Vacancy: Reception Role

The Learning Connexion is a tertiary school of Art and Creativity based in Wellington.  We are seeking a warm, friendly and multi-skilled reception/admin superstar to work full-time (36.25 hours pw) from our Hutt Valley campus.

The Reception position is an essential role at The Learning Connexion, and most crucially requires top level customer service skills as our first point of contact for the school. It is a busy and varied role and the ability to be organised, adaptable, multi-tasking and solution focussed is vital. The role also requires outstanding communication skills, given its connection with all areas of the school including students, tutors, staff, and external service providers.

In addition, the position also consists of general administration tasks which support the functioning of the core organisational areas of the school. Accordingly, you must have good working knowledge of Google Drive, database entry, be computer savvy and have sound typing skills.

Areas of involvement include (but are not limited to):

  • Answering incoming calls to TLC’s main line and referring them to the appropriate people

  • Greeting people at Reception and helping them connect with the people they require

  • Class administration – creation and distribution of rolls and other related forms

  • Resource bookings, e.g. vans, bus, rooms, studios, equipment, staff appointments

  • Sorting mail and couriered packages

  • Overseeing and forwarding a daily staffing calendar

  • Support to Health & Safety team in urgent situations

  • General resourcing of flyers, documents and stationery available from Reception

This is a great opportunity to work in a vibrant and creative environment that changes students’ lives. An interest is art and creativity is an advantage, but not essential. An open mind and sense of humour is!


We are seeking someone who is available for an immediate start. Salary range is $34,000-$38,000, depending on skill level.

Closing date is 8 September 2017.
