Communications and Business Development Manager
A festival of literature and ideas, the Auckland Writers & Readers Festival believes in the power of the written word – in all its formats. This iconic organisation celebrates acclaimed writers and thousands of readers every year serving as matchmaker and taste influencer.
A key position has become available within our small team. This full-time year-round position manages the funding and communications aspects of the Festival including sponsorship, grants and patronage; manages hospitality functions and communication channels; and coordinates promotional activities.
This is a diverse and challenging role which will involve understanding of both commercial and philanthropic environments.
It is envisaged this role will be filled by someone from a public relations or publishing background, who potentially has a degree in communications or who has perhaps worked in sales and marketing, and who has a genuine attraction and passion for literature and writing in its various forms so he/she can communicate about it believably and with integrity.
If you have excellent written and communication skills, assurance in commercial settings balanced with thoughtful confidence with private donors, please send your CV to Anne Rodda, General Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE NOTE: This position has already been filled.
