Dunedin Venues Management Ltd (DVML) is home to the most sophisticated and versatile event facilities in southern New Zealand.  Its portfolio includes the world class Forsyth Barr Stadium and the majestic Dunedin Centre which is a multi-purpose entertainment, conference and events hub.  

DVML has built its reputation on its ability to deliver world-class events and has proven itself time and time again as the go-to for premier events and entertainment in the lower South Island.  We have an exciting opportunity for someone with event delivery experience to join our dynamic team as an Events Co-ordinator, focused mostly on the delivery of Business Events.

This is a full-time permanent role which requires lots of flexibility in your approach to working hours.  While some days and even weeks you’ll be rostered on 8:30am-5pm there are lots of other times you’ll need to be available to work on weekend days, start earlier and work into the evening to meet event and client requirements. 


This role requires someone with  awesome customer service, organisational and time management skills, who is also innovative, creative and passionate about delivering exceptional event experiences.  Along with this you’ll:

  • Have a high level of experience in the Event Management industry
