In addition, there will be an important responsibility to ensure that people within the business are grown to perform at their optimum, through the establishment of a strong organisational wide HR strategy.
The person will deputise for the CE as required, but importantly will help to proactively screen a lot of the “noise” and unnecessary distractions away from the CE, to enable them to focus of the key strategic priorities for the organisation. You will need to have strong EQ and good judgement, along with the ability to assert yourself as needed.
To be successful in this role, you will need to be an experienced senior business manager who has demonstrated the ability to operate effectively and comfortably at a senior leadership level. A strong financial lens and associated analytical skills are essential, as is a proven history of having strong relationship management and excellent communication skills. You must be self-confident and have good problem solving capabilities. Knowledge of Ngāi te Rangi iwi, hapu and marae, and fluency in Te Reo is desirable, but not essential.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity to help to lead an iwi organisation that has significant potential for growth and to influence its development.
