Head Of Lighting – Oceania Productions/NW Group – Auckland


Established in 1973 Oceania Productions is NZs largest and leading provider of Sound Lighting and Video equipment to the NZ event industry. We operate across all sectors of the live event industry. Concerts, Theatre, Festivals, Corporate, Live Television, Worship, Sports, and Virtual Events.

We work regularly in NZ’s premium stadiums, arenas, theatres, and ballrooms and we count most of NZ’s leading event promoters and producers amongst our clients.


As the event sector rebounds strongly post the pandemic, Oceania Productions is seeing unprecedented demand for its services. A very unique opportunity has arisen for the right person to join our team as Head of Lighting and lead Oceania’s Lighting Department into what is a new and exciting future.


Creativity will be your passion and drive, and you will bring in-depth knowledge and experience of lighting design and systems.

You will bring a strategic focus to our business and insight into the new technology that will continue to drive our lighting department forward

Not many people outside our industry know who we are, but you will. Chances are we’ve worked together before in some capacity, here, or internationally.

You will have a deep understanding of the safety requirements for erecting lighting rigs in NZ’s venues

You will understand the NZ event market and have existing relationships in place with leading producers, promoters, and suppliers.

You will have a network that includes NZ lighting technicians and operators who you will be able to bring in and help you execute our clients’ vision for their event.

You will be able to establish training systems to develop our outstanding and talented team of lighting operators who are eager to develop their own skillsets

You will understand that we are a full service company, and you will be working collaboratively with our, sales, operations,  audio and vision departments.

To survive and come out of the pandemic in such good shape we have looked inward and recalibrated who we are. We are a tight team of passionate people and we are seeking a likeminded person that will lead by great example.

You may (or may not) currently have your own inventory supplementing your current work or business. That does not need to be a barrier to furthering this discussion and we are keen to hear from you.


In addition to the opportunity to work in NZ’s leading event technology business, and work with an amazing team of likeminded event technology professionals, a highly competitive remuneration package is on offer. We understand that flexibility in employment and family is an important part of any decision to join a new employer. NW Group is a proud equal opportunities employer and is keen to continue to address the gender imbalance in our industry and workforce.

All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.

This is a full time position.

Closing date is 30th September 2022.
