Educator Vacancy - Eastern Bay of Plenty - Full Time or Part Time

We have an exciting opportunity for a talented teacher to join our team as an Educator in the Eastern Bay of Plenty area, visiting schools from Matata to Opotiki and inland to Murapara.

This is an opportunity to make a genuine difference to children’s health and wellbeing and bring your creativity to an innovative teaching environment. Through our professional development programme you’ll cultivate new skills, and you'll be able to maintain your teacher registration as we are accredited by the NZ Teachers Council.

You’ll be joining New Zealand’s leading health education provider held in high regard by schools. The Ministry of Education’s National Monitoring Study of Student Assessment (NMSSA) found 86% of New Zealand’s primary and Intermediate schools choose to use Life Education as their health specialists.

As our local face, your ability to build relationships with schools and understand them as the customer will be key to successfully meeting their needs and to ultimately assist with their children’s learning. You will also have strong organisational skills, enabling you to plan in advance, maximise your teaching time and help us to achieve our goal of reaching every child, every year.

So if you're a motivated and talented teacher looking to take the next step beyond a classroom and be part of our journey, to empower children to make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing, then we’re very keen to hear from you.

To get the very best person/ people, we’re taking a flexible approach to whether it is a full time or part time position.

Applications close Tuesday 30 June, but we'll be assessing applications as they come in so are keen to hear from you sooner rather than later.
