Are you interested in a key role in a dynamic, developing NZ arts organisation in 2013?

The New Zealand Dance Advancement Trust seeks high quality applicants for a part-time contract position as NZDC’s Artistic Administrator for 2013.

NZDC is a vibrant new arts company funded at Kahikatea level by Creative New Zealand. Our vision is to create a sustainable, permanent, high-calibre dance company, with an Auckland home that contributes to the fabric of NZ culture and is dedicated to NZ’s finest contemporary dance practitioners.

Reporting to the Chief Executive/Artistic Director (Shona McCullagh) and working closely with the management/administrative team, you will support the delivery of NZDC’s 2013 artistic projects and programmes.

This role will contribute to the realisation of NZDC’s artistic vision, business and strategic plan to grow the artform, audience and infrastructure for contemporary dance in Aotearoa. In 2013, this includes two Auckland seasons of work, a North Island Tour plus associated activities, ranging from fundraising events, professional workshops to education/youth engagement initiatives.

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute significantly to a new NZ arts company. You will have a passion for the arts, strong administrative/organisational skills – particularly scheduling and recordkeeping – with practical experience in the dance profession, experience in managing budgets, excellent people and management skills, and enjoy a collaborative, energetic and professional working environment.
