  • Do you enjoy working in a supportive and dynamic team environment?
  • Are you looking for a long-term position with lots of opportunity for career progression?

Then you could be the perfect fit for the Conference Innovators (CI) team!

We opened a Wellington office late last year and we're looking to expand our team even further! We're looking for a committed and enthusiastic conference coordinator to assist our CI Wellington Manager. 

You may be an administration star looking to develop your event coordination skills, or an experienced Conference Manager already – either way, we'd love to talk to you. 

About Us

A CINZ-approved PCO, CI has delivered hundreds of outstanding conferences throughout Australia and New Zealand since 1995. As well as all the exciting international events we've managed, we've built a long list of valued regular national clients we love working with – and they love working with us! 

We're a close-knit team of 20, with offices in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.  We provide a supportive and dynamic environment for our staff, encouraging them to develop and thrive as leading event professionals. 

About The Role

As a CI Conference Coordinator, you will be responsible for assisting our CI Wellington Manager in the successful delivery of conferences and events. You will be responsible for providing ongoing project support and administration, and maintaining excellent working relationships with all suppliers and clients.  You will have the opportunity to work with our many regular conference clients, as well as work on larger one-off international events.

To excel in this role, you must be:

  • Experienced – at least two years' experience in an administration role - and in the conference, event or tourism industry is a big plus!
  • Organised – able to balance multiple demands, prioritise and multitask to meet pressure deadlines with accuracy and efficiency.
  • A 'people person' – we pride ourselves on both our fantastic team dynamic and our enduring relationships with suppliers and clients alike.
  • Technology-savvy – experienced with MS Office Suite, website building, e-marketing/social media and ideally EventsAIR or a similar program.
  • Professional and results-driven – with a focus on delivering events of the highest quality which exceed our clients' expectations.  
  • Solutions-orientated – showing initiative and thinking creatively to overcome potential challenges.
Salary will be dependent on skills and experience. Some domestic travel will be required as part of the role.
