AoG External Recruitment Services – Government Agency Workshops

13 July 2016

The All-of-Government External Recruitment Services (ERS) Agreements are due to expire on 19 September 2017. New Zealand Government Procurement (NZGP) within the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is currently in an early market engagement phase.

In this phase, we will inform agencies of the processes we are undertaking and seek information and feedback about the market and agency requirements. This information will help us to form possible future solutions for the ERS Contract.

As part of this early market engagement phase, we will be holding workshops across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in August. Attendees will be sent a survey at the end of each session for an additional opportunity to provide detailed feedback.

We will advise of other options for the market to engage with us in due course.

What will the workshops cover?

  • Background and brief history of current contract
  • Process timelines
  • Questions and answers
  • Feedback opportunities


Below are the locations, dates and times for the upcoming workshops.

This is a great opportunity for you to inform the CoE about your requirements and views. It will also be a chance to see some of the ideas that the CoE has come up with and give feedback on these.

Please click here to register your interest in attending.

These workshops will have limited capacity and we cannot guarantee entry to the workshop if you have not registered. We would prefer that only 1 representative from each agency is present to allow as many organisations as possible an opportunity to attend.

2 Aug
11am – 12:30pm
280 Queens Street, CBD
4 Aug
11am – 12:30pm
55 Wordsworth Street, Sydenham
8 Aug

There will also be anonymous drop-boxes at each workshop which attendees can use to write questions or suggestions.


We will be issuing a survey which mimics the workshops. This is an additional opportunity to provide feedback, particularly for those of you who cannot attend any of our sessions. Please click here to register to receive the survey.
