Now is a great time to start your career with us. When you work at Hutt City Council you have the opportunity to do your bit to create a better city, every day.  We're working together towards the same goals, we know where we're going, and know how we're going to get there.

Hutt City Museums is looking for friendly, motivated and hard-working people to join our Front of House team as casual hosts. Working at either The Dowse Art Museum or Petone Settlers Museum, flexible availability is key across weekdays, weekends and evenings as we are open 7 days a week and hours are variable.

Our Hosts are the welcoming and informative face of The Dowse Art Museum and Petone Settlers Museum, and of course are also ambassadors for Hutt City.

The role of the Hosts is to create an inviting and positive experience for all visitors and customers by:

  • Being the first point of contact for all visitors - providing information and assisting with queries
  • Liaising with venue hire clients to ensure the smooth running of events and functions
  • Assisting with public programmes and events
  • Providing retail services in the MINE store

To succeed in this role, you will have a passion for customer and visitor service, enjoy creating a positive environment for others, and thrive on working as part of a team with strong values and objectives.

The Dowse team is close-knit, skilled and enthusiastic. Your work will be diverse, and we work hard to provide good career and skill development opportunities for our staff.

Our workplace is collaborative and connected - a place where you'll feel proud to be part of what's going on. By sharing knowledge, and by constantly learning and improving, you'll be well placed to take advantage of opportunities to grow personally and professionally.  We're committed to your wellbeing, and we'll work with you to be the best you can be.
