Casual / Hourly Paid Positions

The School of Interprofessional Health Studies is calling for expressions of interest for Teaching Assistants in 2019 to undertake marking for the papers listed below. The work will be on a casual basis.

Preference will be given to Postgraduate students or graduates and those with relevant marking experience.

Work is available during semester time only, and fluctuates according to course requirements with most marking taking place over the period April - June.  On average, the total hours in each paper will be approximately 120 over the semester, with some weeks much busier than others.  Payment is via an hourly rate pay scale.

A high level of academic literacy is required as all assignments assess these skills. This includes familiarity with referencing (APA format) and formal academic writing.

All marking is carried out online so you will need to be computer literate and have reliable computer access.  This is not a teaching position - there is no classroom contact with students.

Successful applicants will attend compulsory training prior to starting work, and further ongoing training will take place during the semester. All training sessions are held at AUT's North campus at Akoranga Dr, Northcote.  All successful candidates will be required to attend a one-day training workshop in March.
