Ministry for Women

The Ministry for Women (the Ministry of Women's Affairs) identifies women to be considered for appointment to boards and committees. This includes positions on trusts, commissions, councils, tribunals and quasi-judicial bodies, review teams, reference groups, task forces, and unique roles where specific expertise is sought. The Ministry occasionally receives requests from outside the state sector as well.

The Ministry uses the personal information from your Curriculum Vitae (CV) to match your skills and experience against the requests we receive for candidates. Your personal information will be stored securely by the Ministry. Under the Privacy Act you are entitled to access and correct any personal information the Ministry for Women  holds about you.

The Ministry may also pass on your personal information to third parties so that you can be considered for a board vacancy appointment. In the course of nominating you for suitable positions your personal information may be disclosed to:

  • Ministers of the Crown, and their offices, ministries and departments when candidates are being considered for appointments, or may be considered for appointment;
  • representatives of other companies or organisations (including private companies, recruitment agencies, and not-for-profit organisations) when candidates are being considered for appointments.

Once any personal information has been transferred by the Ministry for Women to another agency, the responsibility is on the receiving agency receiving the information to hold the information and maintain it in a manner that complies with the Privacy Act. Please note we will not include any information about an impairment or disability. If you have any questions or concerns about how your personal information may be collected, used, or stored by the Ministry, please call the Nominations Service on 04 916-5824.
