At Tāmaki Paenga Hira, Auckland War Memorial Museum, the collections, the work we undertake and the experiences we offer, inspire curiosity.
So it comes as no surprise that when we’re looking for new people to join our team, we’re looking for professionals who aren’t just accomplished in terms of the skills they bring, but have an innate passion for the work we do and an appreciation of the place we have in the hearts and minds of Aucklanders.
Post COVID-19, the Museum is flexing towards a different future, which means we’re going to need to be innovative and agile if we are to meet the ambitious goals we have set for ourselves.
Like all great museums, we spark curiosity about the world in which we live – past, present and future.
Our Brand & Customer Engagement team are focused on sharing the stories of our collections, communities and people and our natural environment.
As one of Auckland’s leading visitor attractions, now more than ever we want to connect with our Auckland communities and Kiwis right across the country to drive awareness of, and visitation to, our museum.
And of course, we’re looking forward to welcoming international tourists back to our shores when it’s safe to do so.
This is an important role in our marketing team, contributing to our brand perception through the creation and loading of website content that uses the Museum’s key message framework (Paerewa). The Museum has a vast website, which serves many purposes from keeping the visiting public informed about what’s on the Museum, to sharing stories of our collections and research. We need an experience content master and accomplished writer to produce and deploy content from our website.
Reporting to the Digital Marketing Manager and working alongside the Social Media Producer & Digital Executive, the success of this role will come from an understanding and experience of web CMS, web architecture and software applications. You’ll be well versed at learning and mastering CMS platforms, and will be able to quickly get up to speed with our system to load content, presenting it in the best way possible. You’ll be required to edit copy supplied by the stakeholders across the organisation before deploying content to our website, and at times will be required to proposed copy from scratch. This will range from events and exhibition to Pacific Language Week content, to blogs. You’ll work with our team to select imagery and liaise with internal stakeholders to gather content and gain sign off prior to deploying page updates or new pages.

- Experience in writing for digital platforms, both short and long form
