About the role:

Digital Connect Guides assist people using technology to deliver mission. We make it possible for people working in Addiction Centres, Reintegration Services, Family Stores, Community Ministries, churches and all our mission activities to help those in need. While based in our Auckland administration building, they guide our people spread throughout New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga, and Samoa. There will be some need to travel and visit our centres. 

Key tasks:

End User Guidance

  • From password resets, to how do I questions, hardware and software troubleshooting you make sure mission happens
  • Increasingly our technology means we are guiding people to the resources, forms, and processes needed to make mission happen. Rather than solving technical problems you will be guiding people in making the most of technology (e.g. how to share your screen in a Teams meeting, where to store digital information so only appropriate people have access, where to find internal forms (and complete them), guide them through internal processes, etc).
  • A significant part of this role is providing remote guidance to people so you will be answering calls coming to us as well as written requests.
  • Team performance metrics are based on percentage of calls being answered within a predefined waiting time and age of requests. There is a system for this and it is expected all work would be clearly recorded in this and updated regularly (minimum weekly).

Microsoft 365 

  • Helping people with 365 apps – Outlook, Teams, Planner, OneDrive. You will be a super-user of 365.
  • Assisting with the implementation of OneDrive, SharePoint, Teams, and other key 365 apps. This includes assisting with continual training of users as they transition and may include project-based work on information migrations.

Technology Champion

  • Digital Connect guides are expected to be aware of all digital initiatives across The Salvation Army and champion the use of these with every interaction. This includes O365, One Drive, Teams, and all other officially supplied and supported solutions.
  • The computer code of conduct is central to how TSA protects people's privacy and secures information and the iSG Reps will be expected to uphold these and guide others in its value and practice.


  • Any other duties as required.
  • Occasional project involvement is a part of this role as we look to continually develop the knowledge and skills of all team members.

Person Specification:

  • Relevant tertiary qualification (diploma or degree) and or industry certifications.
  • Have a solid understanding of ITIL Foundations.
