Help shape the future of Education

At the Ministry of Education, we work together to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

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.

While we work in different groups and on different things, we all strive every day to make the biggest difference we can for every child, young person and adult student in our education system. 

About us 

Education Infrastructure Service (EIS), a part of the Ministry of Education, manages the Crown’s second largest property portfolio of around 2,100 schools with a book value of $18.3 billion, the largest payroll in the country, and transportation of over 100,000 students to and from school each day.

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.  

Reporting to either a Regional Infrastructure Manager or an Infrastructure Manager, a key focus of this role is supporting the Asset Management property team across the region which includes the processing of funding applications/payments and property plans. In addition, fostering and managing external and internal relationships by responding to queries and information requests in a timely and informative manner. 

Please note that there is further information in the attached Job Description.

Your demonstrated mix of coordination skills and experience in a property team within a large and complex delivery organisation is desirable.

To be successful in this role you will need:

  • Demonstrated knowledge of data management processes
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Highly developed relationship management skills
  • Experience working with office and financial systems
  • Experience in liaising with stakeholder groups
  • Working knowledge of Microsoft programmes (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • The ability to understand and apply the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Are you ready to make a difference?

We welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds, including Māori, Pacific and those with disabilities, who will enrich our understanding of the education system.

As a government agency, the Ministry is committed to the Treaty of Waitangi’s guiding principles in our work for and with Māori students, their whānau, hapū and iwi.
