Waikato Museum Te Whare Taonga o Waikato

This is a rare opportunity for a creative and hands-on Communications and Marketing Assistant to start their career with three of Hamilton’s top visited spots!

The Organisation

Hamilton is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and Hamilton City Council is investing in and enabling the opportunities this presents with its biggest-ever capital works programme. Hamilton City Council’s 10-Year Plan lays out a vision to develop world class community infrastructure, supporting the development of healthy and thriving communities.  Waikato Museum Te Whare Taonga o Waikato, Hamilton Gardens and Hamilton Zoo Waiwhakereke Natural Heritage Park are integral to a thriving Hamilton community!

The Role

These Hamilton hot spots need a Communications and Marketing Assistant to support our communications and marketing team.

The Person

We’re looking for a Communications and Marketing Assistant who likes being busy and can manage multiple projects and tasks. You’ll enjoy the flexibility and variety of working at the Gardens, Museum and Zoo. You’ll have great relationship management skills, and a willingness and attitude to support the team with whatever tasks need to be done. Proven writing, marketing and social media management skills are a given and of course, interpersonal skills – communication, team effectiveness and the know how to work collaboratively is a must in this position!

This is a full time, permanent position. To provide the best visitor experience, this needs to be a 7-day week operation. This role will require you to work the occasional weekend, public holiday, and evening to cover social media or assist at events.
