At Unitec, we're passionate about the power of education to positively change the lives of our students, their whānau and the wider hapori. We make sure our learners are well equipped for the future needs of employers, by providing them with a mix of hands-on and classroom based learning.

The Kaihautū role is diverse, but one of its core focus areas is to embed mātauranga Māori across Unitec in a way that supports the success of tauira Māori and all students.

It is essential that you hold a post-graduate qualification or be working towards completing one.
