Te para i te huarahi hei whakakotahi i te Ratonga Tūmatanui Leading the way for a unified Public Service

The importance of investing in Public Service senior leadership has been recognised in legislation. It was a requirement under the State Sector Act 1988 and continues today in the Public Service Act 2020.  Strong, unified Public Service leadership is at the heart of delivering effectively for the Government of the day and, ultimately, delivering better outcomes and services for New Zealanders. 

Te Rautaki Ārahi i te Ratonga Tūmatanui o Aotearoa | The Leadership Strategy for New Zealand’s Public Service reinforces our direction for what Public Service leaders need to be and sets out a plan for how to get there.  It outlines a vision for building a responsive, inclusive, and unified team of leaders that collectively steward public services across agency and sector boundaries. 

Implementation of the Leadership Strategy is led by the Public Service Commissioner and the chief executives in Te Ohu Tumu Whakarae i te Ratonga Tūmatanui | Public Service Leadership Team.
