An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated professional with well-developed organisational skills to become a member of our senior leadership team and make a significant difference to the educational outcomes of our students. As part of the senior leadership team you will play a crucial part in setting and maintaining a positive learning culture in our school. Integral to this role is expert pastoral care experience and the ability to support the learning and engagement in Y9–10.

Our college is a Y9–13 school in Auckland serving a largely Pacific Island and Māori population. Our students’ families are in many cases first or second-generation New Zealanders who moved here for a better life and opportunities for their children, and this is reflected in the family aspirations.  As a school, we are committed to increasing the number of students who go on to degree-level study.

This is a challenging role, suitable for someone who is ambitious for the students in their care. The successful applicant will be committed to providing high-quality leadership, initiative and contribute to a strong team-based approach to lifting academic achievement for our students, our families and our community.
