Do you want to help lead a lift in the relationship with New Zealand's closest partner in Asia and a Top 10 trading partner?

A new Policy Adviser role has been created at the New Zealand High Commission in Singapore to provide high quality policy advice and support to the small MFAT team in South East Asia's wealthiest and most advanced country.

Applicants must be New Zealand citizens with significant experience in foreign policy and/or defence security issues, preferably from working in Government.

This is a two-year fixed term local staff position available from early 2017.
