Niche is partnering up with Te Puna Aonui to find three exceptional policy professionals to be a part of a multidisciplinary policy and practice team. It is formed to improve the whole-of-government approach to family Violence and sexual violence.
Last year Te Puna Aonui launched Te Aorerekura: The National Strategy to Eliminate Family Violence and Sexual Violence. These positions are responsible for providing policy advice and leadership on significant workstreams that will help Te Puna Aonui achieve transformative change to eliminate family violence and sexual violence, especially through working in partnerships across the family violence and sexual violence sector and with our Joint Venture and broader government agency colleagues.
Mō te tīma/About our Team
Te Puna Aonui was previously known as Joint Venture Business Unit. In 2022, it became Te Puna Aonui, an Interdepartmental Executive Board reporting directly to the Minister for the Prevention of Family and Sexual Violence. It operates with a system-wide view and is a single point of accountability that enables government agencies to work in a collective way on family violence and sexual violence. It leads with influence and collaboration to provide space, focus and momentum for government, Māori, communities, NGOs and private organisations to work together.
Te āhuatunga a te tūranga/About the Role
There are one Principal Advisor and two Senior Advisor positions (one is a 12-month fixed term role). The Principal and Senior Advisor will ensure that advice is evidence based and best practice, grounded in the diverse and collective views of Joint Venture agencies, and brings in the voice of citizens.

A key part of this is developing a monitoring, accountability, learning and improving system. This requires helping us shape the key components of the system, how they connect, how we manage data, how we treat what people tell us as taonga and how we use a range of data to improve the family violence and sexual violence system. The principal will be responsible for the thought leadership as to how we implement as a joint venture and how we use the different levers available to us. This is an exciting new role, in an exciting new space that looks to ensure the changes heralded in Te Aorerekura are realised.
Budget and Investment Plan (Senior Advisor):
The Budget and Investment Plan team plays a pivotal role in supporting the long-term strategic and funding approach to delivering on Te Aorerekura. The work is diverse and challenging, with exciting opportunities to lead, shape, and collaborate. There are challenging policy, thought leadership, and engagement opportunities across our multi-agency Budget process, and to develop a new strategic approach to investing, across government, with tangata whenua, and through communities, in change to eliminate family violence and sexual violence over a generation. A big part of Te Aorerekura is how we engage and value communities to prevent and respond to violence. Over the past two years we have worked more closely with communities and the specialist sectors on system change. This role works across a range of communities and the specialist sectors to ensure their voices are part of the learning and monitoring system, and that they are involved in the work we do that matters to them.

    A government is the system or group of people governing an organized community, usually a state. In the Commonwealth of Nations, the word "government" is also used more narrowly to refer to the collective group of people that exercises executive authority in a state. This usage is analogous to what is called an "administration" in American English. Furthermore, especially in American English, the concepts of "the state" and "the government" may be used synonymously to refer to the person or group of people exercising authority over a politically organized territory. Finally, government is also sometimes used in English as a synonym for governance. In the case of its broad associative definition, government normally consists of legislators, administrators, and arbitrators. Government is the means by which state policy is enforced, as well as the mechanism for determining the policy of the state. A form of government, or form of state governance, refers to the set of political systems and institutions that make up the organisation of a specific government.
