How did I become a Facilities Manager?
I’ve worked at Auckland Stadiums for 7 years as part of the Facilities team. I know Auckland Stadiums’ three venues; Mt Smart, North Harbour and Western Springs’ Stadiums like the back of my hand. I even had a hand in the nicknaming of different spots around the venues. If you’re lucky enough to get to work here, I’ll let you know where ‘The Tan’ is located at Western Springs and where the ‘White House’ used to be located at Mt Smart Stadium.
One part of my job that I especially enjoy is working at our large events. At every large event, there is at least one Facilities team member onsite to ensure that the venue runs as smooth as possible. Working at live events to ensure events run seamlessly for 30,000+ crowds definitely gets the adrenaline pumping.

A career highlight
One of the highlights of my career working at Auckland Stadiums is planning for and leading three sold out Ed Sheeran shows back-to-back at Mt Smart Stadium. By the end of it I was just running on adrenaline!
