Fulbright NZ Scholarships Programme Manager

Fulbright New Zealand offers a range of exchange awards for New Zealanders and Americans wanting to study, research, teach or present their work in each other’s country. The Fulbright programme of international educational exchange was an initiative of American Senator J. William Fulbright from Arkansas, who in the aftermath of World War II believed that mutual understanding between different countries and cultures was crucial to ensure a peaceful future for the world.

Fulbright New Zealand is currently seeking an exceptional individual for the role of Scholarships Programme Manager to oversee the management of several core Fulbright NZ and US scholarships.

You will be working within a small team alongside a second Scholarships Programme Manager organising, administering and overseeing the smooth running of several core Fulbright scholarships.

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • proven scholarship programme or project management experience
  • outstanding skills in relationship management
  • excellent administration and record management skills
  • experience in educational marketing and student recruitment
  • ability to establish and maintain excellent relationships with key Fulbright NZ partners, government agencies, and other stakeholders
  • an understanding of the education sector in NZ and the US
  • a relevant tertiary qualification

The role of Scholarship Programme Manager is essential to recruiting and fostering the best and brightest thought leaders to become Fulbright New Zealand grantees.

The successful candidate will need high levels of initiative, foresight, and exceptional time management skills. You will enjoy working within a small and hardworking team but will also be comfortable working independently at times. You will be comfortable talking in front of groups as part of Fulbright’s Outreach and Midyear Programmes, and you will have a good understanding of tertiary education systems and timeframes in New Zealand and the US.
