Represent our industry: Apply now for Workforce Development Council positions

TEC has announced it is now taking applications for the paid governance positions within the Workforce Development Councils, including Toi Mai, the WDC for the creative, cultural, recreation and technology sectors.

A very short timeframe has been provided for applications, so we want to make our members aware of this as early as possible.​​​​​​ ​Applications for these important board roles close on Friday 16 April 2021.


TEC is seeking to recruit diverse boards that include the following qualities:

  • respected industry leaders who can think strategically about, and respond to, the needs of the breadth of sectors represented by a Workforce Development Council
  • candidates with significant governance experience as well as excellent communication and collaboration skills, and a commitment to the kaupapa of the Workforce Development Councils
  • candidates with Māori whakapapa who can bring significant cultural competence and networks, including those with experience from within Māori employer or employee groups
  • candidates who can demonstrate support from industry associations, membership bodies, iwi and Māori authorities, or other relevant groups, and/or have union or employee group endorsements.

We urge members from our industry to apply for these critical leadership roles!
