Work type:

Who are we:

Every day, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) connects New Zealand export businesses with opportunities to grow and go global - their success is our success! Our people are based in 50 offices, working across 24 time zones and 40 languages to support New Zealand businesses in over 100 countries. A role with the Ministerial team allows you to build relationships with all parts of NZTE and wider NZ Inc. agencies.

What you’ll be doing:

This is an important role where you are involved in how NZTE works with our Ministers (including the Prime Minister) for the benefit of our customers - be it for a one on one discussion, company openings or other high profile events. This is a small but busy team, so you’ll see everything from parliamentary questions to briefings. The work requires flexibility and agility. While day to day you could be working on briefings or advice for our ministers, there are also project opportunities which can see you joining meetings with representatives from other agencies, and supporting Ministerial travel and missions.

What you’ll need to be successful:

This role provides a unique insight into NZTE and how we work, both as an organisation and with our external partners. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has excellent attention to detail, strong project management and communication skills, is effective at building stakeholder relationships across the organisation and externally and has a can-do attitude. As part of the Ministerial team, you will get a number of opportunities to work closely with NZTE's regional and international offices, attend events and engage with leadership teams.

Why you’ll love working here:

NZTE is a truly global organisation where we work across different time zones and offer flexibility because of this. We know that life isn’t all about work so we will give you the right technology to allow you to work anywhere and balance your time. On top of this, we also offer 5 weeks annual leave so you can have that extra time in the year to enjoy what you love doing!
