He angitūtanga: The opportunity
Eke Panuku Development Auckland is recruiting for a Māori Outcomes Coordinator. A successful candidate will act as an intermediary between our project leads and our mana whenua partners. We meet with mana whenua every week, which means the pace can be relentless, but it comes with a rich diversity of activities.

There is also, however, significant flexibility and support to become involved in any part of our work as an urban regeneration agency.

He kōrero mōu: About you
Eke Panuku is looking for a self-motivated and experienced administrator who cares about creating opportunities for our whānau Māori. It's critical that we can build and maintain our high-trust relationships with internal and external partners.

Often, supporting engagement between Māori and local government can be difficult, and you’ll have developed grit and mental resilience.

An appreciation of tikanga me reo Māori is preferable but not essential. 

Ngā āhuatanga kei a mātou: What we offer
Eke Panuku, as an urban regeneration organisation, is planning, building, and delivering the biggest Māori city in the world. People are our most important asset, and we invest in their development and growth.

Our name has a long whakapapa. Eke Panuku is derived from the whakataukī (proverb) Eke Panuku, Eke Tangaroa!, which acknowledges the unseen energies of the land and sea. In te ao Māori, Māori mihi to Tangaroa (Atua of the sea) to inspire success, excellence, and progress. We have a role in supporting mana whenua as the kaitiaki [guardians] of Tāmaki Makaurau.
