Recruitment for Māori Impact roles

07 October 2020

We are recruiting a team to build ESR’s pathway to increased engagement with Māori communities. If you are passionate about strengthening Māori engagement through science and research, we invite you to join us on our journey to create greater impact for Māori.

We want to see impact for Māori through Māori engagement as an integral part of our ESR identity. To help us achieve this vision, we’re building a team to deliver Māori-led, mātauranga-based, science supported solutions, advice and expertise. Māori will take the lead on what they want to achieve, and ESR will follow, setting a path towards a future where more of Aotearoa’s science and research is facilitated by Māori, for Māori. This will harness the ingenuity of Mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) and solve problems that strengthen Aotearoa’s health, safety and wellbeing.

To build our team, we’re looking for a Māori Impact Coordinator, a Māori Impact Project Manager, a Communications and Engagement Lead, and a Kaiputaiao Social Scientist to join us. If you are passionate about engaging with Māori communities and eager to participate in an ambitious transformation project, get in touch with us today.

We recognise that this a journey. ESR has delivered some very successful science outcomes with Māori. Let’s do more together.

Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te iwi. With your basket and my basket the people will live.
