Job Description


Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori

Policy and Development

Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori is committed to the revitalisation of te reo Māori for Aotearoa.  The work we do supports the government's Māori language strategy – Maihi Karauna, issued under the Māori Language Act 2016. 

Our vision is the landscape of Aotearoa will resonate with our indigenous language.  With a strong and supportive team of committed advocates we are committed to making this happen.

We are looking for people with appropriate qualifications who relish the opportunity to be part of our organisation and to contribute to the development and implementation of our strategy here at Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.

Language Planning Advisor - Fixed Term Six Months

This role identifies opportunities for the introduction and revitalisation of te reo Māori within government agencies and the private sector through the development of a language plan reflecting the organisation's goals, its ability and readiness.

To apply for this job you will need experience in Māori Language revitalisation and in building strong business relationships at appropriate professional levels internally and externally.  With well-developed influencing skills with a sound understanding of business culture and drivers, you will be an outstanding communicator in both English and Māori.  You will also need to have knowledge and experience of working within the public service (ie knowledge of machinery of government).

With planning and project management skills, you will have a sound understanding of key issues impacting on Māori Language development and regeneration.  You will also have a good understanding of technological developments and how relevant digital media contributes to language revitalisation.  Facilitation and workshop management skills are also advantageous.

The ability to speak te reo Māori is an advantage, as would a commitment to improve your reo Māori development and use.
