Our work units

The Ministry is organised into three groups.

Ministry staff in front of the former Public Trust Office building in March 2016.

Corporate Services Group

We undertake the large number of activities that support our busy Ministry.  These activities include communications, finance, human resources, information management and legal services.

More about the Corporate Services Group is here.

Delivery Group

Our historians, writers, researchers and advisers help make information about New Zealand history easy to find and create opportunities for New Zealanders to engage with their heritage.  We look after monuments and war graves throughout New Zealand. Key among our projects at the moment is managing the WW100 programme.

Policy and Sector Performance Group

We provide policy advice to the government on arts, culture, heritage, broadcasting, and sports and recreation.  We do this by working on policy proposals, legislation and reviews that are significant to the sector.  We also monitor the government's interests in the cultural sector agencies who receive crown funding.  We offer additional support through our appointments and governance service.

In addition, the Office of the Chief Executive supports the work of our Chief Executive Paul James.
