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.

Our vision for school property is that all schools have quality learning environments as part of a well-managed and sustainable portfolio that helps deliver equitable and excellent outcomes for every child.

About the role

Earlier this year we announced Te Rautaki Rawa Kura – the School Property Strategy, which shares our vision and direction for school property management.  To help implement the strategy we have created a number of new positions to ensure that we have the right foundation and alignment of functions to support implementation of Te Rautaki Rawa Kura.
