Ngai Te Rangi iwi is the largest one of three Tauranga Moana iwi, and the organisation is made of two entities, that of Te Runanga O Ngāi te Rangi Iwi Trust (TRONIT) and Ngāi te Rangi Settlement Trust (NST). TRONIT is responsible for the delivery of social, health, education, environmental and cultural services to meet the needs of its people, using funds derived from contracts, whilst NST has a focus on settlements and managing a large commercial property portfolio.
This new role has been created to provide direct support to the Chief Executive (CE) in the delivery of organisational business strategies. It will a require a strong commercial and financial focus on all business activities, to ensure that these are delivered in accordance with agreed contract requirements. 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.

A collective redress deed for Pare Hauraki, a collective of 12 iwi, was signed at Parliament in August 2018, which followed a series of public protests - including two to Parliament - led by Ngāi Te Rangi.
In December, a Treaty of Waitangi Tribunal report slammed the Crown's handling of overlapping claims in the Pare Hauraki settlement, finding the Crown had not adhered to Treaty principles, used an "ad hoc, opaque and ever-changing pool of settlement practices", rushed the process at the expense of due process and created fresh grievances between iwi.
At the time, Treaty Negotiations Minister Andrew Little said he accepted the tribunal's criticisms of the Crown's practices and the Crown would seek to work with both Tauranga Moana and Pare Hauraki to arrange a tikanga-based process.
Tauranga Moana and Hauraki kaumātua are working towards mending the relationship between their iwi groups caused by the Crown's approach to Treaty negotiations.
But efforts to meet as part of the first steps towards improving relationships, have been put on hold for the second time due to Covid-19.
The conflicted relationship was provoked by the Crown's handling of the Pare Hauraki Treaty settlement and overlapping claims.
Originally planned for earlier this year, the tikanga-based hui between Kaumātua had to be postponed due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions and was rescheduled for August 19th.
However, to ensure the safety of iwi elders as more cases of coronavirus are recorded, it did not proceed for the second time.
A new meeting between the groups will be rescheduled when New Zealand goes back to Covid-19 alert level 1.
While a resolution of these longstanding issues is important the safety and well being of our elders must take priority.
