Official information request regarding international posts
I refer to your request for information under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act)
dated 1 February 2022:
“I would like to request the salary band and job title for all international posts. I
understand by google search that you have an international market manager
based in India, do you have anyone else who is based offshore and what country
they are located at.
If possible I would also like to request your org chart/reporting line to see how
these international post been managed.”
The University has five offshore representatives:
Country Manager - India
Director International recruitment Greater China
Director United States Engagement
Director China Engagement
Director Vietnam Engagement
The China, US and Vietnam Engagement Directors report to the University’s Director of
Strategic Partnerships and Engagement. The Recruitment Director, Greater China Region
and Country Manager based in India report to the Associate Director, Wellington
University International. An organisation chart for these positions is attached for your
The offshore representatives undertake a combination of international engagement and
student recruitment work across a number of regions. The roles are all contract based and
therefore do not have salary bands associated with them. Information regarding
individual contract rates is withheld in accordance with s9(2)(a) of the Act in order to
protect the privacy of natural persons.
Please note, the figures above do not include staff who may be working remotely overseas
due to COVID or who might be temporarily working overseas (e.g. collaborating with
another University and basing themselves there for a period) but who normally would be
based in New Zealand.
You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of the
decisions made regarding this request. Information about how to make a complaint is
available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz
