Head of School
What skills and experiences will tomorrow’s students need to maximise their employability? How can tertiary education empower students to have the best possible outcomes?
What can you do to maximise our academic and financial performance? What can you contribute to a sector where rapid change is a given?
Unitec is on a journey to become a leader in contemporary and applied learning. Key to getting to where we want to go is having the right people. We approach learning differently to enable better futures for our students and communities, and our combination of theory and hands-on experience will give students the skills to meet the changing needs of employers.
To support our focus on academic quality and student success, we have considerably redeveloped our Mt. Albert Campus and have been refurbishing our Waitakere Campus to support flexible, collaborative, technology-enabled learning and teaching spaces.
Our central hub offers open environments merging with collaborative areas, semi-enclosed library spaces and a range of social and food spaces.
As a Head of School, you will lead the strategy for the School and effectively manage your people and resources. You will work collaboratively across and beyond the organisation to deliver the vision and strategic goals of Unitec and the ITP sector.
Based at our Mt. Albert campus, the Head of School will create a culture of excellence and continuous improvement in learning, teaching and research, ensuring Unitec is able to be responsive to demands from our students, industries, communities and external stakeholders.
You will be working alongside other Heads of School and senior leaders across the organisation to significantly influence not only an institution and sector of huge promise but also the lives of tomorrow’s graduates.
The working titles of the Schools are:
- Applied Business
- Building Construction
- Community and Police
- Computing and Information Technology
- Creative Industries
- Engineering and Applied Technology
- Environment and Animal Sciences
- Health Care and Social Development – based at our Waitakere campus
- Trades and Services
To be successful in this position you will have significant senior academic leadership and management experience and proven capacity to work effectively and collaboratively as part of a senior team. Your values, experience, insight and passion for academic quality and adherence to excellence will make a positive difference to Unitec.
You need to hold academic qualifications appropriate to the School and have the kind of networks which will allow you to maintain a current and far-reaching view of that industry.
We are looking for you to demonstrate evidence of active engagement in building diverse, inclusive and equitable workplaces/environments, and an understanding of Te Reo Māori, Tikanga Māori and the values and practices of Kaupapa Māori.
If you have the networks, the knowledge, the passion and desire to shape tomorrow’s workforce, we would very much like to hear from you.
