Hon Grant Robertson was born in Palmerston North and lived in Hastings before his family settled in Dunedin. Grant’s belief in social justice and a desire to see every New Zealander able to achieve their potential led him to politics, and he has been the Member of Parliament for Wellington Central since 2008. 

Grant studied politics at Otago, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in 1995. His involvement in the campaign against user-pays education led him to become President of the Otago University Students Association, and later Vice President and then Co-President of the New Zealand University Students Association. After leaving university, Grant joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and was also posted to the United Nations in New York.

On his return to New Zealand, he became an advisor to then-Minister of Environment Marian Hobbs, then to Prime Minister Helen Clark. In Opposition, Grant was Finance
Spokesperson and has previously held spokesperson roles for Labour in Employment, Skills & Training, Economic Development, Tertiary Education, State Services, Health, and Arts, Culture & Heritage.

Grant met his partner Alf in 1998 playing rugby, and their family now includes two grandchildren. In 2009 they were joined in a civil union.
