Job Description

  • Full time Senior Business Advisor role
  • Opportunity for experienced Advisor to step up in a high profile area
  • Based in Wellington, CBD


2018 is going to be a huge year for the Building System Performance branch (BSP) at MBIE.  BSP is the Government's lead advisor on the building regulatory system and we want to be world-leading. 

Last year we transformed how we work to make sure we're ready for 2018 and beyond.  You'll have heard about KiwiBuild and not surprisingly we have a big role to play in it.  As well as delivering more affordable houses for New Zealanders, KiwiBuild is also an opportunity to shape the building regulatory system to meet New Zealand's current and future needs.  And that's where you come in…

Ensuring that the building regulatory system supports New Zealand's social and economic aspirations is a very big undertaking, but at MBIE such challenges are what drives us. It's a place where if you see an opportunity to make things better and to enhance the system, you're empowered to act on that opportunity.

You will support the Business Manager in establishing and maintaining relevant governance and leadership arrangements.

You will also provide support on things like planning and reporting, preparation of business plans, stakeholder engagement and being a key contact between the group and other groups within MBIE. 


Why work for us

  • Enjoy the variety that each day brings with the different people you meet and things you get involved in.
  • Sense of satisfaction from identifying barriers and facilitating solutions in a relationship management focussed role.
  • Enjoy the open plan, friendly and supportive team environment that exists within MBIE.

  • A strong understanding of the machinery of government processes that underpin the operations of the public sector environment, such as Cabinet and parliamentary processes, accountability, and the performance, reporting and financial management regime
