Admin/Reception – Native Tech, Rotorua


Are you interested and passionate about working with rangatahi Māori? Do you have a passion for working with young people (aged 15 to 24), not in employment, education or training (NEET), or at risk of long-term unemployment?  Would you like to be part of a geeky, innovative team of Jedis and Changemakers? Do you like to work in a fun and inspiring environment?  

Native Tech (a programme powered by Digital Natives Academy) is looking for a Receptionist/Admin to support Digital Natives Academy and Native Tech.

Native Tech is an initiative developed by Digital Natives Academy, a non-profit, which was established in 2014 to encourage young people wanting to enter the digital tech industry the power to create, transform, shape and develop their own digital tools. 

Native Tech’s vision is to create the next generation of digital leaders. Our foundation is based on a Te Ao Māori worldview and we provide Kaupapa Māori and Matauranga Māori programme delivery. 

Our goal is to create industry relevant career pathways for young people who don’t have access to technology, training or support. We do this to inspire them to become makers and innovators of technology, rather than simply users and consumers of it.
