About the role

The Senior Advisor helps enable Investment Policy's three priorities :

  • Investment Attraction
  • Improving SME Access to Finance
  • Supporting early-stage Capital Markets
  • This role is to support (and at times lead) the development of the forthcoming Investment Attraction Strategy (targeting high quality foreign direct investment that contributes to a more productive, sustainable, and inclusive economy).

    This role involves both strategic and practical ideas and advice.

    On a daily basis you would build relationships amongst key stakeholders (especially from New Zealand Trade and Enterprise and MBIE's Innovative Partnerships), consider a wide range of views on the latest investment attraction thinking, and provide recommendations to Ministers that are both principled and practical.

    The fixed-term is to cover parental leave, and the position could be focused exclusively on the strategy for a part-timer, or scoped more expansively for a full-timer.

    Either way the job is to connect well with other people and priorities in the Investment Policy Team, and with stakeholders

    About you :

    You are likely to have experience in sometimes complex policy formulation and possibly also in investment policy and economics.

    Your well-practiced skill set and work style should work in harmony with our team.

    Desired :

  • Broad ranging knowledge and ideally some experience in economics, finance and / or investment policy environments
  • Strategic knowledge of formulating policy advice for Ministers
  • Experience with stakeholder engagement & management
  • Ability to think critically and put forward a well-argued case
  • A good tertiary qualification
  • About MBIE :

    The purpose of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is to Grow New Zealand for All. Our goal is to support a strong and high-performing economy by creating an environment that supports businesses to become more productive and internationally competitive.
