Entertainment Venue Technicians are the hidden heroes of the Aotearoa live events industry. From behind the curtain, technicians dedicate themselves to amplifying the voices of our communities, shining the spotlight on our remarkable local, national and international performers, and to utilising their skills and passion to breathing life into others' creative visions.

Tauranga City Council has an exciting opportunity for a superhero Entertainment Venue Technician to join the Baycourt Community & Arts Centre team as its Technical Production Coordinator on a full-time basis.

Reporting to the Technical Manager, responsibilities include :

  • Meeting with Baycourt's clients to understand their creative vision, technical requirements and ensuring Baycourt's technical resources are in place to deliver on these
  • Leading and developing the venue's team of Casual Technical Assistants
  • Facilitating and assisting in the delivery of Baycourt's Tauranga Teen Technician youth training initiative
  • In addition to being competent to setup and operate Theatrical technical equipment, we're also looking for someone who has :

  • Proven experience in Audio / AV / Lighting / Theatrical Flying
  • Strong ability and confidence to lead and develop tech staff / casuals or contractors
  • Sound organizational skills with the ability to manage multiple projects and prioritise tasks and initiatives from conception to completion
  • Proven ability in delegating tasks successfully
  • Ability to work on own initiative and within a team structure
  • Exceptional communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Digitally savvy, particularly in the Microsoft Office suite
  • Working at heights or electrical qualifications would be a bonus
  • Whilst not essential, someone who has Local Government experience, or an understanding of the theatre / creative arts is desirable.

    This is a perfect opportunity for someone who wants a job where no two days are ever the same, and who wants to contribute to the wairua, mana and vibrancy of the Tauranga Moana arts and culture sector.

    The cherry on top? If successful you will join an innovative and dedicated team that delivers an exciting and varied programme of events presented by international, national and local companies and artists!
