Joint Leadership Vacancies

Associate Director (Auckland)

Full Time, Permanent Position

Auckland Based

Whitireia Community Polytechnic and Wellington Institute of Technology are high performing and well respected institutes of technology that provide quality applied learning for over 15,000 students across New Zealand every year.

Our attractive Auckland campus, based in the heart of the city, provides training for over 1,000 students in subjects as diverse as IT, business, youth development, early childhood education, radio and cookery - from certificate to Masters level.  The campus has a particular focus on international students.

We are seeking an experienced manager to provide support and leadership of all teaching and learning provision at our Auckland campus.

This role provides an important link between the Auckland campus and the wider Whitireia and WelTec leadership, to ensure that the unique aspects of the campus are considered in all institutional decision making.

A key aspect of the role is that it relies on the incumbent’s ability to influence through the development of strong internal relationships based on their credibility and communication skills, rather than through positional power.

The successful candidate is likely to have significant experience in educational management with a good understanding of academic processes and, preferably, experience of working with international students.
