Auckland War Memorial Museum: Connecting through sharing stories of people, lands and seas.

Auckland Museum is a much-loved culture and heritage organisation at the heart of Auckland’s identity, committed to outstanding management of its world-class collections and the employees and volunteers who tell the Museum’s stories.

We encourage candidates to share their talents at this unique workplace, which embraces diversity and both acknowledges and nurtures our bicultural capabilities, as demonstrated in our Teu le Va and He Korahi Maori strategies.

We are seeking an experienced manager to lead a team of committed and passionate curatorial staff in the Human History area. The successful candidate will provide leadership, guidance and consistency to a range of curatorial activities including collection development, documentation, research and public enquiries and access to enhance the relevance and value of the collections. The Curatorial Support Manager will lead a team of Project, Associate and Assistant Curators, supporting the Head of Human History and the Curators of collections and disciplines in the Human History department. In addition, this permanent and full time role will be responsible for providing key business support to the Head of Human History in the key areas of strategy, finance and reporting.

So if you are ready to work in a dynamic environment and enjoy the possibilities and variety generated by museum collections, we’re keen to hear from you.

To be successful in this full time role, you will offer:

  •  Relevant tertiary qualification is essential, preferably post-graduate in a field relevant to the Museum’s human history collections and activities
  • A Museum Studies degree would be desirable
  • Demonstrated experience as a team-player and successful manager of people, resources and projects in a mid to large size organisation, preferably within a public sector institution
  • Demonstrated ability to work across all research disciplines that exist within the Museum and contribute to the strategic direction of the organization
  • A high level of knowledge and understanding of the research and research funding imperatives of a Museum
  • Knowledge and experience of requirements for the safe handling, packing, conservation, display and storage of museum objects to current museum standards
  • Flexibility with working hours, including some evenings, holidays and/or weekends as required

You must be eligible to currently work in New Zealand to apply for this permanent position.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to be part of a fabulous New Zealand organisation committed to telling our national and Auckland stories, reflecting our unique place in the South Pacific.
