About the company:

As a long-standing provider of temporary and contract administration staff to South Australian Universities,  we are currently seeking expressions of interest from candidates with administration experience in the education sectors or keen to work within the higher education sector.  If you have experience within Universities or other higher education organisations we are keen to hear from you.

About the role:

Temporary vacancies range from reception, administration through to academic and student support roles, as well as personal assistant, executive support and project roles. Temporary assignments typically range from a few weeks up to several months and will vary in length depending on our client requirements. In some cases these positions may offer the opportunity of permanency within the University.


Proficiency in the Microsoft Office suite is essential as you will be comfortable in duties such as course administration, diary management, student liaison, database maintenance, word processing, compiling reports, taking minutes at meetings and editing documents, updating excel spreadsheets, project work, calendar and email management, travel bookings and ad-hoc administration.

Skills & experience:

Ideally, you will have 3-5 years experience in administration roles, proficiency in the Microsoft suite, typing of 60 wpm and knowledge of current office technology (i.e. Sharepoint.)  Excellent presentation and communication skills, a positive "can do" attitude and the ability to assimilate quickly into new teams will see you succeed in your temporary placements.

Culture & benefits:

As an ambassador for Entrée Recruitment, we expect that you will be well presented, reliable, capable and be able to 'add value' for our client.  In return, we will communicate with you clearly and regularly and do our best to ensure repeat work for you within this exciting and diverse environment of academia and education.
