Alongside having good computer skills, ideally, you will:

  • Be comfortable working and communicating with a range of different people, including our valued visitors, volunteers, Friends, and the Trustees.
  • Have knowledge of accounting processes, and if you are familiar with Xero, all the better!
  • Be a team player, and prepared to develop, learn, and actively seek out opportunities to help the Museum grow and achieve its vision.
  • Be able to balance priorities and remain flexible and outcome-focused under pressure.

Why work with Cobblestones Museum:

  • You’ll have the pleasure of working in a beautiful environment including extensive landscaped grounds and several beautiful historic buildings;

  • We offer a living wage, with opportunities to grow your role and remuneration (subject to funding);
  • You’ll meet and welcome people to the Museum from across Aotearoa and the globe!

If this sounds like the opportunity you have been waiting for, then please do not hesitate to apply with your CV and Cover Letter. In your application, tell us what excites you about this role, and how you would bring your skills and energy to help our fabulous museum grow and retain its position as a premier visitor attraction in Wairarapa.  When preparing your application, keep in mind the Museum’s Vision and Strategic Goals for 2022-2025:
