Mō mātou | About Us
Toi Mai is the Workforce Development Council (WDC) that represents the creative, cultural, recreation and technology sectors. We are an important part of the new vocational education system, ensuring industry has a stronger voice in making Aotearoa’s workforce fit for today, and for the future. We play a lead role in ensuring learners develop the skills they need to be ready for the world of work. While we don’t arrange training, we provide skills leadership, set standards, and develop qualifications. We provide quality assurance and endorse programmes relevant to both learners and industry now, and for generations to come; and provide vocational education investment advice to TEC.
Te Tiriti o Waitangi is a key consideration for our mahi and underpins our strategy and approach.
Mō tēnei tūranga mahi | About this role

Ko wai koe| About you
We are seeking to appoint board members who are leaders in our diverse industries, either from an employer or employee/union perspective. A commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi is essential, as is significant governance experience, excellent communication skills and a commitment to our kaupapa. Candidates with whakapapa Māori, and those who bring the perspectives of our priority learners (including Māori, Pacific and Disabled people) are of particular interest. Existing board members may choose to reapply.
