Join the IPANZ New Professionals
IPANZ New Professionals is for anyone new to the public service who would like to know more about how it all works.
Most government organisations are IPANZ members – if your organisation is a member, you can come to events for free and sign up for training at a discounted rate.
What We Do
We host events. We want to make it easier for you to form relationships across the public service and to learn from people who are good at what they do.
Meet the Chiefs
At these events, chief executives (CEs) reflect on their careers – often sharing deep insights, helpful tips, and their perspective on what is or will be important. Coffee, breakfast, and the opportunity to quiz a CE – all provided.
At these events, young professionals (who are in the public service or ‘public service adjacent') mix and mingle, form connections and get to know what different workplaces and roles are like. While you may come for the free food, you’ll end up staying for the chat.
Public Sector 101 is an online course designed to provide you with a comprehensive introduction to the public sector in just 8 ½ hours over 6 sessions. We cover a lot of ground, and there are sessions on:
- te tiriti o Waitangi
- parliament, legislation and the constitution,
- ministers, officials and the policy process
- parliament's financial cycle, and
- scrutiny and integrity.
