Your day-to-day tasks will vary, though this might look like: collaborating with colleagues to achieve project deliverables, applying analytical thinking to new tasks, drafting written advice to senior leaders about projects we're working on, building working relationships with other government agencies and members of the judiciary, or contributing to urgent requests.

- Experience in building and maintaining effective work relationships
- Good writing and oral communication skills
- Experience contributing to projects and improving processes
- A relevant tertiary qualification

- Experience in the family violence and/or sexual violence sectors is not required, but knowledge and understanding of these issues would be an advantage

- Commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and improving outcomes for Māori, Pacific and other populations who experience family violence and sexual violence disproportionately.
