Work with us

Our purpose is to promote and protect the human rights of all people in Aotearoa New Zealand. We work for a free, fair, safe and just New Zealand, where Te Tiriti is honoured, diversity is valued and human dignity and rights are respected.

At the Human Rights Commission we work for and with communities across the country to make Aotearoa New Zealand a better place for everyone. We are an equal opportunities employer, committed to becoming a Tiriti-based organisation, and our workforce is as diverse as the areas we work in.
