Multiple positions; Policy and Senior Analysts

  • Positions are based around NZ but preference will be given to those who reside in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland.
  • Huge emphasis on building relationships across a number of key stakeholder groups.
  • Te Reo me ona tikanga Māori.

Experience in the post settlement space and looking to apply your skills within an organisation where your legacy will be for all New Zealanders to share?

We are looking to attract both multiple policy analysts and senior analysts based across NZ who are looking to apply their policy skills within an innovative, entrepreneurial and rapidly changing government organisation.

Ideally, you will have experience in policy development, Treaty settlements or implementation of post settlement outcomes.  Of fundamental importance, your Mātauranga Māori and its application to the environment will contribute to your overall success in this role. With your policy experience, you’ll bring the skills you have gained advancing Māori perspectives from a policy standpoint, and your experience applying principles of the treaty in operational settings.

These positions will support and enable change, within the organisation, externally, and at a grass roots level.  All you do will be built on the foundations of tikanga and the way that you engage with others will be Mana uplifting. The ability to connect to others, build and nurture relationships and take response from those relationships and apply it in a meaningful way are cornerstones to the positions.

Knowledge, competencies and skills desirable for application are to include;

  • Ability to operate effectively in a Māori cultural setting and proven understanding of and commitment to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.
  • Experience in stakeholder engagement – the genuine ability to build strong relationships with iwi, whānau and other key stakeholder groups.
  • The demonstrated ability as a people influencer; the capability to build trust and to lead others on a journey.
  • Sound Te Reo Māori knowledge and modelling of tikanga Māori.
  • Knowledge and understanding of key legislation and policy processes.
  • Working knowledge of government processes, familiarity with relevant legislation, regulations, and policy development.
  • Policy writing skills with the ability to draft and finalise documents.
  • Ability to problem solve and identify workable solutions through the application of new ideas and transparent communication.
  • Experience in the operations of national government protocols and functions; and management of issues.
  • Demonstrated ability to coordinate and deliver strategies and initiatives.

The ability to identify cultural perspectives, challenge views – lead others to value and respect alternative cultural perspectives will require mana, alongside your sound people influencing abilities. Proven skills in working across often opposing cultural world, views, and the ability to bring those worlds closer together is prerequisite.  Your ability to operate effectively with a high level of diplomacy, remain neutral and provide unbiased, well founded advice is a foundation to your capability within this position.

Depending on the level of your relevant skill and experience, you may be involved at either the coal face with a partnership led approach where you will be building, maintaining and enhancing relationships particularly focused on iwi ability to support achievement and challenges at a local and regional level or behind the scenes with the problem solving/policy work.

Knowledge of Te Tiriti o Waitangi from both an historical and contemporary context will support your daily work, and of huge importance is the knowledge gained from your own local community , how is the organisation doing, how can they do better and how are they perceived by iwi-Māori?  Remuneration is positioned to attract highly culturally qualified application of junior and senior policy skill sets.
