Whiwhinga Mahi

Te Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History is a thriving hub of activity and possibilities.  We’re responsible for innovative education and learning programmes, exciting and inclusive events, and inspiring exhibitions. We care for, and preserve taonga, the treasures that tell our unique stories. Te Manawa is a place for the community and visitors to share in our region’s rich diversity.  We are alive with the colour, noise and activity associated with experiences that explore identity, creativity and ingenuity.

Keep an eye on this page if you’re interested to join a passionate and dedicated team of professionals in our exiting Museum of Art, Science and History. We’re also happy to meet new volunteers!


We’re looking for a learning and education superhero to join our People and Partnerships Team, to share the love of learning in classrooms, school yards, community halls and anywhere else we think we can get people to engage.  As leader of our learning team, you’ll be responsible for development and management of our fledgling multi-dimensional learning framework, which will move Te Manawa towards a mobile, flexible and collaborative delivery model.

In addition you’ll be a creative content developer in either Technology or Science and one other area, an exceptional Educator, and people manager extraordinaire.   This is a full time role, and would suit an Educator looking to apply technical and academic expertise to strike spark, energy and fun into learning in a creative cultural environment.

You will be self-motivated, resourceful, passionate, energetic and able to think on your feet.  You’ll be well connected to Educators across the region, and a confident driver.  You’ll also be at home dealing with diverse cultures, and embrace and celebrate Kaupapa Māori.  Naturally, you’ll love working with people.  As Te Manawa is open seven days, weekend work is required.
