Te āhuatunga a te tūranga/About the Role
We are looking for people as passionate about data as we are. In Sector Insights, we are united in a common goal of using data to drive insights to inform decision making by justice sector leaders. We support justice agencies to work together to deliver ambitious results for a fair and safe Aotearoa.
Your role as a Senior Analyst or an Analyst is as a catalyst for change and improvement based on empirical data. Not just hunches or maybes, but well researched, robust data which tells a clear and engaging story.
You will use the data available to you to investigate a myriad of issues facing the justice sector, sometimes with a well-defined hypothesis beforehand, and sometimes to solely explore the data and see what jumps out.
Your natural curiosity and keen analytical skills will illuminate previously undiscovered issues and opportunities for growth; insights, that without this investigation, would remain hidden and the data meaningless. Your role is to communicate the same story, with the same data, across different areas of the business.
Now is an exciting time for you to become part of the Ministry of Justice in Sector Insights as the insights and advice we provide are highly sought after. Our work is characterised by innovation, quality, and impact, and we inform the direction of Justice agencies.

Mō te tīma/About our Team
At Te Tāhū o te Ture – the Ministry of Justice, we’re committed to working together for a fair and safe Aotearoa.
Sector Insights is comprised of four teams – Sector Analysis and Modelling; Research and Evaluation; and two Analytics and Insights teams, Courts and Tribunals and Justice Services.
We work collaboratively, turning data into insight to support the delivery of better services and outcomes to people engaging with the Justice system. We achieve this by helping our partners answer three critical questions: What’s happening? Why is it happening? and What would happen if?
This allows the Ministry’s operational leaders to focus their front-line improvement efforts on the areas that will make the biggest difference to New Zealanders.
Our work is challenging and complex. Our goals are ambitious. We make a real difference to the New Zealand Justice system. Our teams are sharp-minded, curious and influential. We have inspirational leaders who support, challenge and actively promote career development. Work-life balance is a priority for us, and everyone is encouraged to support their wellbeing. We offer a dynamic and social environment, a place you can be yourself.
Joining the Ministry of Justice means you will become part of an inclusive organisation that values you and the communities we serve. It’s our promise to ensure our workplace is one where our people feel healthy and safe, supported and able to be themselves at work. We value respect as the foundation for building a positive workplace culture and one where diversity is welcomed and celebrated.
