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 our group and team


ESP - Education System Policy

Our focus is strategic policy advice.

We are interested in the long-term health of the system.

We provide advice to enable an education system which contributes to the skills and knowledge needed by people for social, cultural, economic and environmental wellbeing.

The ECE Policy Team is responsible for regulatory and funding policy for early learning services. We are focused on improving the quality of early childhood education, particularly for children who have the most to gain from early learning. Our work is varied, challenging, and worthwhile.

About you

We would like to hear from you if you:

  • enjoy working with others to find solutions to complex policy problems
  • can provide evidence-based analysis and advice
  • have previous policy experience, including a good grounding in Government processes and policy development frameworks.

This is an opportunity to join a supportive and performance-driven team, where you will work on a range of policy areas and work with people across government and in the sector.

If you want to be involved in shaping New Zealand's future and have an interest in education policy, we want to hear from you.

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.
