Leadership and Talent

Leadership and Talent

State Services Commission NZ

The State Services Commission (SSC) is putting in place a programme that is significantly changing how the State sector identifies, develops and utilises leaders and talented people from the start of their careers to their most senior levels.

Our new talent management system will provide the tools and approaches to help leaders and people reach their full potential.

By maximising our potential leadership and talent across the public system, we will achieve better results for New Zealanders.

SSC is building leadership and talent across the State services by:

  • strengthening leadership across the system  
  • encouraging and supporting leaders to step into more challenging and complex roles
  • supporting the move away from a Wellington-centric view, encouraging diversity within the Public Service
  • identifying our most talented people, developing them and placing them where they are most needed.
