The Organisation

Te Puni Kōkiri's core purpose is ensuring that iwi, hapū and whānau Māori succeed as Māori. Our role is to support Government to strengthen Treaty of Waitangi partnerships and facilitate iwi, hapū and whānau Māori to succeed at home and globally.

Te Puni Kōkiri oversees just over $200 million in initiatives fostered to support Māori development outcomes. Due to the growth in the portfolio of innovative, targeted investment initiatives, an Investment Te Puni has been established to ensure strategic, agile and results-based investment governance. It signals a move away from a transactional model to a relationship- and outcomes-focused approach supported by evidential analysis and robust monitoring and tracking.

The newly established Investment Te Puni requires a range of strategic and technical skills and capability so it can deliver results. The newly formed management team will support the Deputy Chief Executive Investment, and contains six tier-three leadership roles:

  • Statutory Entities Lead
  • Māori Growth Lead
  • Investment Planning and Performance Manager
  • Operational Policy and Design Manager
  • Business Manager
  • Whānau Ora Lead

The Role

The Business Manager position is the source of Business Administration expertise for the assigned puni. Reporting to the Deputy Chief Executive, this role has three core areas of focus:

  • Providing practical management of strategic planning, budgetary and financial management processes;
  • Offering support to specific activities such as contingency planning, security management and emergency procedures; and
  • Coordinating information and issues on behalf of the Deputy Chief Executive. The Business Manager will be part of the Investment Te Puni leadership group.

The Candidate Profile

This role requires professional expertise in Business Administration within a Public Service environment. You should also bring effective people leadership and management experience, including the capability to build and maintain effective relationships. Further key competencies include:

  • Demonstrated understanding of the business cycles and requirements of core government departments including budgeting, planning, reporting and accounting cycles
  • Strong presentation skills and personal credibility to be able to speak on behalf of the Deputy Chief Executive
  • Comfort operating in a tikanga / kaupapa Māori environment; a degree of fluency in Te Reo Māori is of benefit
