MPI, is a large org that has amalgamated with 2 other ministrys/govt departments
The total org is made of up
This makes for a ministry that was forced to eat everything up to consolidate and reduce govt spend on groups such as finance etc - however it also grew a lot more red tape. Now MPI is going on another round of dieting, to hopefully be sustainable.
Why is MPI reactive, because of its responsibility - any issue from capture, harvest - plate has an implication on MPI.
MPI, Is a great place to work - the people make it, some of the smartest people I have ever meet have worked here and still do.
MPI is a driving force or a closed gate for our industries, Milk rains supreme sometimes, Bees the next - it changes with the seasons.
Engagement with its stakeholders is key - relationship building is paramount.
Overall, a hugely enjoyable place to work - plenty of opportunities if you are actively looking and so many industries to help make an impact with.
