The Office of the Auditor-General | Te Mana Arotake (the Office) is focused on significantly enhancing its influence and impact on the public sector to deliver better results for Aotearoa New Zealand. The Office is dedicated to making a difference to the lives of New Zealanders.

  • excellent attention to detail;
  • strong administration skills;
  • well-developed relationship-building skills, with the ability to be adaptable and resilient;
  • advanced computer skills (Microsoft Excel and Word in particular), with a familiarity with reporting and data;
  • a can-do, pragmatic approach to problem solving and process improvement; and
  • most importantly, a great sense of humour!

Our benefits

  • Learning and development opportunities
