Job Description

Committee Fee Member – Community Representative


Public Notice


On behalf of the Minister for Social Development, the Ministry of Social Development is seeking community focused people for the role of Community Representative on the local Benefits Review Committee (Oamaru/North Otago region). 

The Benefits Review Committee provides an informal setting for clients to review decisions made by the Ministry of Social Development about their benefit entitlement. As a Community Representative you will provide a community perspective to the Benefit Review Committee's decision making process. You will be required to read benefit review reports, attend hearings arranged for the client and Ministry staff, and consider decisions on a case by case basis.

Hearings are scheduled to be held at least fortnightly, however as there is a pool of Community Representatives in each region, individual Community Representatives may not be required to sit on every hearing.

In this role you will need to be able to relate to a range of people within the wider community, have good community experience and knowledge, and respect the views, beliefs and cultural perspectives of others.

This is a Ministerial appointment. Names of successful candidates will be forwarded for consideration by the Minister for Social Development.

This position is in the Oamaru/North Otago area only.
