An opportunity to inspire your team and make a difference to children's lives. MIT is at the forefront when it comes to changing people's lives, particularly in vocational education, based on our strong vision to assist students into great jobs.

At MIT, we offer our students access to our early childhood education centre. This centre cares for the children of our students, lecturers and support staff while at work at MIT, as well as preschool children from surrounding South Auckland communities.

MIT is currently looking for an inspirational individual to lead our child education centre.

A key relationship will be supporting the team leader who is responsible for the educational requirements of the centre’s teachers. Partnering with the team leader you will provide guidance when required and role-model a hands-on approach and can-do attitude that welcomes ideas and challenges thinking.

You are currently a people leader with sound emotional intelligence who can build a team culture that incorporates MIT values; we are real, manaakitanga; we are connected and we are excellent. Ideally your leadership experience is gained from the education sector and you bring knowledge of early childhood practice.

  • Ideally 5–7 years' leadership experience
  • Strong business acumen with evidence of growth strategy and financial management
  • Qualification in early childhood education
  • Relevant postgraduate qualification is also preferred with clean criminal record and NZ residency.
