Vacancies

Revitalisation of te reo Māori is at the heart of what we do here at Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.  Our mission is to give effect to the status of te reo Māori as an official language, to promote te reo Māori as an ordinary means of communication and as a living language, and to lead the coordination of the implementation of Te Maihi Karauna (Crown Māori Language Strategy).

We aim to create an environment where iwi and Māori through Te Maihi Māori can succeed and where the State Sector, private sector and wider community organisations are enabled to help revitalise te reo Māori.  We want all New Zealanders to value the Māori language as part of who we are, what makes us a nation and is a living language for everyone to enjoy and celebrate – everywhere, every way, everyone and every day.

We are looking for people with the strategic drive and passion for te reo Māori to come join us in shaping the culture of our nation by leading the implementation of the Government’s Māori Language Strategy, Te Maihi Karauna.
