Te whiwhinga mahi/The Opportunity
The Senior Advisor is a key member of the Advisory Services Team within the Te Ao Mārama Programme.

The Advisory Services Team also plays a critical role in supporting the machinery of government, including preparation of Briefings to the Incoming Minister, Annual Reports and responses to Parliamentary Questions and Official Information Act Requests.
You will be working alongside a team of highly skilled advisors whose work programme will span across a wide range of topics: from community engagements and developing reports, through to dealing with complex operational policy and implementation matters.
This opportunity calls for a Senior Advisor looking to expand their experience, and looking for role with a high level of flex and change. This includes getting involved in analysing and providing advice on increasingly complex issues and taking the lead in the development of pieces of policy work under active coaching.
On a daily basis, you will be working alongside and learning from more experienced policy, programme management, engagement and implementation practitioners.
