Dunedin is an amazing place to live and work, and if you were to ask anyone living here, they'll tell you that there's something indescribably special about our city. It's small enough to feel like you're part of a community, but big enough to ensure that there's always something going on. From the great outdoors to arts, culture and education, all within 10 minutes of the city centre. Dunedin has so much to offer, so why not come and feel just how special it is?
Manager - Olveston Historic Home

Gifted to the city of Dunedin in 1966, Olveston Historic Home and its collections are presented as a visitor attraction to the public, providing a unique social history experience of architectural and historical significance.

As Manager you will be responsible for developing strong relationships with key tour operators and DCC departments related to tourist attractions in the city, to maximise the revenue potential of the property. You will also oversee the property’s marketing activity and work closely with the Council’s Communications and Marketing Department.

You will lead a team of passionate employees to perform at their best ability to provide excellent customer service while committing to our vision and values. We would like you to have at least five years’ experience in managing a team.

A strong empathy for the heritage environment is required to ensure that together with the Theomin Gallery Management Committee, the home is preserved for the future, in the spirit with which the gift was made.

You will have a relevant degree in business or heritage sector and experience within the business or tourism sectors. A marketing and customer service background is essential, as you will be responsible for the continued high level of service and visitor satisfaction the Olveston Experience provides. 

Applications close Thursday, 27th June 2019.
