Ticketing Executive – Three Week Contract

Posted on:

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Ticketing Executive (three-week contract) to join us for the 2024 World of WearableArt (WOW) Show season.

We’re dedicated to ensuring show-goers have a wonderful experience right from ticket purchase to when they leave the arena, so we’re looking for someone solutions-focused, fast-thinking and with buckets of care.

Reporting to the Ticketing Manager, this role will be responsible for supporting all aspects of ticketing for the 2024 Show Season, from Wednesday 25 September to Sunday 13 October. Evening and weekend work required. Exact roster to be discussed. You’ll also be available for training in the lead up to the show season at a mutually agreed time.

We’re looking for someone who has at least 2 years’ ticketing experience – ideally for a largescale event or venue. Experience in PatronBase is an advantage.

You’ll be a sales-minded, customer-focused problem solver, who can think on your feet and handle the box office with confidence for periods of sole duty, as well as alongside the Ticketing Manager. You’ll be great with people and a quick learner.

We are looking for a candidate located in Wellington, however are open to exploring alternatives for the right candidate if we’re unable to fill the position locally. The position is located at TSB Arena, Wellington Central.

Work at WOW

WOW is the world’s leading wearable art experience, and encompasses a renowned international wearable art competition, and Aotearoa’s single largest theatrical production.

As a platform for artists, we’re passionate about championing creativity. If you enjoy working in a stimulating creative environment, are a team player, and have a passion for the arts then you'll love working for WOW.
