At the Ministry of Education, we work together to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

Our organisation is made up of more than 3,000 talented and committed people around New Zealand, from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.

While we work in different groups and on different things, we all strive every day to make the biggest difference we can for every child, young person and adult student in our education system.


About our group and team

Our teams around the country work closely with the Early Childhood and Schooling sectors, providers, and communities to provide support, expertise and resources to help children and young people reach their full potential.

We are a close knit team that work together to achieve high quality products to support the wider business to provide the best service to the sector.

You will produce one-off or repeatable solutions to questions by manipulating large and complex data sets. The role includes developing and reporting on indicators of performance, analysing and monitoring trends.

You will be skilled in helping others interpret the information available and in turn be able to understand their information requirements and plan for this as part of the ongoing reporting improvement process.
