The DCE CGI is a critical role and a key contributor to the Senior Leadership Team at MBIE. You will have a deep understanding of the principles and conventions of government, including the legal and whole-of-government basis on which the New Zealand State sector operates. This knowledge will help support the stewardship of MBIE, including its medium to long term sustainability, organisational health, capability and capacity, and place in the wider public sector. 

 Do you have executive leadership experience in corporate services, governance or related function as well as political acumen and a demonstrated ability to work with Ministers? If so, then we would welcome the opportunity to discuss this role further with you.

We are looking for a highly successful leader who has:

  • Significant experience at a very senior executive level in the State sector
  • Proven success leading large and/or complex corporate services functions
  • Sophisticated and proven strategic leadership experience at a senior level in a large and complex organisation
  • Demonstrated success leading multiple medium to large change programmes

We do this by working with others to create an environment that supports businesses to be more productive and internationally competitive, enables all New Zealanders to participate in the economy through improved job opportunities and by working to ensure quality housing is more affordable.

Our aspirations are echoed in our Māori identity – Hīkina Whakatutuki – which broadly means ‘lifting to make successful'.
