Event Manager – ASB Classic


Tennis New Zealand and Tennis Auckland are responsible for delivering the ASB Classic. The ASB Classic is New Zealand’s premier annual sporting event combining the best of international tennis with music, food, fashion and entertainment across two weeks in January.  The ASB Classic aims to attract a high achiever to join their Tournament team which has been recognised as the Best International Event on the WTA tour on multiple occasions in the last ten years.


As Event Manager for the ASB Classic, you will be responsible for providing support across many of the core areas of the event. Specifically, this includes responsibility for the venue presentation, ticketing and access control, volunteer team coordination, sustainability and general logistics.

This is a very broad role that will touch on all elements of running a large-scale international event and therefore require you to work with a variety of stakeholders including sponsors, event contractors, ticketing agent, host broadcaster, event security agency, player services, volunteers, Tennis New Zealand and Tennis Auckland staff and other key suppliers.

It will suit someone who thrives in the fast-paced nature of major events.  You will be a self-starter with a high work rate, attention to detail with a creative and collaborative approach.


  • Proven experience in event or project management as well as an understanding of major events best practice.
  • Highly organised with outstanding strong attention to detail and communication skills.
  • Outstanding relationship management skills across diverse stakeholders.
  • Self-starter, flexible and adaptable with the ability to manage multiple tasks at a time.
  • Solutions focused with a willingness to accept new innovations and methodologies.
  • Display organised work practices and a planned approach to task execution.
  • An understanding of tennis would be an advantage but is not essential.

This is fantastic opportunity for an experienced events professional to play a key role in maintaining ASB Classic’s status as a world class tournament for both spectators and players!
