The Office for Māori Crown Relations – Te Arawhiti is dedicated to fostering strong, ongoing and effective relationships with Māori across Government. Our name symbolises the bridge between Māori and the Crown, the past and the future, and the journey from grievance to partnership.
Te Arawhiti’s kaupapa is to make the Crown a better Treaty partner – to re-set, sustain, and build the Māori Crown relationship towards true Treaty partnership.
This is an exciting time for the Te Arawhiti legal team. We are looking for two senior solicitors to join a team with a fresh focus on supporting the Maori Crown relationship and the work of Te Arawhiti. The work is varied and interesting, encompassing Treaty settlements, post-settlement issues, investigation of customary rights under the Takutai Moana Act 2011, support for Treaty litigation and Tribunal processes, administrative law and general in-house counsel.
The successful candidates will be collaborative and flexible, relishing the opportunity to work at the forefront of Māori Crown relations. Experience in Treaty law and a sound understanding of Māori Crown relationship will be valuable. But significant legal experience in other relevant areas will also be considered. You must have vigour, drive, and an ability to bring people on a journey. An ability to consider broader strategic issues and perspectives to complement well researched, legally accurate and clearly communicated legal advice will be crucial. You will need to hold or be eligible to hold an annual practising certificate issued by the New Zealand Law Society, have a Bachelor of Laws (or equivalent) and a sound understanding of the constitutional principles and legal processes that underpin the New Zealand justice system.
