Job Description

Faculty of Science

The University of Auckland is a truly great place to work. Offering five weeks’ annual leave, a generous company superannuation scheme, over 300 courses and workshops designed to support your professional development, and standout facilities for staff members who are also parents, it’s easy to see why we’ve been voted one of New Zealand’s most attractive employers.*

Find out more about some of the great reasons to work for us at Career development and benefits.

We are looking for someone to join our Faculty’s Information Services team, providing IT support and assistance for an end-user community that includes researchers, lecturers, staff and students.

The opportunity

The Faculty IS team works in partnership with a university-wide community of skilled IT professionals, and together we are designing and delivering a wide range of advice and innovative solutions to our customers.

We’re looking for a customer-oriented person who will work thoughtfully with our IT partners and end-users to resolve issues, and who can provide a positive customer experience even when dealing with competing demands and sensitive situations.

For these roles, we would welcome candidates with some or all of the following qualities:

  • A talent for understanding end-user requirements, showing sensitivity to clients’ needs while providing technical advice and designing solutions for our faculty.
  • An ability to take the initiative and to collaborate well in a team environment, while also being willing to work cooperatively with the university’s wider IT community and its many partners.
  • A commitment to understanding new technology in a tertiary education environment, and confidence with setting up and using modern desktop software and peripherals.
  • Experience with MacOS/iOS, Apple computers and devices is a distinct advantage; so too is LINUX experience.

This position’s focus on customer service and stakeholder experience means you’ll need to have excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Some experience with networking, virtual servers, enterprise software tools, database design, coding, web design or video-conferencing would be advantageous, but these are not essential.

Applications close on Sunday 29th April 2018.
