About the role
MBIE is committed to investment in its regulatory systems and is investing in our capability as regulatory stewards. You will help to drive MBIE's regulatory stewardship programme to reach this goal. You will be part of a small team which reports to a sub-committee of MBIE's Senior Leadership Team (SLT) about regulatory system performance, and works with teams across MBIE to help make regulatory stewardship part of MBIE's “DNA” - the way we do things.
The purpose of the Regulatory System Assurance team is to provide the SLT and external stakeholders with confidence that MBIE's regulatory systems are robust and operating effectively. This is a newly established function, and you will be part of a team developing high quality frameworks, systems and processes, undertaking assessments, writing reports and recommendations, and gathering insights on the performance of MBIE's regulatory systems to help reduce the risk of regulatory failure.
As you do so, you will work with a wide variety of senior leaders in policy, operational and service delivery roles across MBIE – giving you the opportunity to see what the whole organisation does.

- Intellectually curious and able to ‘follow your nose' to find, and solve, problems
- Able to think critically, analyse evidence and information and develop clear, well-reasoned advice
- Good at communicating complex information orally, written and visually
- A self-starter who is confident delivering high quality work with minimal supervision
- Comfortable dealing with ambiguity
Skills and experience required:
- Experience working across a range of regulatory systems
- Demonstrated ability to build new frameworks, systems and processes
- Experienced in reviewing and consolidating information from a range of experts, writing coherent reports, and problem solving to come up with recommendations.
- Strong collaborative skills and ability to maintain good working relationships when testing and challenging others

The teams within the Regulatory Stewardship branch work closely together. 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 purpose of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is to Grow New Zealand for All. Our goal is to create a strong and high-performing economy by creating an environment that supports businesses to become more productive and internationally competitive.
