The University of Otago is New Zealand's first University and ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world. It has a strong teaching and research tradition and well-established national and international ties which it hopes to build on through Pae Tata, its strategy to 2030.

About our team/Mō te tīma

The Marketing Services Department is made up of five teams:
•    Our in-house Creative Services team (including the Producer Brand Content role) leads how our brand is presented;

•    Divisional Marketing Advisors champion the needs of our academics’ subject areas; 
•    The Web Experience team owns the University website and other digital applications;
•    An Events team delivers a wide range of events for students, academics, and alumni.

While each area has its own responsibility to provide expert advice and initiatives to attract students and raise the profile of the University, there will be a large amount of collaboration at a project level.
