Function & Events Manager
Larnach Castle is an award-winning visitor attraction in Dunedin which has a variety of product including tours, accommodation, food & beverage and function business.
Being New Zealand’s only Castle it provides an amazing work environment, remarkable history and is set within internationally recognised gardens and grounds.
The function and events department is one of our key revenue areas which due to the public profile and local attendance to many of our events, makes a significant contribution to Larnach Castle’s ongoing business reputation. A key challenge in managing this department is to understand the wider business picture of Larnach Castle being a major visitor attraction and the seasonal constraints and limitations that this places on the function departments activities.
We are seeking an individual who thrives on working in a fast-paced environment, someone who has exceptional organisational skills but also has an eye for detail.
The position reports directly to the General Manager and the candidate must have previous experience in the tourism or hospitality industry in a management role.
If this sounds like you and you enjoy working with a variety of people and have a “can do attitude” with a great sense of humour, we would like to hear from you. A current managers certificate and drivers’ licence, and a willingness to work flexible hours are essential.
Please ensure you meet the above criteria, and applicants who are legally entitled to work in New Zealand will only be considered.
