Investing in our future

Te Puni Kōkiri, the Ministry of Māori Development, is the principal connector between the Crown and whānau, hapū and iwi; invests to support achieving aspirations; and works in partnership to design innovative approaches to accelerate development.

 

Our commitment to enable whānau, hapū and iwi to succeed underpins everything that we do, and supports our vision of ‘Thriving whanau’.

Our people are at the heart of achieving this vision. We believe it is our people who embody our organisation’s potential.  Our people oversee $200 million in initiatives fostered to support development outcomes, and to create our best future.

As the Manager Risk and Assurance, you will provide independent and objective assurance, audit and risk management, as well as advisory support to assist Te Puni Kōkiri leadership to deliver our priorities, key areas of focus and organisational oversight.

You will bring a tertiary degree in a relevant field and leadership experience in a risk and assurance role within the public sector. You’ll be a natural communicator and be comfortable working with other Managers to educate and support them understand and deliver against their risk management obligations.

At Te Puni Kōkiri, we work to create an environment where you’ll thrive as a part of a whanau that is committed to the improving the wellbeing of whānau, hapū and iwi - you’ll take pride in the work that you do, because you know that it matters.

We are guided by our values of Te Wero (excellence), Manaakitanga (valuing people and relationships), He Toa Takitini (working collectively) and Ture tangata (being creative and innovative). We invest in our people – you’ll be encouraged to develop and contribute to your fullest potential. We believe strongly in work/life balance and understand that your whānau is just as important as you. And we’re committed to your wellbeing, financial security and learning and development – we even provide in-house Te Reo Māori Training.

If you add all of this to the knowledge that the work you’re doing really makes a difference, then you will know that this is a truly unique opportunity.
