About the role | Mō te tūnga

Ideally you will already be performing a Quality Advisory role within another Government agency focussing on service delivery and/or practice quality and improvement of people-based systems, or, come with experience in a similar role within Corrections.  

Success will come from your ability to demonstrate a high level of credibility and collaboration, being innovative and creative and continuously building and maintaining long lasting relationships.  You’ll have excellent written and verbal communication skills, demonstrate cultural competence, come with a vast amount of curiosity and a willingness to learn, and be extremely personable and approachable.

Working in a dynamic team with a highly proactive, supportive and consultative Manager you will support the provision of expert advice and support to the wider business, supporting the organisation to fully embrace and evolve continuous improvement.


About you | Mōu

To be successful in this role you will be someone who:

  • Committed to providing excellent quality and service
  • A willingness to ask questions and learn new skills
  • Has a “big-picture” focus with an ability to keep track of the details
  • Has a background motivating people, getting them on-side, and effectively communicating information.

As part of the work, we conduct regular reviews and provide tools and systems to improve our operational services.


Ara Poutama Aotearoa is a name that has been gifted to us by Iwi and conveys the responsibility we have to support and guide those in our care to reach their potential.  Our strategy, Hōkai Rangi (, provides a clear direction of travel – one that builds on the good things that are already happening, and, most importantly, how we can innovate to find new ways of doing things to achieve better outcomes for Māori, whānau and communities. 

It is an exciting time and we continue to seek out talented individuals who are committed to an inclusive, vibrant workplace. We recognise and celebrate the uniqueness of individuals, and that of the collective talent in our whānau.
