Help shape the future of education

At the Ministry of Education, we work together to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

Our organisation is made up of more than 3,000 talented and committed people around New Zealand, from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.

While we work in different groups and on different things, we all strive every day to make the biggest difference we can for every child, young person and adult student in our education system.

About our group and team

SE&S – Sector Enablement and Support

Our teams around the country work closely with the early childhood and schooling sectors, providers, and communities to provide support, expertise and resources to help children and young people reach their full potential.

We also directly provide learning support for around 40,000 children and young people.

The School Network team is involved with monitoring, planning and implementing change within the schooling network (including state and state integrated schools). We are both strategic and operational. The role will involve working with Rational Office staff and others to support planning or the implementation of network change.

About this role

This role is central to the effective operation of the team. You will undertake administrative work including updating and managing databases, helping manage budgets, processing contracts and invoices and providing administrative support including at governance board meetings.

To be successful in the role, you’ll be able to work collaboratively with others and on your own projects. You will be good with numbers, processes and written communication. You will also be flexible in your approach to work as this is a busy team. Sometimes there may be travel required. You will also be able to work alongside a range of different people, working collaboratively with key internal stakeholders, and developing strong work relationships.

You will also offer the following:

  • A willingness to give things a try, to help others when you can and to ask for help when you need it
  • Excellence in using the Microsoft product range
  • Knowledge about the schooling sector in Aotearoa New Zealand
  • A tertiary qualification in a related area of study
  • The ability to understand and apply the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and tangatawhenuatanga

You’ll be working in a high performing team in National Office. We have close working relationships with other groups within National Office and in our Regional Offices.

It’s a great developmental role and you will gain an understanding of the systems and work of the Ministry as well as the understanding of the schooling network and the processes to undertake network change.

Are you ready to make a difference?

We welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds, including Māori, Pacific and those with disabilities, who will enrich our understanding of the education system.

As a government agency, the Ministry is committed to keeping to the Treaty of Waitangi’s guiding principles in our work for and with Māori students, their whānau, hapū and iwi.
