Careers at NZTE

Clare Wilson – NZTE regional director, Asia

Manaaki is us.

We believe New Zealand is good for the world. We are a country built on ingenuity, poised to disrupt big paradigms from the edge of the world. We are a country charged with the guardianship of our environment, for the future, on behalf of those who came before us.

But we are also a country that cannot prosper by simply selling to itself. With commodities still at our core, we must seek more ways to diversify, to enhance the value of our goods and services globally, and to attract smart investments that are good for New Zealand.

That's why we're here at NZTE: to be part of something that's bigger than ourselves. By supporting New Zealand businesses, we boost New Zealand's economy, elevate the national reputation and help foster important connections.

Working at NZTE can also boost your own international growth, as opportunities to make a difference in offshore markets come up often.
