  • A rare opportunity to be involved in a major international arts and cultural event
  • The chance to work in a dynamic environment with an experienced team
  • Potential for flexible hours (scaling up as the event approaches)

Established in 2000, the World Choir Games has become the largest choral festival and competition on the globe. With a strong focus on participation above winning, the Games are renowned for bringing together all nations and cultures in a joyful celebration of creativity, diversity, friendship and peace.

For the first time ever, the Games will be held in Auckland, from 10 to 20 July 2024.

Hosted by the New Zealand Choral Federation and delivered by Chor 2024 Limited, the World Choir Games 2024 will be of a truly international scale: over 10,000 singers from more than 50 countries are projected to attend.

The competition will take place across a range of central city venues, while the festival consists of an Olympic-style parade; large opening, awards and closing ceremonies at Spark Arena; ticketed evening concerts and free day-time performances across Tāmaki Makaurau.

The Role
The Marketing and Communications Manager will be responsible for developing and implementing campaigns that effectively promote the World Choir Games 2024 to New Zealand audiences.

You will work closely with both the Executive Director and Artistic & Games Director to increase public awareness, engagement and participation in the Games.
