  • Summary:
  • Are you curious about how transport can shape the future of New Zealand?
  • Do you want to influence and help navigate the increasing demands on transport?
  • Or perhaps you are keen to join a highly productive, supportive, and fun policy team?

As the government’s chief policy adviser on transport, the Ministry has an important strategic leadership role. Key to this is thinking about the levers we have to deliver social, economic, environmental, health and safety outcomes for all New Zealanders.

The Demand Management and Revenue policy team is responsible for advising the government on why and how it should influence transport choices (how, when, and where people travel and freight is transported) and the funding and financing tools for land transport, including road user charges, fuel taxes, congestion pricing and tolling. The team currently has vacancies – one at adviser level and one at senior adviser level.

It’s a busy time at the Ministry, and with the Demand Management and Revenue team you’ll be joining a bunch of high-paced, motivated, professional and friendly people.

What you’ll bring

Tertiary qualified with policy experience at adviser/senior adviser level, you have initiative and build strong relationships. Your excellent written communication skills will ideally be complemented by a comfort with completing quantitative analysis. We welcome those with an understanding of economic frameworks.

What we offer

There’s a lot of opportunity here. The Ministry of Transport is a small and friendly agency that lends itself to day-to-day variety. You’ll gain exposure across the whole sector because of transport’s significance everywhere, from health to the economy to the environment.

The salary range for these roles is:

Senior Adviser: $91,000 to $129,000

Adviser: $65,000 to $107,000
