Exhibitions and Collections Manager

Toitū Otago Settlers Museum

Dunedin is an amazing place to live and work, and if you were to ask anyone living here, they'll tell you that there's something indescribably special about our city. It's small enough to feel like you're part of a community, but big enough to ensure that there's always something going on. From the great outdoors to arts, culture and education, all within 10 minutes of the city centre. Dunedin has so much to offer, so why not come and feel just how special it is?

Toitu Otago Settlers Museum is an award winning and dynamic cultural hub celebrating the stories of the people of Dunedin whose character culture technology and creativity shaped New Zealand’s first great city.

This newly created role reporting to the Director Museums and Galleries and part of our leadership team offers an energetic and strategic leader the opportunity to help shape this new team responsible for the care and development of our collections as well as the ongoing provision of permanent and temporary exhibition programming at Toitū Otago Settlers Museum.

If this sounds like you, then we would welcome your application.
