International Student Support Vacancy

Paraparaumu College is a proudly co-educational school of around 1,400 students situated on the beautiful Kāpiti Coast.  We enjoy a spacious campus with a growing roll, an innovative approach to learning, and a commitment to achieving the highest equitable outcomes for our students.

We have a great opportunity for someone to join our support staff team working in the International Department.  

The International Student Support role will work closely with the International Director to deliver an exciting programme and positive experiences for our international students.  

This role is responsible for the recruitment and support of homestay hosts and the successful placement, monitoring and support of students in their homestay, as well as carrying out the administration and compliance tasks for the programme.

Experience having worked with young people is essential and within education would be an advantage.   Cultural awareness and understanding the opportunities and challenges cultural differences can raise is important.  You will have excellent people and communication skills, including the ability to build and grow relationships with a wide range of people.   An eye for detail, administration and computer skills, being well organised and able to manage your time within a busy, fun environment will be welcomed.  

The position requires a valid full driver’s licence, and the ability to drive a manual vehicle would be preferable.

We offer a friendly, supportive team environment and look forward to hearing from you if this role sounds like you.
