One of the best NZ Ministry's to work at. Busy and at the forefront of NZ Government thinking.

They cover the most diverse set of work-streams of any Ministry and have plenty of scope to keeping you very busy and occupied.

Very busy and it's hard to catch up. It's hard to understand the goals and organisation objectives.

Set up too many priories at one time and too many projects and not follow through.


it's not a friend and family workplace culture.


I enjoyed my work and the tasks that I perform every day.
Cons
long hours

Data input and update each clients personal details. Added new companies to the register and help them to set up companies online. Take inbound calls to assist with online application. I have learned to be more quick and efficient. The hardest part was the amount of calls that were waiting. I worked with a good team which were full of support and had great ideas to help make the job stress free.
Pros
Good hours and good pay
Cons
in patient clients

Working for MBIE was the best choice I could have ever made. They provide you with support and development opportunities and are committed to seeing you succeed. The organisations culture is collaborative and the skillset held within the industry is incredibly varied.

My role was to answer phone calls and answer emails to support electrical workers renewing their licences.

How to adapt to a new environment quickly, pick up new systems on the spot and to be able to listen and advise a range of different people via verbal and non verbal systems.


I had a team leader who was very supportive and senior members who were always willing to bounce information through.


The work place culture has enabled me to leave with life long friendships after a very short time. Great people to work with.


Hardest part was learning new I formation on the spot and being able to deliver this to clients.


Best part was the people.
Pros
Dress up days
Cons
Temp role

As an employer, primarily concerned with "correct Processes" instead of helping clients/customers or caring for employees. No consideration paid to effort, skill, or knowledge. Fellow employees were awesome, and employee culture is amazing. Hardest part of the job is inability to help clients due to the extreme disconnection between MBIE offices and bureaucracy. The benefits were pretty good though.
