Senior Advisors


About us

The Parent Information Community Intelligence (PICI) group designs and drives initiatives that support parents, whānau, hapū, iwi, employers, and communities (demand side groups) to positively influence our education system and help every New Zealander learn, progress and achieve.

Families are the most powerful influence on a child’s progression and achievement. Building powerful partnerships between whānau, employers, communities and educators will help raise aspirations and lift progress and achievement for all learners. We design and deliver initiatives and programmes that support these partnerships with a focus on tamariki the education system has not served well – Māori, Pacific and disabled learners and whānau in particular.

Te Hurihanganui is one of our core pieces of work. It is a kaupapa that will address racism, strengthen equity and accelerate the educational achievement and wellbeing of ākonga Māori and their whanau in the education system.

About the roles

We are looking for Senior Advisors to support the strategic alignment of internal Ministry of Education and external agency implementation of this kaupapa in six communities across Aotearoa. The Senior Advisors will work closely with the System Change Manager and Kaiwhakahaere to provide the operational and administrative support needed for transformative shifts in the education system.

Both roles will be responsible for working collaboratively across the team to coordinate and maximise opportunities for transformative shift.

We are looking for people who:

  • are passionate about improving outcomes for ākonga Māori and their whānau
  • can demonstrate experience in the practical application of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and fostering racial equity
  • can communicate verbally and in written form effectively in te reo Māori at a beginner level and has an understanding of tikanga Māori
  • have a collaborative working style with a drive to deliver results
  • high level of attention to detail and time management ability
  • If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

    Applications close on 1 April 2021.
