Work For Us

Office Administrator - Wellington

Part Time  - 25 hours per week.

We have a star on our team who’s just left us after 13 years so now it’s your chance to join a great organisation passionate about their work.

As is often said, the front desk is the face of the organisation and, therefore, the most valuable role. If you are excited at the idea of being involved in an iconic brand that’s all about community and people and not about selling widgets, then you might be the one!

Key responsibilities in this broad role include: 

  • Accounts support using Xero– invoicing and reconciliation and assistance with Trust’s annual accounts preparation.
  • Stock and resource management
  • Maintaining information systems and supply of information to our volunteers
  • Coordination and planning support with events such as conferences

We're looking for someone who is adaptable, organised and enjoys working with a range of people. You’ll be driven by a strong commitment to ‘customer service’ and you’ll gain satisfaction from knowing you have just solved someone’s problem whether large or small.

You need to be able to self-direct, work independently but collaboratively. To do so you’ll be able to draw from past experience in a similar role that included financial processes and demonstrate familiarity with Xero. You’ll also bring your ideas and experience to help us improve how we manage our administration functions. In return we’ll offer a flexible and supportive work environment to get the right appointment.

If you’d love to be the one to work with us, please send your application to John O’Connell, Chief Executive, Life Education Trust (NZ) – by 5pm Monday 28 January 2019.


If you want to take charge and work for an organisation highly respected by teachers and loved by children then apply today!

If you have a passion for working with children, an interest in health and education and our children’s wellbeing then this ad might be the beginning of a great relationship. We’re offering you the chance to work with the community and build relationships with teachers in the region.

We’ll help you develop your teaching skills and working with us enables you to retain teacher registration.

  • Be recognised as a specialist teacher and enjoy being part of a focused PD programme
  • Work autonomously and take charge
  • Motivate others to reach their potential.

We’re working with the best advisers to ensure we’re at the forefront of education in NZ, and so we’re looking for a motivated, innovative and talented teacher to be part of this journey.
As our local face, your ability to build relationships with local schools and understand them as the customer will be key to successfully meeting their needs and ultimately assist with their children’s learning.

You will also have strong organisational skills, enabling you to plan each term in advance, maximise your teaching time and achieve our goal of reaching every child, every year.
The successful applicant will be a qualified teacher, with full registration and a current practicing certificate and be able to demonstrate sound knowledge of the NZ Curriculum. It is advantageous if you have work experience outside the classroom to help demonstrate relationship management skills. But above all, we’re looking for a passionate teacher who wants to make a difference in children's lives.

After being around for 25 years, teaching 250,000 children a year, chances are you know us; don’t let the chance to work for us slip by!
