Who we are

We are the Division of Shared Services, a team of highly skilled professional staff responsible for delivering an outstanding student and staff experience through high quality, effective service delivery to all of the University’s internal and external customers.

Our specific focus is on the student experience felt by our students here at the University of Otago. We work to provide accurate and timely information, assistance and advice across a range of activities from admission to graduation.

The role

The role of Senior Administrator within Student Administration works to perform a range of routine and more complex administrative activities, usually connected with a specific area or portfolio.

The primary focus of this role is to provide support for scholarship administration and in particular scholarships payments. Tasks will largely be centred on preparing and processing payments, liaising with areas across the university, and may include other duties as described in the Senior Administrator Student Administration job description.

Your skills and experience

• Outstanding attention to detail and accuracy.
• Exposure to work in a busy administration environment.
• A passion for customer service and delivering exceptional service to students.
• An ongoing commitment to positive outcomes for our staff and students.
• Strong Microsoft Office and PC skills.
• An affinity for processing complex data.

Due to the nature of the Shared Services Division, the range of tasks and responsibilities is broad and may require performing duties at different workplaces or locations across campus.

We are committed to on-going training and development in order to upskill successful candidates in areas that they desire more exposure to.
