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.

Human Resources Senior Adviser - Transition


Fixed term – 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.

We are looking to combine our key strengths with new talent to adapt to our environment that is complex and changing at pace! To do this the Ministry needs to build great people capability. Have we caught your attention yet?

This is a great opportunity for a senior HR professional who is experienced in project management and has good relationship-building skills, to be part of a newly-formed Corporate Services Group.  You will work closely with the Manager HR to develop and lead organisational wide L&D and OD initiatives, and provide recruitment advice and support to the Ministry and its Managers to embed the outcomes from a recent Organisational Review.

This role is hands on and there’s a lot to achieve in a short time frame. You will therefore be results focussed and ready to roll up your sleeves and make a positive difference.

The person we are seeking will make a significant contribution towards the Ministry’s success in achieving its strategic objectives. If you are at the top of your game and looking for that next challenge then we would like to hear from you.
