COME AND WORK WITH US!
At Mana, we like to keep it tight. We’re a close-knit crew, working collaboratively across our offices in Wellington and Sydney. We work hard to achieve exceptional results for our clients, and we always aim to have fun doing it. Team culture really matters to us and while culture goes much deeper than employee benefits, areas of commitment and work perks are a good indicator of our priorities. Below is a package of perks each team member gets to enjoy.
We are committed to:
Te Ao Māori
At Mana Communications, we take our commitment to upholding Te Tiriti o Waitangi seriously. This includes offering free te reo Māori training sessions if required, marae visits and learning, undertaking Te Tiriti o Waitangi workshops, and working pro-bono with Māori clients when applicable.
And on the topic of pro-bono clients, we encourage all Mana employees to find pro-bono cause they care about and offer our communications services pro-bono. This has led our team to work with amazing organisations like Wellington Sexual Abuse HELP Foundation, Zealandia, and the Australian Veterans Association.
Healthy work-life balance
We work pretty hard here at Mana, so make sure that we demonstrate a real commitment to a healthy work-life balance. We work fairly consistent set hours, with limited overtime – and recognised when required. Further, we have regular work-from-home days with at least one scheduled company-wide per week, and flexibility to work from home more if you need to get through stuff.
And the perks:
9 – day fortnight
Every two weeks, each office gets to take a Monday off. We alternate the days so that there’s always a team on to support clients. Over the course of the year, this policy means our team annually enjoys an extra 26 days of leave on full pay.
If you stay with Mana Communications for 5 years, you’ll be gifted an additional 5 weeks’ annual leave that year on top of your usual 4-week allocation.
Our two offices enjoy regular work-sponsored social time – such as knocking off for Friday drinks, and team lunches to celebrate birthdays. Our team will take any chance they can get to pop out for some good kai or a sunny beverage after a busy week.
As a company, we try and arrange a weekly wellness activity – often this is yoga, an ocean swim, or an hour-long team walk. Recently our Wellington team has picked up reformer Pilates as a new challenge for the year. All costs are covered by Mana.
All employees at Mana Communications are paid a monthly phone allowance of $50 per month to cover the heavy phone usage that comes with working in a communications role.
All Mana team members are entitled to find courses, development opportunities or training that they’d like to undertake to enhance their professional skills – and Mana will foot the bill.
Having offices on both sides of the Tasman means we like to try and get people together as often as we can. In recent years we’ve held an annual team get-together in person (Covid-permitting) where the NZ and AU teams get together in person. We also like to try and send team members to visit the other office as often as we can, so we get to connect in person.
Further, sometimes with clients working abroad we do our best to arrange international client travel-related opportunities for our team.
Dog friendly offices
Around a third of our team have dogs that we bring into the offices in both Sydney and Wellington regularly. Check out our ‘Team’ page to see who your furry companions might be.
New business bonuses
If you bring in new clients, projects or work to Mana, we offer a new business bonus to all secured new work. The company also issues bonuses annually if the company has performed well.
