Te arataki i te Ratonga TūmatanuiLeading the Public Service

The challenges and opportunities facing the Public Service require a strong and diverse group of leaders who have the skills to operate across a range of roles and contexts. Strong system-focused leadership is needed to improve outcomes for all New Zealanders. We are future-proofing the New Zealand Public Service, helping reaffirm and preserve the key elements that have helped win its strong international reputation for integrity, effectiveness and responsiveness.

The Public Service Commissioner works with Public Service chief executives to set and implement the Leadership Strategy for the Public Service. This strategy enables system-focused leadership across the Public Service and the development of senior leadership and management capability, with a broad range of skills and experiences, to address systemic challenges and serve New Zealanders.

This Leadership Strategy is currently under development. For more information, contact leadershipandtalent@publicservice.govt.nz
