This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Event and Conference Coordinator to join the Event Services Team at the University of Auckland, and take responsibility for the delivery of both academic conferences and student events held on campus.

You will need to hit the ground running and be able to multi-task and work confidently under pressure.   You’ll need to use your initiative, and work both independently as well as part of a team.  Reporting to the Event Manager, you will work collaboratively with a team of dedicated, innovative and proactive individuals ensuring successful delivery of a wide variety of events – from formal dinners and conferences to concerts and everything in between.

A minimum of 2 – 3 years’ experience in a similar role is required and a qualification in Events is preferred. You must have excellent customer relationship management skills and have experience in all aspects of conference management. You will also need to have experience with EventsAir Software or similar, updating website content (wordpress) and the Microsoft office suite.

This role would suit a go getter with excellent communication skills, effective time management and experience in working with budgets. Experience working within a tertiary institution would be an advantage.
