Part-Time Receptionist & Enquiries Coordinator

Professional and Administrative Lincoln, Canterbury


As the longest-running agriculturally-based university in the Southern Hemisphere, Lincoln University’s story begins with farming, but it certainly doesn’t end there. As New Zealand’s economy diversified, so have we. Lincoln University is here to enhance and enrich lives. To grow the knowledge of our students so they can shape a world that benefits from a greater understanding of the relationship between our land, the food produced from it and the ecosystems within it. With three academic faculties, one teaching division, several research centres, and a range of corporate service units, Lincoln University draws its students from throughout New Zealand and from over 60 countries. Lincoln University has a student roll of around 3,000 and approximately 600 staff. 

We have a permanent, part-time opportunity available for a frontline customer service star, handling enquiries from University visitors and students. The enquiries may be face to face, over the phone or via our website. For many, you will be the first point of contact for the University so it’s essential that you have a warm, welcoming manner and are proactive by nature, ready to help. You will ideally have previous experience in a reception or customer-facing role, have good problem solving skills and be able to quickly learn how to handle a wide variety of queries. It’s essential that you are computer savvy, and have an intermediate skill level with the Microsoft Office suite. Previous experience using a CRM system would be an advantage. 

This is a 0.6 position, 22.5 hours per week. 

Please apply online with your CV and cover letter.
