Do you have a strategic mind, an eye for detail and a drive to form positive relationships across a busy sector? The Ministry of Justice's Sector Group now has an opportunity for a Senior Advisor to join the Investment Team - could this be you?
The Investment Team is part of the Ministry's Sector Group.

We are seeking a driven Senior Advisor that can bring system and sector wide perspectives to bear on complex issues. Working as part of the Sector Investment team you will support justice sector agencies to make robust and informed policy and investment decisions.
To be successful in this role you'll need superb relationship management and reporting skills with the ability to navigate effectively across multiple agencies at all levels. While you'll be an expert at understanding complex and detailed processes and concepts, you'll be able to explain these in plain language. You'll have a thorough understanding of what drives good implementation practice and value the importance of evidence underpinning action
Particular skill sets we are looking for (strongly sought after, but not a requirement for applicants):
- Experience of working with an investment approach to strategy and policy development
- Ability to view and articulate investment in the justice sector through Te reo Maori
- Investment advisor or Vote Analyst experience
- Deep experience of the Justice Sector
The Sector Group is a team of innovation, strategy and insight. You'll have the opportunity to work collaboratively with other agencies and a range of people in the Ministry of Justice. You'll be exposed to leaders in the organisation and sector, and have the opportunity to undertake work for Ministers. You will be challenged and interested by the diverse range of work and will enjoy a busy work programme with real impact.
This is an exciting time to join a progressive, innovative and hardworking team that is helping shape the future of New Zealand's justice sector.
