Kōrero mō te tūranga - About the Role
The diverse nature of MPI keeps the work varied and interesting. The Cost Recovery Directorate works across all MPI branches and legislation to ensure the cost recovery regulations remain accurate and fit for purpose.

- Help the team drive the Cost Recovery directorate's work programme, contributing to its core policy work streams and annual review processes
- Establish and maintain strong working relationships across a variety of internal and external stakeholders
- Build and deliver priority cost recovery workstreams for MPI
- Develop cost-effective policy options for Government action related to the primary sector
- Provide coaching, mentoring support, and advice to analysts
