Job Description

Mō mātou | About Us

As New Zealand’s national statistics office, Tatauranga Aotearoa Stats NZ is uniquely positioned to support the decisions that the Government, Māori and Iwi organisations, businesses, NGO’s and New Zealanders make every day. Our structure, culture and systems are designed with collaboration and customers in mind – mobilised and working together to realise our ambition: About Aotearoa, for Aotearoa – data that improves lives today and for generations to come.

 Mō te tūnga | The role

Bring your mātauranga Māori, te ao Māori and lived experience to a role that will allow you to innovate, create and implement new ways of working to support Stats NZ in becoming a leading organisation across government in Māori-Crown relations.

What will you do? You will lead an organisation-wide transformation of thinking around ‘what capability is’ and deliver to the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) a multi-year programme of work to support that transformation, with the People & Capability supporting you at each step of that journey.  This consideration of ‘capability’ will cover the full range of our People Plan, including talent management, revised recruitment processes, progressive people policies and reward and recognition initiatives.

You’ll bring the ability to lead an executive-level conversation about the skills we must foster in our people to ensure te ao Māori, tikanga Māori and mātauranga Maori are at the heart of how we commission work, how we develop work and how we engage with our internal and external stakeholders.

What we can offer you is a place in a team that has a genuine desire to honour our Tiriti commitments and make real gains for Māori. A place where you will be supported and encouraged to innovate and lead courageous conversations. A place where you’ll be recognised for the value your lived experience brings.

Starting salary: $114K -131K  negotiable
