Auckland development manager and booth host
We've been runing our photo booth business in Auckland for eight years now, and the mothership is based in Wellington. With our own increasing family size, there has been a decrease in attention on keeping our business up here ship shape. And we need someone to bring it back from the brink, and to enjoy the rewards of doing so.
Photo booths were 'the big thing' a few years back, and now they are more of an event and party staple - so we can't keep doing the same old trick, and we have some new and exciting products coming up. More importantly, are people. The Amazing Travelling Photo booth is looking for a self starting marketing maven with technical and people skills to be able to recover and grow our business back in the Auckland region. We need someone with a hometown advantage to bring it back to life - and prepare the way for introducing new lines in the guest photography and activation market.
You’ll know the drill, show up and show off, on time and with style. And be able to take care of the preparation and follow up tasks related to an event. You'll get your kicks our of watching people get excited about photographing themselves at some of the most memorable events of their lives, and you'll be curious about new ways that you can make that even more interesting and exciting. You'll understand that work begets work, and have a good reputation as a reliable and dependable person. You'll be good at bragging on social media about your exploits, and also, know when not to. You'll be focussed on growth and can see that every situation possesses opportunities for helping another person have an amazing celebration.
