Dear John, 
Thank you for your email on 26 November 2022 to Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment 
requesting, under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act), the following information:  
“I noted,
&reserved=0 M
ay I ask how did you call for public nomination and on what platform you have 
call for public nominations, e.g. website. Also, how many applications you have 
received from the public and how many you have received from other nominating agencies such 
as TPK or ministry of women.” 

Your request has been considered under the Act.  
As there have been two Electrical Workers Registration Board advertisements recently, we will provide 
information to you on both for clarity.  
The first recruitment round was for two positions and was open from 21 September 2022 to 21 October 
2022. MBIE called for public nominations through the following:  
•  an invitation from the Minister to her Caucus colleagues to provide nominations 
•  advertising on the MBIE careers website, Seek and website 
•  requesting nominations from the Ministry of Women, Ministry of Ethnic Communities, Ministry 
for Pacific Peoples, Ministry for Disabled Peoples, and Te Puni Kokiri 
•  circulation of the advert through the Electron newsletter, an electrical industry publication  
We have received 23 applications from this recruitment round. The Ministry of Women forwarded the 
role onto two nominees, however, neither of them chose to apply. The Ministry for Ethnic Communities 
nominated one candidate for the role. No other candidates were from nominating agencies.  
The second recruitment round was for one position and was open from 4 November 2022 to 28 
November 2022. MBIE called for public nominations through the following:  
Labour, Science and Enterprise 
15 Stout Street, PO Box 1473, Wellington 6140 New Zealand 
E [email address] 

•  an invitation from the Minister to her Caucus colleagues to provide nominations 
•  advertising on the MBIE careers website, Seek and website 
•  requesting nominations from the Ministry of Women, Ministry of Ethnic Communities, Ministry 
for Pacific Peoples, Ministry for Disabled Peoples and Te Puni Kokiri  
We have received eight applications for this role. All were received from the general public, with none 
being received from nomination agencies.  
I trust you find the information helpful.   
You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision, in 
accordance with section 28(3) of the Act. Information about how to make a complaint is available at or freephone 0800 802 602. 
Yours sincerely, 
Paul Metcalf 
Manager, Appointments and Governance 
Labour, Science and Enterprise, MBIE
