Who you are

As an experienced education administrator you know how to organise yourself and other people. You’ll be responsible for getting the right English language programmes up and running to meet the needs of local learners. To do this you’ll be well networked and in regular communication with the key stakeholders in the region.

Includes looking for the opportunity to grow the delivery in the region to meet new learner demand.
  • Collaborating with agencies involved with the planned new intake of former refugees into Timaru to best service their needs and to ensure ESOL provision is tailored to meet their specific requirements. May require flexibility to work occasional evenings/weekends.
  • Supporting and developing our teachers; providing teaching supervision and quality management, conducting teacher observations and delivering some internal systems training.
  • Primary point of contact for learners and volunteers – assessing their needs, placing in suitable programmes and referring to other agencies.
  • Fixed-term 12 months, 25 hours per week, days negotiable, rate: $29.41 per hour.

Is this you?

  • Tertiary qualification in a relevant discipline such as TESOL, TEFL, teaching, adult education, and experience in ESOL teaching is essential
  • Proven administration/coordination experience, with strong time management and organisational skills.
  • Experience supporting/delivering online teaching and/or a good understanding of technology for teaching is desirable.
  • Excellent IT skills across Microsoft Office Suite (Office 365, Word, Excel, Outlook) and the ability to pick up new systems quickly
  • A positive attitude and a clear and friendly communication style (spoken and written) with a strong customer service ethos.
  • A current clean full driver’s licence and able to use own vehicle for regular work-related meetings.
