Fixed-term, October 2022 - 2 weeks after the general election, 2023

If you have proven experience in policy analysis or an equivalent role and are passionate about working for a greener and fairer Aotearoa, then this might be the ideal job for you. The Kaitohutohu Kaupapa Here Māori role is a unique opportunity to ensure that Green Party policies uphold the Charter of the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand, including Te Tiriti of Waitangi obligations.

The Kaitohutohu Kaupapa Here Māori will primarily work with Te Mauri policy rōpū and will also work with the wider Māori leadership of Te Rōpū Pounamu (Te Ohu Kaimahi), Te Mātāwaka (the Green’s Māori and Pasifika Caucus) and Policy Area Sub-Committees (PASCs) to develop Green Party policies. 

The Green Party works hard to provide its small team of office staff with a rewarding work environment where each person is valued. The successful candidate will be someone who has extensive understanding of the issues surrounding te Tiriti o Waitangi, Te Ao Māori, racism and colonisation in Aotearoa New Zealand and proven experience working within Te Ao Māori. They will have excellent analytical, administrative and organisational skills as well as the ability to work cooperatively with diverse people.

The role will be based in our Party offices in central Wellington. The member-driven nature of the organisation means that the Kaitohutohu Kaupapa Here Māori will need to be available during some evenings and occasional weekends.

The Green Party is committed to equal employment opportunities. We acknowledge the challenges of applying especially for young, disabled, LGBTIQA+, women and/or people of colour. We are happy to have a conversation about how we can support your application.
