·   Skills in reo Māori, and an understanding of Te Ao Māori.

·   Develop and deliver stakeholder engagement strategies.

This large organisation has extensive national programmes of work, one of which delivers housing and support services for people transitioning back into the community environment post custodial sentence.

The Senior Stakeholder Māori Engagement Advisor is a newly created role and will work across a large section of Government agencies, social services as well as Iwi and Te Ao Māori stakeholders.

A key deliverable will be the development and delivery of a range of stakeholder engagement strategies. Creating and maintaining stakeholder databases and engagement matrix’s, the Advisor will set about developing key messages, factsheets and varied online content.

Supported by your extensive Māori engagement experience, this position calls for a level of comfort providing advice to an Executive level of government. You will be advising others on complex and sensitive issues and providing regular reports on engagement activities and instruction on emerging issues as they relate to the programme of work.

Ultimately your advice will flow into the mitigation of organisational risks, ensuring the organisation is well-positioned to deliver on its responsibilities and commitment to Māori.  The skill to communicate complex ideas to a variety of audiences and build and maintain rapport with others coupled with a political awareness are essential for success.

Applicants with the following skills, knowledge and experience are encouraged to apply;

·   Demonstrated Māori engagement experience.

·   A highly developed understanding of Māori knowledge systems, paradigms and tikanga.

·   Significant capability in reo Māori, and an understanding of Te Ao Māori.

·   Experience working within NZ central government or public sector.

·   Highly developed networking, and relationship building skills.

·   Sound report writing, risk assessment and risk mitigation skills.

·   A personal drive and motivation coupled with a lack of ego.

·   Experience working successfully within multiple workstreams with competing time pressures.

·   Experience working in a fast-paced service delivery function.

Ideally, you will bring strong Māori networks in the Auckland and Wellington regions and be supported by either tertiary qualification in a relevant field of expertise; communications, marketing, public relations, journalism, or have the relevant and equivalent experience.

This position will attract candidates with a highly established cultural competency looking to utilise their pre-existing skill set within a supportive, highly innovative and values centric organisation.

This is a 6-month fixed term position.
