Positive change is in motion. But to ensure we maintain the right momentum, expertise and energy to deliver meaningful change for society and a nationwide scale, we need the right people onboard as part of our mission.

This is a fantastic opportunity to lead the Change Implementation team who lead, support and advise on the delivery of change across government procurement.  While this role is part of New Zealand Government Procurement (NZGP) within MBIE, you don’t need to be a procurement professional.
