Job Description

Brightstar is NZ's leading conference, summits and expo company. For over 25 years, we have supported NZ organisations in their learning and connections through 3,000 conferences, meetings, expos, awards and training courses

We are looking for a Conference On-day Host to assist with customer facing duties at our business conferences, awards and expos in Auckland.

If you have some spare time on your hands and would like to use it profitably, this could be just the role for you!

  • Do you like meeting people, making them feel at home and ensuring things run smoothly?
  • Would you like to work approximately 60 days a year, so you still have time to do all those other things you want to?
  • Are you flexible in what days you work (Monday-Friday) and are able to commit to full days (6.30am-5:00pm, occasionally up to 8:00pm)?

At our events you will be the first person our delegates, sponsors and speakers meet when they arrive. You will look after them throughout the day, making sure they feel well looked after, are catered at the right times and be available to make sure they have everything they need to relax and enjoy their event experience.

You will be a key part of the team delivering events on the day, starting with greeting and registering our attendees, handing out name badges, liaising with the venue and Conference Manager, and assisting with administration.

It's not rocket science, but it is a fun, customer facing role for the right person and would suit someone who is outgoing, efficient and organised. You need to work well as part of the event team, like people and enjoy customer service – it is essential our Hosts are friendly, smiling, helpful, willing and welcoming.

The work will vary between days of the week. Some weeks are very busy with several events running, while on other weeks we may not have any events. As this is a casual role, our roster may not suit you if you already have other regular Monday-Friday commitments.

Please note this role requires a reasonable level of fitness as you will be moving around the building and be on your feet for long periods of time.

If this sounds like you, please send your CV and covering letter explaining why this role interests you and why you think you would be suitable.  Please note, applications without a covering letter will not be considered.

Applications close: 15th February 2023 

Applicants for this position must already have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
