It’s a time of change at the Ministry of Transport.

Following in-depth consultation both internally  and with key transport partners we have landed a fresh new design and vision to help shape New Zealand’s future.  Transport impacts everyone and MoT is the policy engine room, advising how transport can better the lives of New Zealanders, whether that is enabling driverless cars, contributing to urban and regional development, or contributing to tourism earnings. We are looking to combine our key strengths with new talent to adapt to our environment that is complex and changing at pace!

To really get transport working the way New Zealanders need it to, we know that extensive collaboration will be the key – collaboration with our staff internally, and collaboration with our external transport partners. A small Ministry like ours gives you plenty of opportunity to gain experience and help shape the future.

There’s really no better time to join the Ministry, as we enter a whole new era of transport possibilities. From Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, to driverless cars and electric vehicles, the Ministry is at the forefront, enabling New Zealanders to enjoy new developments, and the environmental, economic and social benefits they bring.

It’s an exciting time for us, and you could be part of it. At the Ministry of Transport, you’ll make a real contribution to shaping how New Zealanders connect with each other and the world.

Adviser - Business Integrity & Performance


Permanent – Full time

This is an exciting time to be a part of Ministry of Transport.  We are building a new Business Integrity and Performance Team and this is your opportunity to be part of it. You will support the performance of the Ministry; working with members in this team to help deliver a range of business functions such as planning, risk, business continuity, security, project management and procurement.

With a few years’ generalist experience across a breadth of business performance and accountability functions, you will be collaborative by nature and great at understanding the big picture.  Whilst you need to see the big picture, you’ll also need to have a sharp eye for detail and the ability to see patterns in order to understand and deliver on Ministry expectations. A flair for presenting information, and/or for numbers wouldn’t go amiss.

Variety is on offer as you will be involved in all aspects of the functions of the team from providing advice and training to staff on the use of best practice programme and project management methodology, risk and assurance through to procurement and participating in internal planning and reporting. We work closely with teams across all parts of the Ministry, so you’ll get to know all aspects of our business.

This is a great opportunity to join New Zealand’s principal policy agency that has an impact on all things transport. So if you’re curious by nature, great at getting the best out of people, and looking for that next step in your career, then please apply today through our careers centre https://mot.careercentre.net.nz/Job/ including a cover letter and your full CV.
