Ignite and fuel children’s creative spark! We are looking for an experienced and organised creative professional to manage the development and delivery of our vibrant and inspiring Capital E public programmes. If you are dedicated and passionate about the role creativity and the arts has in enhancing the skills and lives of children and young people through innovative programming and partnerships, this is the role for you.

In the role you will manage, develop and deliver a range of engaging events, activities and projects for, with and by tamariki and rangatahi. This position will be primarily based at Capital E.

This is part of a newly expanded team which draws in diverse audiences to understand, enjoy and form a deeper appreciation of our experiences. Each member of the team brings different skills and lenses to their programming, and holds responsibility for different portfolios – Science, Art, History and, in this case, Children and Young People. You will work collaboratively with this team and across the six sites of Experience Wellington.

This is a great opportunity to join a new and innovative team to make a vital contribution to creative lives of children and young people, working in close collaboration with artists, creative practitioners, partners and stakeholders.  In addition, you embrace the journey towards te ao Māori, looking for opportunities to both improve your own knowledge, but how to provide a Māori dimension to everything we do.

We are looking for a person who brings deep experience and broad knowledge around developing, implementing and evaluating programming for, with and by children and young people, as well as energy, imagination and resourcefulness. If you possess these attributes and relish working in a fast  paced, supportive, creative environment, please get in touch.

Capital E is one of Experience Wellington’s six experiences that provides the city with world-class museums, cutting-edge contemporary art, the region’s only publicly accessible space science experience and the only facility in New Zealand dedicated to tamariki and their creativity.

Our visitor experiences include: Capital E, Space Place at Carter Observatory, City Gallery Wellington, Nairn Street Cottage, Wellington Museum and the Cable Car Museum. 

Applications close on 30 August 2021.
