Auckland Arts Festival is on the look-out for a multi-tasking and industry-savvy Programme Manager to join the Programming team for Auckland Arts Festival 2022.

Auckland Arts Festival/ Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki Makaurau is a globally recognised celebration of art and culture taking place each March in New Zealand’s largest city.

Presented annually, the 18-day event celebrates people and culture, and showcases the cultural diversity and vibrant energy of Auckland. 

As Programme Manager, you’ll work closely with the Artistic Director and Head of Programming as well as the rest of the programming team around planning, administration, scheduling and delivery of selected projects across the Festival. You’ll work with artists and companies to ensure their projects are successfully delivered and their time with the festival is well supported.

Managing project budgets and timelines, as well as identifying production requirements will be a substantial part of this exciting role that will lead to you being/becoming a proficient user of our festival scheduling software DATAFEST. You will be an excellent and friendly communicator with great attention to detail. You will have the ability to work well in a team while under pressure in a busy festival environment. Experience working on the finance side of performing arts projects is ideal.

The Programme Manager role is a full-time fixed-term position, preferably commencing mid to late August 2021 until 14 April 2022… but we can be flexible for the right person.
