Amazing opportunity to work within the Events and Venues Team
Customer Support Officer, Ticketing (Former Employee) –  New Plymouth, Taranaki30 January 2017
The job itself was a great opportunity to gain access to the Events industry in New Plymouth. I have learnt alot through my placement in council and am thankful for the opportunity I had. The most enjoyable part was providing positive and exceptional customer service and building relationships with our customers. Where I could greet them first name, or continue a conversation we had during their last visit. Listening, understanding and exceeding customer expectations is what I aimed for. Unfortunate circumstances with management lead to my resignation but the job itself was one that I definitely love and greatly miss.

Team Leader
Team Leader BST (Former Employee) –  New Plymouth1 December 2014
I enjoyed working with the team but did not enjoy being team leader. I am a hands on person who likes to help others. Found it more fulfilling being a member of the team and not the leader.

Toughest part of the job is the weather and the most enjoyable part was the satisfaction of preparing great facilities.
