Assistive technology Support - Wellington

If you are interested in technology and are seeking a rewarding role within a fun team, then this position could be for you!

The TalkLink Trust provides specialist services in Assistive Technology/Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) throughout New Zealand. TalkLink works with both adults and children who experience difficulty with spoken and/or written communication.

We have a part time (20 hours) vacancy for an assistive technology support guru in our Wellington office. The role mainly involves the setup and troubleshooting of technical equipment used by people with disabilities and communication impairments. The equipment includes both Apple and Windows based systems and associated software. You will also support our clinical staff working with this equipment. 

The role requires someone who has a good foundation of technical skills, is a fast learner, and is organised. A level 4 qualification in a related area is desirable and you must be able to demonstrate practical skills and knowledge. You will have a desire to support the unique needs of our clients, as well as the ability to work without close supervision. You will also need excellent communication skills as regular interaction with users, suppliers and other TalkLink staff is involved. Competencies with Microsoft Office are essential.

The work is varied, interesting, and multifaceted, and you will be part of a small, friendly team. Mostly you will be based in our Wellington office, but from time to time you will get out and about, and for that a clean driver’s license is required.

Applicants must be eligible for permanent work in New Zealand and be a current resident.
