With an opening date and now more than 70 events locked in Te Pae Christchurch has launched a major recruitment drive for the first of New Zealand’s new generation of convention centres.

The venue, which will open its doors in October is looking to fill about 100 casual positions across its culinary services, event services and venue presentation teams.

“As a key regeneration project, Te Pae Christchurch has a responsibility to the city of Ōtautahi Christchurch to drive ongoing economic and social impact. Providing meaningful employment is an important part of meeting those obligations,” said Te Pae’s General Manager Ross Steele.

“There may be people who want to work with us because of the difference we will make to our city, others because they are interested in the building’s design or technology, or because they want a career in the hospitality sector. We’d love to hear from them all.”
