Legislative drafters

The Parliamentary Counsel Office is looking for experienced lawyers (with 2 to 10 years’ post-qualification experience in a legal environment) wishing to become legislative drafters.

Working at PCO places you at the heart of Government, designing New Zealand’s legislation so that it can be fit for purpose, constitutionally sound, and accessible.

This important work requires you to be skilled in the law, analytically strong, and great at communicating and working with others. You will enjoy problem-solving, and be able to analyse complex ideas and policies and communicate them clearly. In developing legislation, you will work closely with government departments, provide advice to select committees of the New Zealand Parliament, and be involved in advising Ministers of the Crown and Cabinet committees. You will need a sound knowledge of the law and keen interest in the role and interpretation of legislation.

The role includes working closely with government departments, and advising select committees, Ministers and Cabinet committees.

Mā te PCO e whakapakari tōna āheitanga ki te whakamahi i te reo Māori ki roto i ngā ture. The PCO is committed to upskilling its capacity to include te reo Māori effectively in legislation.

Fluency in te reo Māori and knowledge of tikanga Māori will be an advantage.
