Ko Taupae Pia hei painga mō tātou tahi nei

Taupae Pia refers to the ridge or hill from where a student can look out and scan. 

At Te Tumu Paeroa we’re committed to helping Māori achieve tino rangatiratanga over whenua Māori and Taupae Pia is designed to provide you with opportunities to gain rich experience and knowledge that will ensure the protection of whenua as taonga tuku iho.

  • Governance
  • Trust administration
  • Land-based enterprises
  • Project management
  • and much more…

You will be based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara but you will have the chance to walk the whenua with owners and understand the journey to tino rangatiratanga. 

We’re seeking graduates with a range of skills to help support us on our journey and who reflect our values of tōtika, kotahitanga, manaakitanga, and mana.

Throughout your 12 months with us, you will be guided by our Pou Tikanga – Te Hāmua Nikora. He is grounded in tikanga and will awhi you to be the best you can be. 

You will be guided through a rotation of areas that will include a mix of on-the-job learning – in general and specialised areas. 

Salary is $45,000 - $50,000 per annum.
