Team Member, Māori Land Court – Hastings, Ministry of Justice (Permanent – Full time)
The modern Māori Land Court and Māori Appellate Court are enduring courts of record continued under Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993.
This legislative framework recognises that whenua is a taonga tuku iho of special significance to Māori, and for that reason, it is the primary objective of both Courts to promote and assist in the retention of Māori land in the hands of its owners and for the effective use, management and development of that land by its owners.
In pursuing that objective, they are supported in their operational work by the Ministry of Justice, which provides client advisory, court registry, case management, land registry and judicial support services. Our team members are responsible for processing Māori Land Court applications from end to end (acceptance to completion), making a positive impact on people’s lives. You will be challenged and will have varied work, which will make for an interesting career.
To be successful in the role you will have:
• An understanding of the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills
• Strong demonstrable research skills
• An understanding of Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 and related legislation
• A can-do attitude with a strong customer focus
• Good attention to detail and quality
• A high level of integrity and confidentiality
• A good general knowledge of, and respect for, tikanga Māori and a commitment to further develop your knowledge or Te Reo Māori
You will work within a well-established, experienced and vibrant team alongside technical experts and you’ll be flexible, calm, resilient and in no way daunted by the court environment.
