  • Iwi and Maori will directly benefit from accurate iwi data

About the Role…


In this role you will help process the completed paper census forms with a focus on Iwi and Maori. 
We are looking for self-starting individuals who can work flexibly, handle pressure and be decisive. 


Day to day, this role involves:

About Census…


The census is the official count of how many people and dwellings there are in New Zealand. By asking everyone to complete a set of questions about themselves and their households we capture a snapshot of who is living in and visiting New Zealand. Census information is used by central government, councils, community groups, iwi, and business to make informed decisions and plan for the future.


About You…


While training and support will be provided, we are looking for individuals capable of learning on the fly, who are proactive and energetic and consistently deliver results beyond expectations.

As an Iwi Specialist Manual Operator, you must:

  • Value the importance of providing accurate iwi data
  • Hold relevant tertiary level qualification or equivalent matauranga Maori on Maori World structures
  • Have a positive, ‘can do’ attitude
  • Communicate effectively and work as part of the team
  • Have good technical / IT skills; you are naturally curious about how systems work
  • Process data / information in a timely manner, meeting quality standards
  • Ensure any census information you hear, see, or carry is kept confidential and respondent privacy is protected
  • Contribute to continuous improvement.

All successful candidates must have New Zealand Citizenship or Permanent Residency or a valid Work Permit.
