Tourism Operations Manager – Art Deco Trust
Experienced Tourism Operations Manager for world-renowned tourism operations
Art Deco Trust is a guardian, a storyteller, and an interpreter of some of New Zealand’s unique treasures: The guardian of a collection of beautiful art deco buildings constructed after the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake and fire; the storyteller of courageous people who were able to imagine a different kind of city and adopt the energy and optimism of a modern art and design movement to create it; and the interpreter of the spirit of Art Deco to contemporary audiences in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand and beyond.
The Trust is looking for an experienced, well presented, and hardworking professional to join our team as the Tourism Operations Manager.
This is a diverse role that includes overseeing the operations for our volunteer-led guided walks and tours and retail businesses and managing our extensive volunteer network. This is a hands-on role, providing oversight and leadership within a tight-knit team.
The role requires someone with proven tourism operations experience, attention to detail, a flair for retail, quality assurance, strong communications, and exceptional interpersonal skills. As well as experience in management, they will take pride ensuring high-quality experiences that exceed our visitors’ expectations.
The successful applicant must have experience working in the not-for-profit sector, and an appreciation for Napier’s art deco era heritage. Experience working with diverse groups of people is essential, as is the ability to ensure that every visitor experience is world class.
This is a permanent full-time position. Art Deco Trust is a 7-days a week tourism operation, so you will need to be available to support some weekends and public holidays.
We are an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status although applicants must have existing rights to work in New Zealand.
