  • Initiative. Are you motivated to go beyond the immediate task, problem or issue?
  • Problem solving. Can you think analytically and critically? Do you find complex problems interesting, and have a knack for solving them?
  • Communication skills. Are you an excellent communicator? Can you simplify complex information and ask questions to improve your understanding?



The Justice Policy Group actively seeks a diverse workplace, with a variety of life experiences. The Policy Group actively seeks to build its understanding and capability of Te Āo Māori and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and the ability to apply this to your work is particularly valuable.
