About Maxim

Maxim Institute is an independent think tank working to promote the dignity of every person in New Zealand by standing for freedom, justice, and compassion.

At the core of our work is an understanding that ideas will shape society over time. So we’re in the business of long-term research and analysis of the policies and ideas that form our nation’s social, political, and cultural practices.

We’re working towards a positive future for New Zealand, where each of us is grounded in deep connections with our communities, where we treat each other with generosity and strive for unity while respecting our differences, and where we all have the opportunities we need to provide for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

  • Communication Skills – the ability to listen well and communicate requirements clearly.
