The Strategic Policy and Programmes Group (“SPP”) works across MBIE to help bring its various parts together, influence it to look across and ahead, and incubate new ideas and programmes. The regulatory systems team in SPP does this for one of MBIE's core roles- stewardship of a large collection of regulatory systems. If we are to grow New Zealand for all we need to be amongst the best in the world at regulation, and a lot of what we do in MBIE is about regulation- making policy for it, designing it, delivering services to make regulation work, and ensuring compliance with it. The work will give you a lot of insight into what government does and why it does it. You will be working with a diverse group of people in a friendly and stimulating environment.
