Treasury recruitment campaign for UK only staff

Adam Irish made this Official Information request to The Treasury

Response to this request is long overdue. By law The Treasury should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Adam Irish

Dear The Treasury,

Following up on my OIA on 25 May 2023. I request the additional information below:

Please provide the job add listing for the NZ recruitment round/s for the below (mentioned) positions, and advise the date and number of NZ applications for each role. Additionally how many hiring rounds were undertaken and what hiring criteria did NZ Treasury have that all the NZ candidates fail to meet. Before the positions were advertised in the UK.

Role 85% of Band 100% of Band
Senior Analyst $121,359 $142,775
Principal Advisor $163,245 $192,053

Additionally can you please provide documents and rationale for advertising only in the UK. Did this occur after the failure of successive rounds of trying to hire New Zealanders?

Lastly, was there any deployment of Treasury staff to the UK, in any trade/HR fairs etc to promote this. And how much did this cost?

How much has the whole UK hiring arounds cost NZ tax payers?

Yours faithfully,

Adam Irish
