Tuia te tangata, tuia ngā kōrero, tuia ngā taonga

The Collections and Research Directorate is home to our core museological capabilities that collect, curate, conserve, and protect taonga in order to deliver on Te Papa's mission as New Zealand's national museum.

The Mātauranga Māori curatorial team works alongside kaitiaki, curators and other stakeholders in museums and cultural centres.

The team works to strengthen relationships between iwi, hapū and whānau and their taonga, whilst also supporting the aspirations and mana motuhake of iwi Māori in the Treaty settlement process.

A foundation of this mahi is to also advocate and promote Māori culture, identity and philosophy. Te reo Māori me ōna tikanga are correspondingly promoted as fundamental practice in Te Papa's care of taonga, the Mana Taonga principle a key cornerstone in Te Papa's bicultural foundations.

As Pouwhakahaere Mātauranga Māori, you'll play a vital role in the Collections and Research Directorate, developing and delivering a sound intellectual and strategic direction for Mātauranga Māori and the management of its exhibitions and collections.

You will lead the curatorial team, fostering their creativity and innovative minds, enabling them to bring your strategies and ideas to life.

You will lead a proposition that drives the future audience engagement of Māori culture and heritage and you will have overarching management across the entire approach, from acquisition policy and risk management, to collection and exhibition supervision.

Conducting independent research on a regular basis will ensure you are at the forefront of any emerging trends, and with a heavy focus on bringing more of our collections into the digital era, you'll create a successful and interactive structure that will enhance our online offering.

You have a number of high quality national and international networks with which you can connect to at a curatorial level, and you're well renowned for your successful and innovative research outputs.

That ambassadorial bent of yours will motivate key stakeholders and partnerships as well as the wider community to engage with your concepts, meaning that what we present to Aotearoa and the world is beyond compare.

All applicants must be able to legally work in New Zealand and have the ability to maintain that.
