Auckland Museum is an influential, and much-loved organisation at the centre of Auckland's identity, committed to sharing the story of the city and its people for Aucklanders and visitors to the city through its collections.

Auckland Museum is well underway with delivery of the first phase of its transformational capital works programme and has established a new five-year strategic plan which contains bold ambitions for it to increase reach and impact.

  • Cross–functional executive leadership experience
  • Created business cases and benefits realisation tracking
  • Strong entrepreneurial and business management skills and can show how you have driven gains in revenue and profit performance
