Casual Guide/Administration Position 


The Ngāi Tahu Māori Rock Art Trust is currently seeking a positive and outgoing individual to
fill the dual role of Guide at Te Ana Ngāi Tahu Rock Art Centre and to assist
with administration as required.

The successful applicant will have a passion for Ngāi Tahu culture, a desire to continually
build their knowledge in this area, and the ability to share their knowledge with people from
all walks of life – from international travellers, to school children, local residents, and Iwi
members interested in reconnecting with their heritage. Excellent people skills are required
to excel in this role, and an ability to deliver consistently high-quality visitor experiences.

Good organisational skills are required, as well as an ability to learn. Computer
competency of Microsoft software and cash handling are essential.  Some training will be
provided with our booking systems and administration tasks. Previous experience in
guiding would be an advantage although full training will be given. As guided tours are
delivered both at Te Ana Ngāi Tahu Rock Art Centre and at the rock art sites at our property
at Ōpihi, a good level of fitness is required.

This is a casual, on-call role. Te Ana Ngāi Tahu Rock Art Centre and the Timaru Information
Centre are open seven days a week, so all applicants must be willing and able to work on
weekdays, weekends and public holidays. A full driver’s licence and proven record of work
attendance are essential; applicants will be required to undergo a police vetting check
before an offer of employment is confirmed.

Applications close Tuesday 3 rd of December 2019
Please send a cover letter and CV to Te Ana Team Leader, Rachel Solomon, 2 George St,
Timaru or by email to, or fill in the form below.
