Are you a talented imaging technician with an appetite for variety and customer engagement?


We are looking for an outgoing, commercially-savvy, digital technician to help us digitise cultural heritage materials and support our customers’ equipment in our busy Auckland bureau. The role also includes customer liaison.

Proficiency with Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite and familiarity with photo editing processes are essential. Time and project management skills, and an ability to work independently are also important in this role as staff work on a number of projects at once.
