An Expressions of Interest (EOI) process has been launched to seek interest from industry leaders who want to be on nomination and appointment committees. These committees will play a critical role in recommending and appointing new members into WDC governance councils.  Te Tiriti o Waitangi is a key consideration in the formation of these governance councils, and will underpin both vocational education strategy and approach. 

Roles on these committees are being sought across the following WDCs:

Nomination Committees

  • Creative, Cultural, Recreation and Technology WDC
  • Primary Industries WDC

Appointment Committees

  • Construction and Infrastructure WDC
  • Health, Community and Social Services WDC
  • Manufacturing, Engineering and Logistics WDC

The Services WDC governance council appointments process does not require a nomination or appointment committee.

The EOI is being run by an independent recruitment partner. For more details, including a detailed information pack visit:

Expressions of Interest for the WDC governance council member roles will be coming soon.  Please note those of you who want to apply for a permanent WDC governance council role, when advertised, should not apply for appointment to the nomination or appointment committee for that WDC.
