About us
At Tatauranga Aotearoa, Stats NZ, our vision is to unleash the power of data to change lives. As New Zealand’s official data and statistics agency, we are tasked with leading the way for New Zealand’s data future, enabling data-led innovation across society, the economy, and the environment.
The opportunity
The 2023 Census journey has begun. This is a mega-project that we manage as a programme, which is already established. We are looking for a highly skilled Programme Manager to ramp up and drive its successful delivery. This is a high-profile programme of work which requires a track record of delivering prominent projects of national significance.

Your areas of accountability will include:
Managing the programme on a day to day basis – driving the work forward while holding people to account for delivery.
Operationalising the 2023 Census strategy
Delivering the programme in accordance with the approved census design
