Reporting to an Area Manager, this role works 2:30pm – 10:30pm Tuesday to Saturday, providing additional customer service, event coordinator and after hours support and care to our residents. We are seeking capable professionals who can support the development of a community that is safe, comfortable, supportive, conducive to academic success, and responsive to the needs of students in residence. 

Our preferred candidate will:

  • Role model appropriate sociability for a residential community as well as high levels of professionalism;
  • Be available for after-hours/weekend on-call work (on average 1 week in every 3); and
  • Be warm and open in your personal style but with a level of personal integrity that allows you to maintain consistent and respectful standards of behaviour within a community tolerant of diverse perspectives and needs.

As a pragmatic professional you will be able to deliver a high quality residential service. As part of the face of the Residence you will be friendly, customer focused, enthusiastic, with empathy for tertiary students.
