The award winning and highly regarded NZTrio is this country’s leading piano trio, renowned for its eclectic repertoire, outstanding musicianship and warm kiwi stage presence.  Our long serving Assistant Manager is moving on to pursue her own artistic goals, and we are seeking to replace her with a highly organised, tech savvy person who will work closely with and assist our Manager with all aspects of the Trio’s operations.

You will use your excellent interpersonal and communication skills to liaise with a myriad of external contractors (e.g. venue staff/technicians, piano tuners/movers, caterers, photographers, composers, advertising agents, ticketing agents) as well as take minutes at trustees’ meetings and assist with e-comms and copywriting.

In addition to your generalist administrative skills and experience you will need to have a good grasp of social media advertising, CRM database maintenance (Mailchimp) as well as Photoshop and website management. Basic video editing capabilities are also desirable.
