What you’ll bring for success:

  • An ability to translate complicated financial concepts and data into useful management information
  • An ability to communicate with a wide range of people and gain their trust and respect
  • A proven ability to influence in order to support effective financial management and decision making
  • The ability to work under pressure, with little supervision to meet deadlines, set priorities and meet the requirements of a range of stakeholders

About us

The Royal Commission of Inquiry into Abuse in Care was established in February 2018. Over the next four years, the Inquiry will investigate the abuse and neglect of children, young people and vulnerable adults who were in the care of State and faith-based institutions in New Zealand between 1950 and 1999 and examine ways to stop further abuse.

The Royal Commission is committed to the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the Māori Partnership team bring a kaupapa, tikanga and te reo Māori focus to the development of the Inquiry work programme.

Opportunities like this are few and far between; will you join us on our journey?
