The Waitangi Tribunal Unit provides a range of services to support the Waitangi Tribunal inquire into and report on claims submitted by Māori under the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975.

We are looking for an experienced professional to join our Inquiry Facilitation team as a Senior Facilitator.

Senior Facilitators provide leadership and in-depth technical knowledge to support effective planning and the high-quality delivery of a large programme of complex commission of inquiry work.

They lead the facilitation of inquiry proceedings and are relied upon for sound judgement, robust advice and excellent communication by a wide range of stakeholders including the judiciary, Tribunal members, claimants and their counsel.

Your excellent planning, project and relationship management skills will contribute to your success in this exciting and challenging role. Accomplished analytical skills are required for you to provide authoritative advice to Presiding Officers and Tribunal Panels throughout inquiry proceedings on complex evidential and procedural matters.  As a senior member of the team, you will provide positive role-modelling, mentoring and quality assurance.

Background and professional experience working in areas of New Zealand history, public policy or law, plus a relevant tertiary qualification is required.  Proven experience in successful project leadership across a complex inquiry-type programme and a talent to mentor and support staff is what we are looking for.
