The Eden Garden Society is a not-for-profit charity.  We are seeking a proactive confident person who is well organised, has great phone skills and is comfortable with Microsoft Office packages.

You will put customer service first, be quick to sort out any issues and be diligent in the paperwork.

We offer a gorgeous environment in which to work, a small supportive team and good hours.  The role is Monday to Friday (with occasional weekend work) and can offer flexibility around working from home.

Eden Garden covers over 5 acres of Epsom, nestled under Mount Eden.  We are open to the public from 9-4pm 7 days a week.  We have a shop and cafe serving snacks, lunches and High Teas.  We are also a memorial garden for quiet remembrance of loved ones.  We have three function rooms that cater for Memorials, family celebrations, business away days and festivities.

Recognised by many travel authorities (Trip Advisor, Lonely Planet, The Urban List) as one of Auckland's top destinations, Eden Garden is a truly lovely place to work.

Your role will be to coordinate function bookings from high tea settings to large seminar meetings, assist with fund-raising events, managing the office calendar for three venue spaces, preparing room hire quotes, liaising with clients and café staff, organising art and floral exhibitions, and updating internal databases

You must be an administration all-rounder, meeting and greeting customers, covering reception duties, answering email queries, handling daily cash up and banking responsibilities, membership renewals, updating and maintaining website and social media platform as well as newsletter distributions

You will be using Microsoft Office - mostly Word for preparing documents and Outlook (for emails and calendar).  Using Powerpoint would be an advantage.  You will need to have a great telephone manner - both warm and confident - and be prepared to take the initiative and handle potential customers professionally.
