About us

The Parent Information and Community Intelligence (PICI) involves parents, communities and employers in education because they matter to learners’ success. The group designs and drives initiatives that support parents, whanau, hapū, iwi, communities, and employers to positively influence our education system and help every New Zealand learner progress and achieve. It also works across the Ministry of Education to contribute to wider transformation of our education system.

Parents, families and communities are the most powerful influence on a child’s progress and achievement. Building powerful partnerships between families, communities and educators will help raise aspirations and lift progress and achievement for every learner.

About the role

The Project Coordinator will help develop and deliver a programme that supports education to employment pathways for young people by showcasing trades and ‘earn while you learn’ pathways. They provide administrative and operational support to the team and will be responsible for supporting careers events around Aotearoa, connecting young people with employers and industries.

  • the ability to work collaboratively and effectively with a broad range of stakeholders
  • great communication skills
