Fixed Term until Friday 28th September 2018 - Auckland

  • Your culture, your community, your career.
  • Do something positive for them all.

Maori play a major part in shaping the identity of our nation - both historically and looking forward. That's why gaining a deeper understanding of what the Maori culture represents in society - and where it's headed - carries so much importance. So as New Zealand looks towards the Census in 2018, we're looking to you to use its findings for the benefit of all Maori.

The Census is the closest look we take at ourselves as a nation. Using the sub-population data related to Maori, you'll help us design and conduct Te Kupenga (formally the Maori Social Survey).  It's a separate initiative to Census, but one that will allow us to 'dig deeper' into Maori society and how we can best bring benefit to it. Your duties will include, but are not limited to:

  • Assisting with training interviewers and staff in cultural awareness and Maori protocol
  • Assist with developing training material
  • Some translation of English to Te Reo
  • Customer liaison and feedback
  • Reporting

Fluent in Te Reo (both written and spoken) you'll be a confident and charismatic communicator who enjoys engaging with various stakeholders. You'll also need the ability to travel regularly throughout New Zealand.

Skills required to be successful in this role:

  • Relationship Management with the ability to connect with Maori community.
  • Strong computer skills.
  • Negotiation Skills
  • Good facilitation
  • Project Management skills
  • Full drivers licence

This is a prime opportunity to help improve social outcomes and do something of real significance for Maori, and your career.  To learn more about this role and to apply online please visit
