DCE Strategy and Investment


Permanent – Full time

"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 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, collaboration will be the key – collaboration across all aspects of the Ministry, and collaboration with an extensive array of external transport partners". Peter Mersi, Chief Executive, Ministry of Transport

While all the DCEs will have collective responsibility for the development and delivery of strategy, this role might be described as being at the heart of that capability, maintaining the overview of transport strategy for New Zealand and driving/supporting the Ministry to achieve its strategic objectives.

Aligned to this is ensuring the delivery of quality, timely and effective medium and long-term policy advice for the Ministry and the sector. Understanding transport as an integrated system will naturally lead to your engagement and influence across government forums.

You will be directly responsible for the Demand Management, Strategic Policy & Innovation, Investment, Urban Development & Environment, and Rail & Freight Teams.

While we undoubtedly seek superior capability in each DCE, it is absolutely imperative that you have a philosophy of organisational contribution and impact, not just a focus on your own area of responsibility. Further, a critical competency of all those appointed will be their ability to engage with and build “empowerment” at all levels, having all staff want to take responsibility and “make things happen”.
