Do you believe in the power of arts and creativity to change lives?

At Toi Aotearoa Creative New Zealand, we believe that having access to great arts experiences is essential to New Zealanders’ well-being and our country’s unique identity. As the national arts development agency of Aotearoa, we encourage, promote and support the arts, for the benefit of all New Zealanders.

The Manager Investment Services is an active member of the organisation’s third-tier leadership team – and in this role, is responsible for managing a small, high-performing team who provide exceptional client service to deliver, monitor and report on Creative New Zealand’s investments in Aotearoa’s arts infrastructure. This investment is achieved through the Toi Tōtara Haemata and Toi Uru Kahikatea programmes, the Pasifika Festivals Initiative, and the Creative Communities Scheme.

You will work collaboratively with your peers to develop solutions to organisation-wide issues and change, and to support the executive leadership team around organisational vision, strategy, and priorities.

A critical part of this role is to ensure that key stakeholders and clients are provided accurate, timely and high-quality information about these programmes, initiatives and schemes and that investment is managed accountably and with appropriate risk management.

Your success in this role will be built on your strong management accounting skills and experience evaluating business cases, providing financial analysis and risk assessment. You will also have a strong understanding of the issues affecting the arts in New Zealand and an ability to engage with the arts sector in a credible way.

You’ll be confident leading the delivery of both strategic and operational outcomes. Having good political nous, with the ability to build strong, sustainable relationships with a wide range of stakeholders across the arts sector is expected. As a proven people leader, you will enjoy the development and contribution of your team to a vibrant and creative work culture. Previous experience working with governance, management, contract management, financial and legal requirements is required, along with a tertiary qualification in business management, finance, commerce, or equivalent industry experience. Knowledge of grant funding processes would be an advantage.

This role will suit a person with energy, drive, and enthusiasm, who is keen to champion the arts and the contribution artists make to our lives.

In return we offer a positive, supportive, collaborative and flexible working environment with passionate and caring people, as well as an enviable opportunity to work with and for New Zealand’s unique arts sector every day.

We’re advancing strategies to support and develop ngā toi Māori and Pacific arts and are committed to ensuring the preservation of heritage ngā toi Māori and Pacific arts knowledge. It’s an exciting time as our governing board is about to explore what Te Tiriti o Waitangi means for us as an organisation and our work with the arts sector.

Creative New Zealand (the Arts Council of New Zealand Toi Aotearoa) is the national arts development agency. We encourage, promote and support the arts in New Zealand for the benefit of all New Zealanders. We do this by investing in, developing, advocating for and providing leadership in the arts for the benefit of all New Zealanders. We’re funded by the New Zealand Lottery Grants Board and directly from the Government through Vote: Arts, Culture and Heritage.
