Te āhuatunga a Te Kooti Whenua Māori/About the Māori Land Court
We are a court of record. Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 (our Act) recognises the significance of Māori land as a taonga tuku iho of special significance to Māori. The 2020 Amendments have refreshed the Act to better enable and realise the aspirations of Māori landowners. The primary objective of the Māori Land and Māori Appellate Courts is 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.
Through its record, Te Kooti Whenua Māori is the guardian of the whakapapa of the land, which is the people.
Te whiwhinga mahi/The Opportunity
We have a vacancy for a Pae Manawa/Principal Liaison Officer based in our Tākitimu Māori Land Court office in Hastings.
This is a rare opportunity to showcase your relationship management skills and abilities, to broker positive engagement and outcomes for Māori landowners with the Māori Land and Māori Appellate Courts.
Our Pae Manawa are responsible for providing specialist facilitation, assessment, analysis and information services to Māori land owners and customers of the Court to enable them to obtain and access specialist resources and professional advice.
A key function of the role is to facilitate the occupation, utilisation and development of Māori land and assets. This is achieved through proactively developing relationships and working in partnership with iwi, hapū, other Māori organisations, government agencies and relevant external service providers.
Our Pae Manawa also conduct seminars and other educational events with Māori land owners and other customers.
