One of the things that I really love is the people that I work with. It is the experience, the backgrounds, and the expertise that I can learn from by working with the people at the Treasury.
I am a part of the forecasting team and we have regular discussions about the workings of the New Zealand economy and the implications of government policy for the economy.
At the Treasury, there is such a wide range of different people so you get these quite interesting conversations about economics and how do we apply economic theories to New Zealand and policy advice.
I am an economist at heart and I find the Treasury stimulating. I love the work that we get to do and I actually get excited to come to work. I was looking how I could apply my economics degree because I absolutely loved studying economics and I was particularly interested in Macroeconomics. The Treasury seemed like the best place to go for that.
Another thing that I liked was the graduate cohort. I think it is cool that you get this group of people that are all from different backgrounds but all coming into the same organisation at the same stage of their career. The Treasury offers such a broad range of experiences and a wide view of everything that is happening across the entire public sector and you get to work with a range of highly capable intelligent people. You also get a breadth of experiences early on in your career that I think is particularly unique to the Treasury.
