The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) is New Zealand's largest government department, providing services that make a real difference to the lives of New Zealanders.


    Our work is challenging with high risks, and high public expectations - but we are passionate about it. We're always on the lookout for people who share our enthusiasm for helping New Zealanders, young and old, be safe, strong and move forward with their lives.



    We are an organisation that puts people first and that includes our staff. At MSD we are committed to providing a work environment that's supportive, and that helps develop your skills and experience.
