Whitireia and WelTec polytechnics have recently refocused their joint ICT department with an aim to concentrate delivery of ICT services using Cloud technologies as the primary platform. We have an opening for a new role of Applications Operations Team Leader.

This is a new role born out of the desire to put increased focus on our application portfolio and our alignment to business priorities. As a new team you will have the opportunity to build a positive team culture, spirit and focused objectives.

Working out of our Porirua and Petone Campuses you will be responsible for leading a small team of Specialists, Administrators and our managed database platform. As this is a Team Lead position, you will need to rely on your technical skills in managing the line of business applications, managing staff performance and delivering against organisational expectations. 

We operate configured and integrated commercial off the shelf software solutions rather than develop in house and we are looking for a candidate that has experience building relationships with third party support companies. Having business engagement and process skills you will be at ease forming a strong understanding of the underlying business capabilities you support and creating great working relationships.

You should be skilled in the configuration and use of SQL services, reporting services, power BI and various applications that support business functions (Finance, HR, Student Management, Timetabling, etc.) but also have a desire to develop as a Team Lead and future Manager.
