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.
