Unitec is New Zealand's largest institute of technology, with more than 20,000 students studying over 150 work-oriented programmes at campuses in Mt. Albert and Waitakere. The world of education is rapidly changing and so is Unitec.
Students are at the heart of every tertiary institution and Unitec's goal is a great job for every graduate. To achieve this we are creating a world-class, future-focused learning and teaching environment and need your help to make this a reality.
As the Student Support Advisor you'll be an integral part of the team as you provide support and advice to help students succeed. Working flexibly with student service teams, you'll play a key role in responding to student needs and providing pastoral care as you assist them in resolving issues, and help them to take up opportunities to support their success here at Unitec. Your highly developed interpersonal skills and demonstrated ability to relate to people from diverse cultures and backgrounds, young people and international students will enable you to truly succeed in this role. This is a part time position of 18.75 hours per week, while there is flexibility around the hours worked you will be required to work at both the Mt Albert and Waitakere campus.
We're looking for someone with a desire to actively engage with students and a passion for providing high-level customer service, with a focus on excellence. You'll be someone who is not happy with the status quo and continually focused on making improvements to work methods, outcomes and team performance. If you consider yourself to be a highly effective communicator, able to adapt your approach to each individual then we want to hear from you!

You will receive a competitive salary and benefits, discounted gym and on-site child care facility, free parking, and the chance to give back to tomorrow's generation.
