An exciting opportunity is now available to become the new director of international students at our school. Up to 8 hours teaching per week (to be negotiated with the successful applicant). This would suit a registered teacher within the NZ education system.

Over 1,400 students attend our school and we have enjoyed a successful international student programme for 25 years. Anywhere between 40 to 70 long-term international students attend our school at any one time.

The position will involve a handover period during term 1 with the current international director, and the successful applicant will have superb interpersonal skills and a positive 'can-do' attitude. Empathy, understanding of young people and intercultural competence are also required. Excellent English skills – both written and verbal – are essential and experience in marketing and customer relations would be a strong advantage. Knowledge of the New Zealand education system, the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 and the New Zealand Curriculum are all essential requirements.

As director, you will coordinate the international department, develop marketing strategies and travel overseas several times a year representing our school in our target markets.

This is a full-time position starting as soon as practicable in term 1, 2020.
