We're looking for a new 'Larissa'; the face of our organisation for over 10 years, who is leaving us for an exciting new opportunity and we are therefore, looking for a new Receptionist / Administrator. The 'special someone' who will be the new face of our organisation, will either have a thorough knowledge of tikanga Māori or a desire to learn. We want someone who will be able to make every interaction with manuhiri and staff special. You will be greeting everyone from politicians and business leaders, to our most adored kaumātua, so we're really looking for someone who is at the top of their game.

Our Receptionist / Administrator is the first point of contact for all manuhiri to our Wigram site so it is critical that this person reflects our values of manaakitanga and whanaungatanga. We need a passionate professional that embodies the concepts of culture, citizenship and choice of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, with previous experience in a similar role, superior organisational skills and a desire to make a difference.
