Meet our people
Our people are motivated to make a difference for New Zealand. Read what some of our people have to say about building their career at MBIE.
I really enjoyed studying at university. The whole environment was great. Fun people, enjoyable classes, and a whole new insight into global perspectives really changed my outlook on life.
I joined MBIE in November 2013, shortly after completing a PhD in marine biology and genetics. Although this wasn’t the scientist career path I originally envisaged for myself, I was fortunate that the Science Investments Branch had an opening that required expertise in the seafood sector.
I commenced my role in the Contact Centre at the then Department of Building and Housing in November 2007 as an Advisor, providing advice to landlords and tenants about tenancy bonds lodged with the Bond Centre.
