The Homelessness Action Plan is a cross-agency programme of work with four agencies, including HUD, delivering individual initiatives designed to make a positive difference to the lives of some of New Zealand most vulnerable people. Our team is responsible for the aggregation and synthesis of data (quantitative and qualitative) to both report on progress toward the goal of functional zero homelessness and to inform the development of future initiatives. To support the success of these initiatives we are working to improve our understanding of the characteristics of those who are homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless.
About the Team
We’re working on growing our Research and Insights capacity so we can fully support high profile work programmes such as the Homelessness Action plan.

You can expect a flexible, friendly, and supportive working environment where you’ll have the right tools to do your best work, and room to grow.
What we need from you
We are looking for an experienced research and insights professional who proven experience producing quality work on large and/or complex social policy evaluation and monitoring initiatives. You will have well developed skills in the statistical space, but you won’t be the kind to get bogged down in the data. You will have the nouse and know-how to decide what is practically significant. You will be a natural communicator and enjoy working across a wide range of stakeholders. You will be skilled at the telling the story and have the capability to present data both graphically and through the development of written reports.
What to do now
We’re a new Ministry and we’re brimming with positivity about what we can achieve. With a people-focused mandate and a team that genuinely cares about the community, there’s a definite buzz about the place.
