Jacinda Ardern is ranked No. 4 in Labour’s shadow Cabinet. She is the Spokesperson for Social Development and Children. Her passion for social justice led her to the party at just 17. She was elected in 2008. Jacinda ran in the 2011 election as Labour’s candidate for Auckland Central, halving the incumbent’s majority down to approximately 700 votes.
Before entering Parliament Jacinda worked for 2 and a half years for the Better Regulation Executive in UK Cabinet Office. Her role as an Associate Director was to improve the way that local authorities in particular interfaced with business.
She also worked as an advisor in the Office of Prime Minister Helen Clark and was only the second woman to be elected President of the largest international political youth organisation globally – IUSY, a role which saw her spending time in places ranging from Jordan, Israel and Algeria through to China.
Jacinda is a proud resident of Freemans Bay. She believes in an Auckland and a New Zealand that owns its future, and its assets, that is smart and grows the economy by investing in Research and Development and clean technology, has a world class public transport system that we can be proud of, invests in children, and is genuinely a world leader on environmental issues.
