Work type
Work classification
Community & Access Arts, Culture & Heritage, Other


The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora is an entire city block of stunning heritage buildings in central Ōtautahi Christchurch, filled with a vibrant array of arts organisations, events, museums, galleries and boutique retailers.  An independent charitable trust, The Arts Centre has now restored and reopened over two-thirds of its heritage buildings after the 2010-2011 earthquakes.

As we repopulate, we want to ensure all visitors feel welcome at The Arts Centre and are seeking volunteers to meet, greet, and inform local and international visitors across the site.

Providing information about The Arts Centre’s history, restoration, venues, programmes, and our wonderful tenant and partner organisations, as well as directions to key facilities would be the main part of your role.

Do you have great communication skills, are friendly, reliable, and well-presented, and have a positive attitude?  A good grasp of the English language is required, with confidence to pronounce te reo Māori words (or the commitment to learn how).  Knowledge of other languages would be an advantage, as would experience in customer facing positions and knowledge of arts and culture.

We will provide you with all the training and information you need, and you get to be part of a fun and dynamic team of like-minded people.

The minimum commitment required is two 2-hour shifts per month for one year, with training beginning in early 2020.  Weekday and weekend shifts are available.

How to apply

If you are interested in applying for the Volunteer Ambassador role, please email hr@artscentre.org.nz for the full role description which can be supplied once the team is back in the office from 6 January 2020.  Applications for this first intake will close at 5pm on Friday 24 January 2020.

To apply please email the following to hr@artscentre.org.nz:

  • A cover email explaining why you want to become a Volunteer Ambassador and why you think you would be good at it.

  • Your CV

  • Details of at least two referees
