. Many help in the Christchurch office doing specialist tasks or working as part of a team on our regular major mailouts. We also have volunteers who represent us in their parishes and communities throughout the country. There is always room for one more. Please contact us if you would like to work as a CWS volunteer in the National office or in your local area.
CWS supports the Living Wage and is an accredited Living Wage Employer. All workers should be paid enough to cover food, housing, transportation, and childcare. The Living Wage is reviewed annually.
