The National Assessments Bureau is mostly made up of analysts – who are responsible for producing assessments – along with a number of specialist roles. Analysts typically cover geographic issues, for example specific countries or regions, or topics such as science, the environment, and terrorism.
Our staff come from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds and have different experience levels. These range from specialists to generalists, and career public servants to recent graduates who have studied multiple disciplines such as international relations/political studies, sciences, economics, law, history, literature, languages, geography, gender studies, development studies, philosophy, psychology and criminology.
Having a diverse and inclusive workforce is central to our success; it helps us do better work for the government and people of New Zealand, and to attract and retain talented employees.
