We are making significant changes to how we deliver our purpose

So that we do the following:

  • Deliver greater responsiveness, accessibility and integrated services and support
  • Take practical action to give effect to te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • Give priority to sector relationship, regional and local voice

Our organisation is made up of talented and committed people around Aotearoa, 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

The People Capability team supports the organisation to look after our greatest strength – he tāngata – our people. We understand that to get the best outcomes for children and young people, our people need to be at their best too.

Putting our people first is at the heart of our Ministry People Strategy – He Huarahi Pai – A good path for our people.

Mō tēnei tūranga – About this role

In this role you get to use your excellent organising skills, energy and can-do approach to provide support across the People Capability group. This will include assisting Managers with needs around diaries, meetings, events and other administrative or coordination work needed. You will also develop knowledge of the Ministry’s administrative and support processes and be the go-to person on these. The role includes coordinating some aspects of the financial processes such as raising purchase orders, paying invoices and working with the Programme Manager to track spend across the group.

This is a new role and is a great opportunity to stamp your own mark and make the role your own. You will get to work in a collaborative team environment where we respect each other and value diversity.

We are looking for someone who has a solution-orientated approach and willingness to get stuck in. You will want to make things work seamlessly and where they don’t you will find ways to make things work better. You will see issues or problems before they arise and act quickly to smooth the way. Experience in administrative processes will be useful, including in basic financial processing but a willingness to learn and an aptitude for being organised is most important. You will have a can-do approach and be willing to help out with many things big and small.
