General staff (also known as allied staff, or professional staff) in tertiary education institutions are tertiary education professionals with vast expertise and experience in a wide range of specialised roles.
Quality teaching, learning and research in New Zealand tertiary education institutions (TEIs) would not be possible without general staff, and the work we do in partnership with our academic colleagues. We are an essential part of the union and the tertiary education institutional community.
