  • Summary:



Te Papa stands proud as an iconic national building housing the treasures of the nation and is a vibrant destination for both national and international visitors.


The Museum & Commercial Services Directorate plays a direct role in enabling Te Papa to deliver on its mission through contributing to the generation of revenue, through identifying and maximising commercial opportunities, partnerships and sponsorship, and through functions such as licencing and events management. Driven by operational excellence our ‘front of house’ capabilities include Visitor Services, Retail and hospitality.


Across the Museum & Commercial Services Directorate, Te Papa employs a large casual workforce, and we are seeking a project manager to plan and manage implementation of a directorate wide workforce planning system that allows us to maximise productivity, maintain service levels and manage wage costs. 


Currently business units across our operation utilise different workforce management tools and methods, hence your key priorities will be to;


  • assess our current systems and operations by working with line and department managers to identify their varying workforce needs and challenges
  • identify and source an appropriate and cost effective system that will meet our objectives
  • project manage implementation of the system and associated processes including training delivery
  • ensure the system and processes implemented set, drive and uphold standards of our casual workforce ensuring compliance with employment legislation


You will also be actively involved in our directorate recruitment process, particularly from a casual and temporary workforce perspective, as this is a key component of ensuring we have the correct system in place to achieve our workforce management objectives.


Our ideal candidate will have:

  • A tertiary qualification(s) in relevant discipline(s) and/or similar experience.
  • Strong project management and workforce planning experience.
  • Previous experience of roster management of a casual workforce across a multi-outlet hospitality operation would be advantageous.
  • Strong working knowledge of employment legislation related to casual employees.
  • Good administrative and organisational skills.
  • Microsoft Office, Excel and preferably previous experience in using roster management software.


This position is a fixed term project based role, expected to last approximately 6 months.


All considered applicants must have the ability to obtain and maintain the legal right to work in New Zealand.
