Do you have a spirit of service? Do you want to influence and drive positive change for the benefit of people and communities across Aotearoa New Zealand?

The Ethnic Communities Graduate Programme provides a meaningful first employment opportunity in the public service for skilled graduates from ethnic communities. It directly addresses the low representation of ethnically diverse employees and the barriers they face to access employment in the public sector. It does this by offering a targeted pathway into the public service, with the added benefit of improving its representativeness and broadening its cultural competency.

Your role will be focused on either public policy, policy-related functions, or the delivery of high-quality and efficient public services. e.g. data & research, corporate services etc.

As a graduate in this programme, you will be placed with a participating public service agency for 18 months. You will contribute towards the agency's important mahi, learn from public service professionals, and receive wrap-around support that will set you up to pursue an impactful career in the public sector.

We are looking for graduates to participate in the first two intakes of this programme due to start in July 2021 and January 2022. We invite you to apply to participate in any of the two intakes.

We anticipate that the positions will be mainly Wellington-based, with some positions located in Auckland and Christchurch.

We welcome graduates who:

  • Identify their ethnicity as Middle Eastern, Latin American, African, Asian, or Continental European;
  • have obtained a qualification at the bachelor's level in NZ or overseas within the last 2 years;
  • have the right to live and work in New Zealand; and
  • are looking for their first employment opportunity in the public service.

To be successful in this programme you will:

  • Have skills in problem solving, communicating, and building and maintaining strong professional relationships;
  • be a team worker;
  • be action-oriented;
  • strive for excellence; and
  • demonstrate the functional and technical skills required for the job.

If you want a job where the work you do matters to New Zealand, there is a rewarding career waiting for you in the public service. Bring your whole self to this programme and contribute to challenging, fast-paced work that will make a difference to the lives of New Zealanders.

We work to make New Zealand better for New Zealanders through our four outcome areas:

  • People can easily access the services and information they need
  • Iwi, hapū and communities across New Zealand are safe, resilient and thriving
  • People's sense of belonging and collective memory builds an inclusive New Zealand
  • New Zealand is a well-functioning democracy across central and local government
