Call for Expressions of Interest for NZFVC Academic Directors and Advisory Groups

Wed 11 Aug 2021

We are looking to appoint new Academic Directors and Advisory Group members to help shape the future of the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse


As part of our journey towards placing Te Tiriti o Waitangi at the centre of what we do, the NZFVC is seeking to appoint an Academic Director - Māori and an Academic Director - Tauiwi to support the work of the Clearinghouse and to contribute to the development of a new mission, values and purpose.

The Academic Directors will work collaboratively with two new Advisory Groups (Māori/Tauiwi) and the NZFVC Kaiwhakahaere/Manager, with the overall goal of building and communicating strong evidence based insights for the prevention and effective response to family, whānau and sexual violence in Aotearoa. 

These are advisory appointments for either senior academics (likely at Senior Lecturer level or above but negotiable depending on the candidate) or suitably qualified and experienced professional research entity candidates with key leadership responsibilities. For more detailed information including how to apply, please refer to the advertisement on the UniServices website.

The two roles are Fixed Term (appointment initially for 1 year) and 0.1 FTE (4 hours per week). 

Advisory Groups

We are also looking to engage two new Advisory Groups (Māori/Tauiwi). We are looking for people who:

  • Bring expert knowledge in family, whanau and sexual violence and/or professional skills that can support the aims of the Clearinghouse. 
  • Reflect the diverse communities impacted by family, whānau and sexual violence, including those with lived experience.

If you have any questions about either the Director roles or the Advisory Groups please contact

The closing date for EOIs is 5pm Tuesday 31st of August
