Te Puni Kōkiri advises the Government on suitable candidates for many of the appointments to government boards, committees and advisory groups.

Congratulations on your achievement. Generally speaking, agencies are looking for people with extensive senior level work experience, so you may want to wait until you have built up a working CV.
If you'd like to nominate someone else please send their full contact details with a brief summary of their skills and experience. We can then contact them directly to follow up.

You are not obliged to accept an appointment if it is offered to you.

The right to access and correct your personal information is provided for by the Privacy Act 1993. Email us at email@example.com to update your CV details.
