Public Sector

The public sector accounts for around a third of New Zealand’s economy (currently $72 billion), around 13% of total employment (over 226,000 people) and around 10% of the national balance sheet ($240 billion of assets and $170 billion of liabilities). The sector provides the core foundations of law and order, regulates our work and leisure activities, and supplies a wide range of services.

MartinJenkins is uniquely placed to support public sector agencies in being more productive, innovative and responsive, in delivering high-quality services, and in addressing the complex, long-term issues that matter most to New Zealanders. Over the past two decades we have shaped major trends and developed solutions to the critical challenges faced by the public sector. Under one roof, we bring together the core capabilities required for a high-quality public sector organisation to deliver results.
