Tumuaki – Māori Projects and Development – Part Time (0.5FTE)
Auckland War Memorial Museum, Tāmaki Paenga Hira, is one of New Zealand’s leading museums and most popular tourist attractions. We provide compelling visitor experiences for people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures.
We strive to be bi-cultural in our approach and are committed to constructing he Kōrahi Māori, a Māori dimension of Auckland Museum that is visible and valued. Our future planning will be created on the understanding that a bi-cultural foundation is at the heart of the Museum’s internal processes and communication, and the way it expresses itself through brand, all visitor-facing activity, and stakeholder relationships. In developing our Master Plan for the decades ahead, Auckland Museum aims to extend public engagement with the collections, whether on-site, off-site or on-line. In particular, Auckland Museum wishes to enrich linkages with Māori communities in relation to the Museum’s stewardship of taonga.
In order to deliver on our aspirations, we need to fortify Māori leadership in the area of Māori Projects and Development. In collaboration with the Museum’s Pae Arahi (Māori Partnership and Development Executive), the Tumuaki will support our on-going work to strengthen Māori values within the Museum and help to build up confidence in the effectiveness of the institution as an engaging and collaborative partner with Māori people and their communities.
We are looking for someone that possesses a thorough, personal understanding of the needs and protocols of local and national iwi and someone that has the intellect and wisdom to perceive fresh opportunities for the Museum to build up its reputation and grow as a partner of choice for iwi.
Reporting to the Director (CEO), this position will guide and advise the Director, and the Executive Team in the implementation of the Museum’s legislated Māori responsibilities as set out in the Auckland War Memorial Museum Act 1996 and in the policies that stem from it.
The successful applicant will demonstrate a genuine commitment to the development of Māori values within a bi-cultural local and national context. Furthermore, they will have working knowledge of ways to develop approaches to engagement with diverse peoples to accomplish learning objectives. We will look for evidence of outstanding achievement, with proof of leadership, interpersonal and influencing skills.
Be part of a fabulous NZ institution, now in its 160th year; help to reinforce its potential to flourish and grow stronger for the future.
