Regional Supply Co-ordinator

Job Type




About the Role

The role of Christchurch Stock Coordinator exists to support our Christchurch Science Communicators to store, care for and support the management of our party kits and stock.

Before and after each party, there's some work to be done to ensure that our scientists have everything that they need - and, critically, that our customers have an amazing experience. When a party is done, the gear needs to be cleaned, restocked and reset so it's in perfect order for its next use. Prior to each party, you’ll need to re-check the equipment and ensure that the consumables etc are all set to go. This role is ideally suited to a mature, detail oriented, tidy person - and if you have an interest in STEM and/or a passion for education and looking for some additional income - then we can't wait to talk!


As Regional Supply Co-ordinator, you will be responsible for the following tasks:

Equipment Storage

Your storage solution could be a secure, well organised space in your garage, spare bedroom or shed at home.  It must be within an approx 15km radius of the CBD for easy access for our presenters.

In order to fulfill this role, you must have access to a storage facility that meets the following criteria:

  • Safe—no hazards

  • Secure—must be lockable with limited access to the public

  • Dry—kits must be kept dry and you must have the ability to wash, hang and dry towels, mats etc,  between parties

  • Liaise with Science Communicators to arrange suitable time to collect and return equipment kits for each party.

  • Store the equipment safely and securely, while ensuring that it is accessible at reasonable notice (i.e. not in a remote location).

Live Event Kit preparation

  • Following our checklists and procedures, prepare and pack ‘kits’ - boxes of equipment and consumables needed for our Nanogirl Live Events programmes.

  • Communicate with our Presenters to make sure they have all the information they need to collect their equipment, and deliver a great event.

  • Restocking consumables in each kit in accordance with the party theme and the number of guests for each party.

Use our systems to support quality live event delivery, and help us improve

  • Use our systems diligently, helping us to ensure that our records are accurate and that we can keep track of a busy live events programme.

  • Help improve our systems by contributing your ideas and insights, particularly as your experience in the role grows.

Support the Live Events team

  • Live events are a dynamic part of the business, and from time to time you may be asked to help out in areas other than the kit packing, e.g. with an errand, or helping to solve a problem.

Contribute to our team and model our values

We are a high-performing team, with great relationships built on trust and accountability.  We look out for one another, and help one another to succeed.  You’ll bring your values and purpose – your ‘why’ – to the team, and bring your best self to your work. You’ll:

  • Help out. We are a small team, and while our focus is on our own roles we are all expected to ‘muck in’ and get the job done when needed.

Remuneration offered: $40 per kit stored per month, with a minimum reimbursement set at 2 kits.
