Expressions of Interest - Leadership

Applications have now closed for impact-oriented individuals with a strategic focus to join the Challenge’s Science Leadership Group (SLG).

In November 2018, investment was confirmed for a second five-year term for BioHeritage – Tranche 2: 2019–2024. Expressions of Interest (EoI) were sought in December 2018 to find individuals with relevant expertise to help our leadership team plan and prioritise Tranche 2 investment.  

SLG is currently assessing the EoIs received, with individuals to be notified of the outcome by 8 February 2019.

Positions are available for three or more individuals as the Challenge enters this implementation phase of its 2019–2024 Strategy

Successful applicants may be given the opportunity to continue in Challenge leadership roles into Tranche 2. We will also consider co-funding positions with other organisations and/or secondment arrangements.

The Challenge is looking for people who have a strategic focus on delivering outcomes for the benefit of Aotearoa New Zealand. Applicants must be enthusiastic about the Challenge’s values and familiar with our Strategy.

If you are successful, you’ll be expected to work closely with other members of the SLG, and with the Challenge’s Governance GroupKāhui Māori and Knowledge Brokers to influence investment across a wide range of organisations.

This EOI process is different from another that’s running concurrently, where we are seeking individuals to join Stage One scoping and design groups.

Key Dates

  • EoI applications close – 5pm, 19 December 2018
  • Individuals notified of outcome – by 8 February 2019
