Summary of the position

On behalf of the Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, the Ministry is seeking candidates who wish to be considered for appointment as an associate member of the Commerce Commission.

The Ministry is looking for candidates with a skillset suitable for either market studies or consumer protection work, as well as being able to contribute to the Commission’s other functions, depending on the candidate’s skills and preferences. Ideally, candidates will have analytical skills and experience in commerce, economics, law, public administration or consumer affairs.
