Opportunities at Ministry of Justice

One team, one purpose - this defines the way people work at the Ministry of Justice - many people working as one team to deliver first class justice services. It is truly rewarding to know that every day you could make a genuine difference to the safety of the New Zealand community, and the fairness and credibility of the New Zealand justice system. It doesn't matter where in the country you are, whether you're new to the workforce, or looking for the next step in your career, you will find a future working for justice that will challenge you.

  • As well as a great team environment, the Ministry of Justice's wide range of roles and teams means that their people enjoy opportunities to gain a variety of skills and experiences while developing their careers.
  • As the Ministry leads the justice sector, there is also the opportunity to work with the other sector agencies. The New Zealand Police, the Department of Corrections, the Ministry of Social Development, Crown Law Office, and the Serious Fraud Office are all agencies we work with closely to achieve the outcome of a safe and just society for New Zealand.

If you are passionate about making a difference for New Zealanders and want to work for an organisation which values excellence and service and approaches customers and each other with integrity and respect, come and join the Ministry working for justice.
