Our people

Find out about the careers.govt.nz website leadership team and staff.

At the Tertiary Education Commission (the TEC) we have around 350 staff. They come from many different backgrounds and have a variety of professional and technical skills. They provide information and advice to tertiary education organisations (TEOs) and the Government, careers services from education through to employment, and foster and maintain effective relationships..

We have investment managers, data and business analysts, information architects, project managers, developers, customer service representatives, helpdesk analysts, accountants, executive and personal assistants, administrators, and advisors – to name just some of our roles.

Getting the right people and building partnerships

We’re creating a culture where we can all thrive and do our best work to support TEOs. This includes an ongoing commitment to help us get the right people, build the capability of our people and support their development.

We also want to make sure it’s easy for you to work with us. We’re continually looking at how we can improve the way we collaborate with our customers, to build and maintain effective business partnerships.
