New Zealand IT Manager

Career or Launch ShortTerm Missionary trip in: New Zealand

Dates: 01/01/2023 - 01/01/2024

Cost: $0.00

Ministry Description


Your role will be to work alongside our team by providing IT support across a range of infrastructure (both Microsoft and Apple based products), consistently identifying new workflows and processes, providing basic website development, managing asset tracking and maintenance schedules. To be successful in this role, you should have experience with Microsoft Azure management, Microsoft Volume Licensing and be familiar with Virtualmin/Webmin and CLI. Ultimately, you will ensure that all IT systems are working at their most efficient and cost effective.


Are you looking for a job that allows you to combine your expertise with your passion for sharing the gospel? Here at Word of Life NZ our mission is to partner with local churches to evangelise and disciple youth. We are looking for an experienced and passionate IT Coordinator to ensure our systems are smooth running and efficient.


Currently, Word of Life NZ has 2 offices - one in the North Island, and one in the South Island. The head office is based at the North Island location of Hamilton. It is most likely that you would start your time at our head office, but both locations work closely together and there is travel between both sites.


All of our staff have accommodation in the local community. You will be assisted to find appropriate boarding, or rental accommodation in the vicinity of your posting.


Transport in New Zealand is predominantly by road, so you would need to purchase a car for personal use. Budget approximately $5000 for this expense. Word of Life will cover fuel costs for work related transport.



To gain entry into NZ you will require a Religious Workers Visa. This allows you to stay for an initial period of 2 years, with an extension available after that time. For more information see: https://www.immigration.govt.nz

What to Bring

The climate in New Zealand is sub-tropical. This means that some parts of the country will experience snow in winter, but this is rarely the case where our major cities are located. In the summer expect warm, sunny days and regular trips to the beach. You will want to pack for the range of temperatures as the seasons change.

Dress Code

We allow staff members the freedom to dress according to the style of their choice. However, the following should be considered: Wear tidy casual dress to the office and events. Clothing should be clean and neat, free of holes, tears or other signs of wear. Hair/beards/moustaches should be well-groomed. Always wear footwear around the office and at events.
