Job Description

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (the Ministry) acts in the world to make New Zealanders safer and more prosperous.  We do this by building connections with and influencing other countries to advance New Zealand’s interests and project New Zealand values.  We provide advice to the Government on the implications for New Zealand of what is happening in the world.

We are looking to enhance and extend the capability of the Ministry across a wide spectrum of activity, including foreign policy, development, trade, and support services – all with the aim of delivering on the Government’s priorities.

We have a variety of new Lead Adviser opportunities across the Ministry.  The Lead Adviser roles are varied and each offer scope to influence and provide exciting new steps in a global, public sector career.

You will work closely with senior leaders and other Lead Advisers and demonstrate your intellectual leadership by working through complex, fast moving and challenging policy issues in ways that show ‘ownership’ of outcomes.  In addition you will be involved in coaching and mentoring our policy officers to enhance their skills.

You will have an opportunity to use your expertise in the following areas:

  • Your high level of leadership acumen
  • Your ability to think strategically
  • Your past experience in providing policy leadership in areas of complexity or ambiguity
