Wētā Workshop houses a complete one-stop physical effects workshop under one roof, located in Miramar - Wellington
It's all made possible through intense collaboration by multi-skilled artists and craftsmen between and across our departments. The creativity, passion and tenacity of the Wētā Workshop crew is second to none.
We use our talent pool to store profiles of people that would like to be considered for work with Wētā or have previously worked for us and would like to be considered for more opportunities.
We're looking for people with skills in: casting (urethanes) & molding (silicone), prosthetics, plaster, painting, fibreglassing, textiles, costuming, sculpting, props and model making.
We also look for practical engineering, metal fabrication, woodworking, carving and jewellery making skills as well as animatronics and robotics technicians.
Our 3D design team work with software programmes like Rhino, Illustrator, ZBrush to create designs for manufacture.
These are hands-on, ‘roll up your sleeves’ type jobs for people who can muck in and deliver high quality work to tight deadlines.
We’re also keen to meet Jacks and Jills of all trades: people who can pick up hand tools or power tools, handle themselves around chemicals, take direction well and are comfortable getting stuck into whatever labour-intensive job we throw at them.
Wētā Workshop is a health and safety-focused workplace, so we’re looking for people who have a high level of health and safety awareness and the desire to contribute to a safe and friendly environment.
