Careers at MIT
Tangata (people) and community are at the heart of everything we do at MIT | Te Pūkenga. We are now part of a national organisation helping Aotearoa, New Zealand, move to a vocational education system that puts ākonga (learners) and their whānau in the centre of all we do. We are on a journey to bring together on-the-job, on campus and online vocational education and training through a unified, sustainable network of regionally accessible provision.
When you join our MIT | Te Pūkenga whānau, you become a member of an innovative and passionate tīma (team) where you are encouraged to be yourself and to learn and grow. We are passionate kaimahi (staff) who live and breathe both MIT | Te Pūkenga values, collectively serving our community and being part of our ākonga (learner’s) hopes, aspirations and success.
MIT became Aotearoa’s first purpose-built polytechnic in 1970. Learn more about our evolution, our values and our mission that guides us as we carry on into the future.
