There will be lots of variety, from setting up panels and hosting visitors, to paying invoices and monitoring spending, to collating and formatting information.

  • superb organisational skills, 
  • great attention to detail and a flexible ‘can do’ attitude.  
  • Able to juggle competing demands 
  • Ability to work well and engage with others, providing support willingly and positively.

Your ability to prioritise work and build professional rapport with internal and external stakeholders will contribute to your success in this role.

It would be advantageous if you have an understanding of the machinery of government and are familiar with government processes.  You will have a strong grasp of Microsoft Office and ability to quickly learn unfamiliar processes and systems.

Ko wai mātou | About us
Manatū Taonga has a broad mandate and wide reach across a complex system. With around 140 staff, we operate a lean and flat structure, with the added advantage of knowing everyone by name.

We work in a sector that contributes $11 billion to New Zealand’s GDP over 90,000 jobs, ranging from screen production to symphonies, broadcasting to ballet, kapa haka to heritage, and more. Our mahi helps the government promote our unique cultural identity and Aotearoatanga – from policy to programme delivery. With our partners – Māori, public sector agencies and our funded agencies – we connect local communities to cultural experiences to enrich our mātauranga.
