  • Experience in the planning and delivery of elements required to host international government events.
  • Minimum 4-5 years’ experience in successfully delivering aviation related and airport projects specific to large events or complex logistical operations.
  • Relevant experience and existing working relationships with New Zealand airports and aviation organisations.

You will be the kind of person who plans ahead to avoid last minute pressure and stress.  You'll be focused on results and understand how to effectively influence people to achieve them.

The role is initially Wellington based, with frequent travel to Auckland.
