Established in 2013, Te Korowai o Ngāruahine Trust is the post-settlement governance entity for Ngāruahine lwi in South Taranaki. We have a big agenda to grow our assets and distribute the wealth to improve the lives of ngā uri o Ngāruahine. Our strategic vision ‘Ka Ora Taku Toa’ guides our plan which is framed around four strategic pou: Tupua te Mauri (Taiao/Environment), Pou Te Pātūtū (Kāinga/Housing), Te Kawa Whanakeora (Mahi/Education-Training-Employment), and our foundational pou, Ngāruahinetanga (Cultural and Identity).
As Tumu Whakarae / Chief Executive you will provide strategic management and leadership across the organisation. You will work closely with the Trust Board and a small management staff to champion our values including our hapū centric approach. Working collaboratively, you will develop and execute an annual operational plan, and ensure we have a high performing, achievement focused organisation.
As the successful candidate you will have proven experience in an executive management role with responsibility for people leadership, strategy development and implementation, budgeting and financial management, communications, whānau-hapū-Iwi partnerships, advocacy, and other support services. You will have lived experience in Te Ao Māori including an in-depth knowledge and understanding of whānau-hapū-Iwi structures and systems, have worked in a iwi/hapū or kaupapa Māori setting, and be a confident (or aspiring) speaker of te reo.
A natural relationship builder with good business logic, you will bring strong advocacy skills and the ability to influence decision-making at the highest levels across local, regional and national levels. You are known for your entrepreneurial spirit and have the ability to seek out and optimize funding and opportunities that align with the Trust’s 5 year Strategic Plan. Most importantly, you will have a genuine commitment to our kaupapa, and to delivering positive outcomes for ngā uri o Ngāruahine.
You can expect to work with positive and inspired trustees, flexible working conditions and to do work on legacy projects that will make a difference to whanau-hapū-Iwi and their surrounding communities for generations to come.
