Te Kaiwhakatere | The Navigator

This newly created role will provide you with broad scope, enabling you to influence significant development and change. The role will be complex, challenging yet incredibly rewarding. You also will not be alone, with this role being one of five Te Kaiwhakatere roles within the larger Te Ahi Tūtata business across Aotearoa. Together you will work in the kaupapa Māori infused service delivery team in Beca.

You will be primarily focussed on bridging the gap between Te Ao Māori and Te Ao Pākeha in the delivery of projects to our clients. Your main focus in the role will be helping to guide Beca project teams in embedding Te Ao Māori in many forms and expression into daily project delivery, noting this role will be broad in the type, scale, industries and client projects that you will have scope to work across. You will be working with a whole host of Maōri across the region, including Government, Mana Whenua relationship managers, strategic partnership Managers as well as Marae executives, Mana Whenua members and Tribal Authorities in this region to deliver projects within a Treaty partnership context.

This is a senior level role requiring credibility, influence, relationship building and experience across project delivery, ideally in the professional services or related sectors.

Mōu ake I About you

You will be a strategic leader, with broad experience and skills in understanding the relationships and partnership framework within Te Tiriti o Waitangi. You will enjoy being at the face of projects and with clients, with the ability to build credible and mutually beneficial relationships. Your project experience will be underpinned by a well-developed sense of being Māori and bringing Te Ao Māori to projects.

You will have an intimate knowledge of mana whenua in the Wellington and surrounding rohe and a well-developed understanding of contemporary application of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, including the Crown's approach to partnership with iwi Māori. A growing and developing journey in connecting to culture through Te Reo would be hugely welcomed.

As a newly created role, we invite applicants with a broad range of experiences regardless of what technical background you bring, with scope in the role to enable you to bring your experience and understanding of project delivery in professional services whilst extending this into a Te Ao Māori view. You will have the remit to shape this role, bringing your influence and constructive challenges to new ways of working and walking in two worlds in project delivery and taking existing well-established practices forward into an integrated Te Ao Māori based approach.

Our Māori Business Strategy

Beca has been working in partnership with Iwi Māori and our Crown and private sector clients over many years. To further support our continued growth, we have formed Te Ahi Tūtata to draw a sharper focus to our mahi. Te Ahi Tūtata is our Māori business that delivers our strategy and purpose. You will be part of delivering this strategy to raise competency, deliver projects to clients and embedding a Māori world view in Beca. You will be part of the team that is at the forefront of shaping Kaupapa Māori infused services to our clients as we move forward into the next 100 years at Beca.

Te Ahi Tūtata includes these three Pou Whakaaro:

1) Mohiotanga: This element is focussed on raising the skills, competence and knowledge of Te Ao Māori into everything we do.

2) Manaakitanga: Bringing your full self as Māori in to Beca and in to your roles. Your whanau, your whenua, your way of being Māori has a place in Beca to be that person.

3) Whanaungatanga: Externally the business leads out a kaupapa Māori approach to project delivery to our clients and our communities.

    Architecture is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements. The term architecture is also used metaphorically to refer to the design of organizations, software, and other abstract concepts. Construction is the process of constructing a building or infrastructure. Construction differs from manufacturing in that manufacturing typically involves mass production of similar items without a designated purchaser, while construction typically takes place on location for a known client. Construction as an industry comprises six to nine percent of the gross domestic product of developed countries. Construction starts with planning, design, and financing; and continues until the project is built and ready for use.
