Funding Coordinator – Nelson Environment Centre

Nelson Environment Centre – Funding Coordinator

The Nelson Environment Centre is a social enterprise that helps the Nelson Tasman community live more sustainably and reduce its impact on the environment. We’re proud to have been serving our community since 1976.

Our aim is to inspire, inform and assist people to meet today’s environmental challenges. We help people to recycle, reduce waste and energy use. We empower them to create healthy soils and gardens, and to live well.


With 20 team members and 30 volunteers across two locations, we provide a range of services to assist people to take positive action. These include the Recycle & ReUse Centre based in Tahunanui, E-Waste Recycling and Consulting for businesses and organisations on how to reduce waste. We provide information and resources for the public and run community workshops on a variety of environmental topics.

The Funding Coordinator will work closely with the CEO to support the development and implementation of NEC’s funding strategy. This will ensure the delivery of key community programmes such as, Kai Rescue – Currently sharing over 2.5 tonnes of food per week to those that need it most and E-Waste – reusing, recycling and repurposing over 20 tonnes of electronic waste per year.

The purpose of the Funding Coordinator is to identify funding opportunities for current and upcoming NEC Programmes and to develop and submit applications. Assist with the project coordination and reporting of existing programmes funded by the Ministry for the Environment (or other funding bodies). Identify and support in the management of donor relationships on key grants. Seek new opportunities and assist in the delivery of key funding activities and events.
