  • ​Do you get excited about our awesome creative sector landscape?
  • Rare opportunity to be a part in delivering on our city's creative future!
  • Be bold, be innovative and have an impact!

Stamp your mark by delivering the Council's new Aho Tini 2030 strategy that sets a new cultural direction for the city.

Kia mahi ngātahi mō Pōneke mō tōna āpōpō Working together for Wellington's future.

Wellington is a lively city with a thriving cultural life, talented people, cutting-edge businesses, and a busy centre of government. Arts, culture and creativity are important to Wellingtonians and give us a strong sense of identity. Council has adopted the  Aho Tini 2030 - Arts, Culture and Creativity Strategy that is designed to further support the arts and the artists in the Capital and we are hiring! The strategy aims to build on our rich cultural traditions and identity of our capital city - it focuses on access and inclusion in the arts sector, higher visibility of Ngā Toi Māori, the success of the city's artists and arts organisations, and activating the city's places and spaces.

There are three positions who will form the backbone of the new Creative Capital team:

As part of the Creative Capital leadership team, the Aho Tini programme manager will drive, coordinate and oversee the delivery of the Aho Tini strategy and its related programmes of work. We're looking for a passionate and innovative leader to work across Council & with our external partners to bring Aho Tini to life.  You will be both highly strategic and intentional in your approach and have a strong focus on execution and impactful delivery.

In the first instance, you'll be captivated by the opportunity to deliver the partnership at the heart of Aho Tini between the Council and the creative sector for the benefit of Wellingtonians. And you'll have the experience, background and a wide frame of reference to bring this into being.

We are interested in hearing from people with experience in a similar senior role in shaping up and managing large programmes of work across multiple organisations. You will bring significant experience in applying, programme management tools, practices and processes - including project planning, budget management, programme reporting, risk management and assurance. Bringing stakeholders together, establishing partnerships, influencing positive outcomes, and facilitating collaborative relationships are just some of the hallmarks of your success in previous roles. You will also bring a good understanding of how to operate effectively in a multi-faceted environment and have a strong commitment to developing Wellington as NZ's leading creative city and ensuring our arts, culture and broader creative industries thrive.

Drawing on the city's strengths and traditions of creativity, Aho Tini reflects on what the generations before us have laid down and charts a course for the future. If this would get you jumping out of bed each day, then let's chat!
