Conservation Volunteers New Zealand is recruiting a Live-in Custodian for the stunning Truby King House in Wellington

As part of CVNZ’s new international volunteer programme we will be moving into the Truby King House which will be utilised as our volunteer accommodation and community engagement centre in Wellington City.
Set on the Melrose Hills amongst beautiful botanical gardens, the historic Truby King House is truly a jewel in Wellington’s crown. Remaining more or less underutilised in recent years, we envision that our volunteers will breath new life into the house and create an atmosphere befitting of the House’s original owner.
The new custodian will be responsible for living in the House alongside our volunteers and overseeing the day to day functioning of the household. We’re looking for someone who can live happily amongst our volunteers, and provide a constant backdrop of encouragement in their respect of the property and enjoyment of its use.
This opportunity will be unpaid but the successful applicant will have all of their living expenses provided including rent, power, food, phone, and internet. This position would be suitable for a retired person or someone who has flexible work arrangements.
