The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment – NZ
Senior Policy Advisor Jobs in New Zealand. Come and meet us in the UK this September.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is the government’s lead business-facing agency. Our purpose is to grow the New Zealand economy to provide a better standard of living for all New Zealanders.
We do this by working with others to help businesses to be more competitive, improving job opportunities for all and by ensuring good quality housing is more affordable.
MBIE was formed in July 2012 by bringing together the Ministry of Economic Development, Ministry of Science and Innovation, Department of Labour and Department of Building and Housing.
Make your move to New Zealand this year.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is an incredibly diverse organisation. We employ over 3,300 people across a range of roles and we are all 100% committed to growing New Zealand for all.
MBIE representatives will be at the expo to talk to about the Ministry and roles currently being advertised, including Principal Policy Advisor and Senior Policy Advisor.
At MBIE we look for passionate people with diverse perspectives and backgrounds, who love an intellectual challenge and want to create a better New Zealand for our people.
We are keen to hear from you if you are a policy professional considering a move to New Zealand – especially if you are already working at senior or principal level.
What you’ll be doing
As a Principal Policy Advisor your role will be challenging – you will have plenty of latitude to use your intellectual leadership to drive projects and help shape the future direction of the work programme of your team and the branch. While Principals do not generally have formal direct reports, principal advisors have responsibility for overseeing staff assigned to specific projects and for coaching and mentoring to help build the capability of the Ministry.
As a Senior Policy Advisor you will need to be able to think broadly and strategically across a wide range of issues and apply critical thinking and analytical skills to challenge the status quo. You’ll have the opportunity to develop, lead and deliver significant public policy projects and develop fit for purpose solutions to difficult issues. This means you’ll need sophisticated interpersonal skills and political nouse, with the ability to influence a wide range of audiences.
If you’ve got what we’re looking for we want to meet you in London or Manchester this September. Please register to book your place to meet our MBIE representatives at the Working International Event in.
