Analyst - Māori Outcomes

Synergia Ltd

  • Full Time

“With your food basket and my food basket the people will thrive.” 

Naumai haere mai,

We are looking for a future that includes you, your whānau and what reflects your vision for your mokopuna in Aotearoa.  What does that look like? Is tikanga and te reo Māori the norm? Do Māori have access to Kaupapa Māori solutions determined by their own social and cultural pathway?  Are inequities a thing of the past in our systems and is tino rangatiratanga enabled and achieved?
