PRINZ Jobs Board
We are aware that many people are frantically busy, while others have lost contracts and now have additional capacity. During this difficult time, access to the PRINZ Jobs Board will not be limited to members.
There is the capacity for people to list both permanent, fixed-term and contract roles as well as short term project work at no charge. Contractors seeking work can also place a notice stating their availability and services at no charge.
We would also encourage contractors who are PRINZ Members to ensure that they are listed on the PRINZ Consultancy Guide.
Te Pūtahi Whakakakau Tūmatanui o Aotearoa (the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand - PRINZ) was established in 1954 to represent the public relations and communication management profession in New Zealand.

Members are drawn from in-house and agency practice across all industry sectors, from corporate to government to community. Members are required to agree to the PRINZ Code of Ethics.
PRINZ offers members access to resources, tools and professional support including professional development programmes, networking opportunities and events, industry awards, and international alliances.
