Full-Time Kaitohutohu Matua | Senior Advisor – Māori Data Capability team

Statistics New Zealand  Wellington City, Wellington $ 89,177 - $ 104,914

Job Description

Mō mātou | About Us

As New Zealand’s national statistics office, Tatauranga Aotearoa Stats NZ is uniquely positioned to support the decisions that the Government, Māori and Iwi organisations, businesses, NGO’s and New Zealanders make every day. Our structure, culture and systems are designed with collaboration and customers in mind – mobilised and working together to realise our ambition: About Aotearoa, for Aotearoa – data that improves lives today and for generations to come.

The Māori Data Capability team supports the Te Ao Māori data capability of government and the data capacity and capability of iwi and Māori organisations. 

 Mō te tūnga | The role

In this role you will focus on supporting the te ao Māori data capability of government and coordinate how the government data system responds to the data and data capability needs of iwi. You will do this by supporting the governance of relevant groups (which may include cross-agency, and iwi and Māori organisations), taking learnings from our work with iwi, preparing guidance/training, delivering workshops, organising wānanga and engaging widely across government and with iwi and Māori organisations. You will also work with others across the organisation to broker access to other skills and data that may be required.  

The Māori Data Capability team will coordinate the work programme closely with the Te Tohu Rautaki Angitu Māori – Partnerships and Engagement team, which oversees our Crown-Māori relations. We will work in a way that honours our Te Tiriti commitments, doing what is needed to support the data capacity and capability of iwi.

You will be joining a new team in a new work programme and therefore your role will be varied, being adaptable is important.

This role is ideally based in Wellington.

Starting salary: $ 89,177 – $ 104,914 negotiable

 Mōu | About you

Knowledge and experience of working in or with Te Ao Māori is highly desirable but not essential. What is essential is your ngākau māhaki, ability to listen with true openness, learn, receive feedback, consider opposing views and to be comfortable and able to work in situations where the process isn’t pre-defined or clear to begin with.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Wishes to support iwi aspirations, and values the benefits and opportunities that emerge from working together.
  • Has an open and fresh approach, inclusive and collaborative style with a strong focus on delivery and outcomes.
  • Can effectively manage a varied work programme involving multiple partners and stakeholders.
  • Is skilled in building and working on strong, enduring relationships.
  • Has experience of supporting and participating in governance groups, liaising with and coordinating multi-agency action.
  • Has demonstrated experience in operational policy, i.e. writing guidance and support materials – how to turn ideas into action. Experience in delivering workshops is desirable.
  • Has knowledge/familiarity or a demonstrable commitment to learning/understanding Te Ao Māori (including mātauranga, tikanga and reo Māori), in order to understand and contribute meaningful work and outcomes for iwi and Māori communities, and deliver on our Tiriti partner responsibilities

You’ll be joining an inclusive environment where people, regardless of gender, race, disability, religion or background are supported to be able to do their best work. This includes:

  • The opportunity to develop and grow your career (coaching culture, study support, secondments, acting up)
  • Flexible by default, balance with life and work commitments
  • Exciting and meaningful work that makes a difference to Aotearoa
  • Health and wellbeing support
