If you’re an experienced YES teacher with passion to provide support for Auckland schools participating in Young Enterprise programmes, we want to hear from you!

As a YES Auckland roaming teacher, you will provide in-school support to enterprise, business, and/or financial literacy standards teachers, thereby creating greater learning outcomes and impact for their students.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Train and develop teachers around enterprise and financial literacy programmes
  • Assist teachers and students in preparing for YES challenges
  • Recruit schools to participate in enterprise, business and/or financial literacy at a junior and senior level
  • Develop new resources, assessments, and programmes.

This is cool because you can:

  • Use all your skills from teaching in a different way
  • Learn from and network with others – you get to see what 30 other teachers are doing
  • Have a temporary change of scene from being a classroom teacher.

 A successful candidate must have:

  • A minimum of five years teaching experience, with some of that time in New Zealand
  • Experience in teaching YES with NCEA business studies achievement standards, and a record of students completing the programme.

Tell us why you are the right person to take Young Enterprise to the next level in Auckland!


  • Term: this is a one-year fixed-term contract from January–December 2021, though there may be an option to renew depending on funding
  • Salary: your salary will be your current salary as per the teachers’ collective agreement. Any salary increases as part of the collective agreement during the secondment period will be honoured
  • Annual Leave: this entitlement will be different from the collective agreement and will align with the rest of the team at Young Enterprise. Individuals will have 4-weeks annual leave during the secondment.  During school holidays, you will be doing planning for Auckland and resource development at a national level.
