Marketing and Events Coordinator at The Suter Art Gallery

Administered by a charitable trust the Suter Art Gallery’s primary objective is to provide the people of Nelson and visitors to the region, access to our cultural heritage and to the many forms of contemporary cultural expression. We enjoy considerable support through our membership base of over 450 although we are looking to grow this to at least 1,000.

Alongside our ever-changing exhibitions and collections, we host a bustling café, sell a range of beautiful objects crafted by local artists in our store and offer a variety of art classes for children and adults. We house the Suter Theatre with tiered seating for 150 plus two accessible spaces. The new digital projector provides outstanding picture clarity, and the intimate venue is a wonderful space to experience live performances or to use as a venue for lectures and meetings.

This new position of marketing and events coordinator has been created to showcase the Gallery thus helping to ensure its longevity.

The opportunity

You will create and deliver innovative ways of marketing and promoting gallery exhibitions, public programmes, events and other Suter activities. We aim to make the most of our modern venue and you will set up promotions and events with relevant marketing and publicity. You will have brand management experience, be active on social media, write for our website, newsletter and local magazines and produce advertising and publications that engage our community. The role involves extensive membership communication, meeting new members and attending networking events. You will contribute to the overall team effort but take ownership of your own projects and see them through to completion.

Your background

You must be quick on your feet and multi-talented – an “all-rounder”. You will be experienced with online tools, social media and content management systems. Previous experience in an arts organisation, event management, public relations, retail promotion, media sales, or seminar/conference organisation would be preferred. Your networking skills will be excellent. The key is that you make things happen and are comfortable generating positive publicity for the Suter. An education in communications or marketing would be ideal. Excellent written and spoken English language skills are mandatory. You will be sensitive to cultural issues and understand Treaty of Waitangi principles.

Your personality

This is a doer and very ‘hands on’ role. You must be enthusiastic, energetic, flexible and versatile to take on the diverse range of tasks you will get involved with.

What next

This role is permanent, initially part time at 32 hours per week but could grow. If you have the qualities we are seeking and wish to put your unique stamp on the role, please apply now. Applicants must be eligible to work in NZ.

Please include your cover letter and CV to Donna Scholfield at Chapman Employment Relations before the vacancy closes on Friday 26 March 2021.
