This will involve accurate video or audio transcripts and recordings of Kaumatua/mana whenua, writing narrative summaries of those transcriptions (including consultation to ensure that they are correct), then storing those files and ensuring security of access. Additionally, there will be research work for a range of GIS projects within the Maniapoto sites of significance and wahi tapu programmes, including the development of relevant tools.

Key attributes sought include knowledge of tikanga Maori and well developed writing skills with the ability to translate written work from Maori to English and from English to Maori.

This role would appeal to someone who enjoys the balance of writing behind a computer, but equally spending quality time with others in the field.

The position is not expected to be fulltime (24 hours per week), which may provide the right person with the flexibility that they are looking for. The role is based out of Te Kuiti.
