- Be involved in shaping New Zealand’s economy for the future
- Accelerate the development of your policy skills
- Be part of a dynamic and collaborative team at the interface of government and industry
About the role:
In the Industry Policy Team we develop a deep understanding of the potential of different sectors of the economy, and think strategically about the role of government in supporting the development of industry in New Zealand.
You will work with Senior and Principal Policy Advisors to advance MBIE’s policy work programme focused on the New Zealand screen sector (film, television, post-production and digital effects), and in particular, supporting the review of government investment in this sector.
You will be part of the Economic Development and Transitions Branch. The branch is responsible for providing policy advice on issues relating to the growth of our firms, sectors and regions. We are interested in how the government supports sectors, regions and workers through transitions, whether they be from adapting to climate change policy responses, or other effects such as automation or technological disruption.
We work hard on interesting topics and with a diverse range of stakeholders. We work collaboratively and harness the knowledge and ideas of others with different perspectives and experiences. We celebrate our successes, support each other on the challenges, and importantly, we enjoy what we do.
MBIE supports a wide range of flexible working arrangements. Talk to us about what might work for both you and us.

We will do this through enduring, meaningful and effective partnerships with iwi, Māori, other Māori groups/organisations and the Crown, as this is critical to enable economic and social development, both for Māori and for wider Aotearoa New Zealand. We are committed to continuing to partner with iwi in order to find new sustainable solutions to address long standing systemic and cross-cutting issues facing Māori and wider Aotearoa New Zealand and we are also committed to identifying opportunities for iwi to lead and creating an enabling environment for iwi to leverage these opportunities.
