Current Vacancies

Executive Assistant

We are expanding our administration team to ensure our Executive Management team have the support they need to deliver the desired results for the Dunedin Airport. 

The Organisation

Dunedin Airport based in Momona is an iconic landmark serving the city of Dunedin and the Otago & Southland regions. The airport catered for over 1 million passengers per year pre covid and we are already up to nearly 90% of previous passenger numbers travelling through Dunedin Airport.

It is a public company owned equally by Dunedin City Holdings Ltd (DCHL) and the New Zealand Government.

The airport is a unique place to work. There are people off on holiday or a business trip, saying farewell to friends or whanau who’ve been visiting, or welcoming those coming to enjoy the wonderful opportunities available through the gateway of the south that is Dunedin airport. 

The Role

This is a part-time, 24 hours per week flexible position, between Monday to Friday role, reporting directly to the CEO, however being responsible to the entire Executive leadership team for their respective administrative needs. This position is vital in being the ‘right arm’ so to speak for each of the Executive team members and functional support for the People & Culture space. 

The role is extremely varied in its requirements. Its main purpose is to be the primary administrative support for the executive team including diary management, travel arrangements, event arrangements/management, meeting preparations, board/report papers, catering, conference centre oversight and confidential documentation support.

The Person

The role is best suited to an organised person; a person who enjoys flexibility in their tasks and is yet able to react as required to urgent needs or tasks charged to them. 

The person we seek has previous experience of supporting a team of executives with diary management, travel bookings, events, and confidential administrative needs. This person has ‘discretion’ as their middle name and will respect that they may be privy to conversations at an executive level. 

This person has exceptional computer skills, able to use all MS Office suite products to an advanced level. The person we require will be able to deliver a top-notch presentation pack, have delivered high level board paper packs, even written letters as required to key stakeholders ready for the executive to review and sign off. 

Basically, you’re the admin rock star; the ‘go to’ person for the leadership team you support; the top of your field and, without arrogance, you back yourself in your skills and abilities. 

You’re looking for a part-time role as it suits your lifestyle. You are flexible with your hours and respect a relationship which offers ‘give and take’. 

The person we are looking for believes in people first, being supportive in nature, accountable in their delivery and possesses a positive, happy, and friendly personality.   

Skills & Attributes Required

You have at least three years’ experience in a similar role and pride yourself on your skill set in this area. You’re a problem solver and work to ensure the whole team achieves the desired goals together. 

The airport offers a good pro-rata remuneration package including a company well-being programme, including an on-site gym for your use and free car parking. 

If this sounds like something you believe you’re up for, you have a clean driver’s licence and your own transport, we wish to hear from you. Please send your CV and cover letter, outlining which role is your preference and why you believe you are the person we are looking for, to Victoria Robertson, Head of People & Culture, via email to vrobertson@dnairport.co.nz.
