Careers at the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI)

Why work in Policy and Trade at MPI?

MPI partners with Aotearoa New Zealand’s food and fibre sector to be the world’s most sustainable provider of high-value food and primary products. We’re passionate about growing prosperity in the sector while ensuring respect for Kaitiaki – guardianship of our natural resources.

In joining our Policy and Trade branch, you’ll be building world-leading regulatory systems and working with our primary sectors, Treaty partners, and other ministries to enable and support the productivity and sustainability of New Zealand’s primary industries, both here and in markets around the world.

Contribute to real issues, with real outcomes

Great policy advice is the foundation of effective government decision-making. It underpins the performance of the economy and the wellbeing of all people in Aotearoa New Zealand. Joining the Policy and Trade at MPI will see you tackling some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s biggest issues.

With MPI, you’ll be able to further develop your policy craft and your analytical and critical thinking skills to give robust policy advice on areas that matter to all New Zealanders - such as the safety of our food, agriculture’s impact on climate change, as well as animal welfare, biosecurity, rural communities, fisheries, and much more.     

Work with the best

To deliver our work, MPI’s Policy and Trade branch has assembled a diverse and highly-skilled team incorporating policy professionals, strategic thinkers, economic data analysts, technical market access specialists and international policy practitioners.

Our team boasts an enviable set of skills and experience, ensuring that it’s not only the work that will keep you challenged, engaged and learning every day. The breadth of our work also means that whatever your background - be it economics, sciences or humanities - there is room for you to contribute and forge a rewarding and successful career.
