About us | Mō mātou

Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga – Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) leads New Zealand’s housing and urban development work programme. It’s not just about housing – our focus is on people, and the homes and communities they are part of.

The Housing Supply, Response and Partnerships (HSRP) Group leads work to address New Zealanders’ housing needs both now and in the future. The group includes both policy and delivery-focused functions, providing advice to the Government on preventing and reducing homelessness, and funding the delivery of public housing, transitional housing, and housing related support services to tackle homelessness in New Zealand. The group works closely with other parts of HUD, and with HUD’s partners, including Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities, community and transitional housing providers, developers, social services, councils and other agencies.

About the role | Mō te tūnga

HUD is the lead agency for the Aotearoa New Zealand Homelessness Action Plan and its effective delivery is a priority for the organisation. The first phase was publicly released in February 2020 and will deliver on the Government’s vision that homelessness is prevented where possible, or is rare, brief and non-recurring. We need an experienced programme manager who will ensure that implementation of the homelessness action plan and its multiple initiatives is on track, and that key agencies are working collectively to govern and deliver a system-level programme of work that will increase housing supply, design prevention and support initiatives, and implement system improvements to prevent and reduce homelessness. As part of a busy team in a fast paced environment, this role will also get involved in shaping and influencing other programmes of work or group priorities.

About you | Mōu

We are looking for someone with proven experience in largescale programme management, ideally involving delivery across multiple agencies in the social services or government sector. You will be a strong facilitator, with excellent influencing, coordination and relationship management skills and the ability to work in an environment that responds swiftly to shifting priorities. You can work at the strategic level, taking whole-of-programme perspective and providing thought leadership, but equally happy to roll up your sleeves and get into the detail if needed.

You should bring:

  • A depth of experience leading, developing and implementing specific project plans and processes, from business cases and implementation plans to evaluation and monitoring regimes
  • Experience managing and supporting governance at an executive level and/or within a multi-agency role
  • Effective relationship building and management skills, with a diverse range of stakeholders
  • Highly developed analytical and problem solving skills
  • People leadership experience in the form of coaching, mentoring and development of team members
  • A continual improvement and empowerment approach.

This role best suits a true collaborator who can take a system view and sees the value in working widely to achieve outcomes. For those seeking a new challenge and rewarding work in 2021, please apply today.
