Finance Manager

There’s a good chance you haven’t heard of Te Waihanga. We’re small (but mighty) and haven’t been around long by government standards. But our job is as big as it gets, helping New Zealand get the right infrastructure, whether it’s transport connections that get us from a to b, water and power connections needed to support affordable homes, or schools and hospitals that support our communities.

All this is why we need you. We’re after a finance expert who can help us make sure we spend our money on the right things, and in the right way.

To do this, you’ll be a whizz at things like:

  • Keeping the books balanced.
  • Creating reports that keep our Board, Leadership team and budget managers up to date.
  • Help us buy the right things in the right way.
  • Lead and inspire a small team of experts.
  • Make sure we follow the rules, without us realising we are following the rules.

Mō te tīma / About our team

Te Waihanga is what’s called an Autonomous Crown Entity or, even better, an ACE. We think about the whole infrastructure system - roads, waterpipes, powerlines, you name it – and our job is to give advice and uncover the insights that can make it all work as well as it can, supporting an Aotearoa that’s great for the generations to come.

Our people are smart and passionate about this stuff. They’re friendly and, this being a relatively small organisation, it’s easy to work with anyone here and to have an impact. We don’t do hierarchy or stand on ceremony.

We also value our people, and it’s important to us that you feel welcome, supported, and respected.
