The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora is an entire city block of stunning heritage buildings in central Ōtautahi Christchurch, filled with a vibrant array of arts organisations, events, museums, galleries and boutique retailers. An independent charitable trust, The Arts Centre has now restored and reopened over two-thirds of its heritage buildings after the 2010-2011 earthquakes. As we repopulate, we want to ensure all visitors feel welcome at The Arts Centre and are seeking volunteers to meet, greet, and inform local and international visitors across the site. Providing information about The Arts Centre’s history, restoration, venues, programmes, and our wonderful tenant and partner organisations, as well as directions to key facilities would be the main part of your role. The minimum commitment required is two 2-hour shifts per month. Weekday and weekend shifts are available. If you are interested in applying for the Volunteer Ambassador role, please get in touch by emailing Jenny Stuart, firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a full role description. Applications will be viewed continuously with recruitment and training offers 2 or 3 times a year. The current training is planned for September 2022 so we would love your applications now.
Do you have great communication skills, are friendly, reliable, and well-presented, and have a positive attitude? A good grasp of the English language is required, if you are not confidence to pronounce te reo Māori words training is provided. Knowledge of other languages would also be an advantage, as would experience in customer facing positions and knowledge of arts and culture.
