    Help shape the future of education

    At the Ministry of Education, we work together to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

    Our organisation is made up of more than 3,000 talented and committed people around New Zealand, 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 Monitoring and Appointments team is responsible for providing assurance and advice to the Minister of Education on the performance of key education agencies (New Zealand Qualifications Authority, Tertiary Education Commission and Education New Zealand) performance, board appointments and New Zealand Honours work within the Ministry of Education.

    About this role

    To be successful in the role, you'll be working collaboratively with key internal and external stakeholders and developing relationships at senior levels.

    You'll be communicating your ideas through high quality written advice. We'll also count on you to shape, frame and design our processes and thinking using a diverse and inclusive approach.

    Ideally you must be able to analyse and interpret data to draw meaningful insights and produce high quality advice on entity performance or :

  • understand and apply the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • problem-solve complex issues and identify risks, and
  • proactively plan, prioritise responsibilities and lead relevant projects.
  • You'll be joining a small, high-performing team with a culture of constructive and respectful engagement, where we work to our strengths, support each other and work together to make an impact.

    In this role you will gain a good understanding of :

  • machinery of government
  • what performance analysis over an entity looks like
  • the wider education reforms and what it means for monitoring and board appointments
  • critical report writing.
  • We welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds, including Māori, Pacific and those with disabilities, who will enrich our understanding of the education system.

    As a government agency, the Ministry is committed to keeping to the Treaty of Waitangi's guiding principles in our work for and with Māori students, their whānau, hapū and iwi.

    We are committed to building racial equity and excellence in the education sector.

    Are you ready to make a difference?
