Our people

We are proud to have world-leading people in our organisation who are based in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch, allowing us to collaborate across Aotearoa.

Te Waihanga currently has 31 full-time-equivalent permanent and fixed-term people. We have also added a policy function to the Chief Executive’s Office to meet the growing demand for our knowledge and expertise and our role as the Government’s primary advisor on infrastructure policy matters.

People profile:

  • Male 56%
  • Female 44%

Executive level:

  • Male 60%
  • Female 40%

Te Waihanga values working with its people to create a good environment. We have appointed a permanent Human Resources Manager to replace a temporary role that has existed since our formation. This new role has begun work on implementing a People Strategy, with a strong focus on staff engagement and development and supporting diversity, inclusion and cultural competency.
