About the role:
The Project Coordinator is a core role within the Industry Policy team. You will be responsible for organising, monitoring, reporting, and overall supporting the progress of the Industry Transformation Plans that the Industry Policy Team leads.
These Plans involve many moving parts and a wide range of stakeholders (internal and external), and require a strong Project Coordinator to manage the process, keep track of moving parts in a fast-paced environment, while maintaining momentum and structure.
About the group:
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 industries in New Zealand. We work actively in partnership with stakeholders across government, industry (businesses and workers) and Iwi/Māori.
A central part of our current work programme is the delivery of Industry Transformation Plans. These Plans are a mechanism for government, industry and Māori to work together to transform key sectors of the economy for the future, in terms of their productivity, sustainability and inclusiveness. The Industry Transformation Plans bring together all relevant parties around an industry to agree a long-term vision for the industry and to identify the actions that can be taken by industry, government and others to realise this vision.
We are part of the Economic Development and Transitions Branch, which is responsible for providing policy advice on issues relating to the growth and development of our firms, sectors and regions. 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.
Skills and Experience:
- Strong organisational skills, with attention to detail and the ability to prioritise effectively across multiple work-streams in a fast-paced, collaborative environment
- Experience in administration and coordination, including:
- developing systems and tracking processes across various teams, including the creation and maintenance of work programme documents

- arranging meetings, teleconferences, conferences and events
- Excellent communication skills (written and oral)

- Exceptional teamwork and collaborative abilities and a willingness to share knowledge and expertise with others
- The ability to quickly establish and build strong relationships with both internal and external stakeholders, including experienced senior leaders, business owners, union representatives, Iwi/Māori and government agencies
- The ability to quickly analyse problems to identify issues, options, strategies and solutions
- Public sector experience is beneficial, but not essential
