    The organisation 

    The Trusts Arena (TTA) was opened in 2004 to provide Waitakere and now the wider Auckland community with a multi- purpose facility for the hosting of sporting, leisure, trade and cultural events. 

    TTA is a charitable Trust which operates under a founding document, the Charter, which sets out its community objectives. Since it opened the TTA has held a funding and service agreement with firstly the Waitakere City Council and currently Auckland Unlimited on behalf of Auckland Council. 

    The primary community users include the founding partners the Waitakere Rugby and Athletics Clubs, Waitakere West Auckland Basketball Incorporated, Auckland Roller Derby, Auckland Waitakere Artistic Roller Skating and Touch New Zealand. 

    Over the 17-year history TTA has grown in scope and currently is one of the most visited venues in Auckland with a team highly skilled at delivering both community benefits and commercial outcomes.

    The role 

    The role will suit an individual with proven leadership and general management experience in leading an organisation through a period of sustainable growth and change. The individual will need a relevant qualification, strong commercial acumen /financial skills and a solid understanding of strategy and business development tasks.

    The ideal candidate will have a strong track record in venue management, but candidates with experience in hospitality or sport / recreation management will also be considered. Experience of reporting to and or presenting to a board would be of value.
