Closing Date: July 4, 2021

Our work is secret, but the reason for our success isn’t. It’s our people. And we’re just like you. We’re ordinary people. But together, we’re doing extraordinary things to protect New Zealand and New Zealanders.

While we’re ordinary people, we’re not all the same. We welcome diversity, in all its forms, in fact we consider it a strength.

Join us and become part of a Community where your skills, experiences and ideas are valued and you’re encouraged to be curious, to share your ideas and of course, have fun along the way.

If you’re up for the challenge, become Beyond Ordinary with us.

The Information Assurance and Cyber Security Directorate (IACD) creates a safer digital world for New Zealand to prosper. In a constantly evolving threat environment, IACD provides specialist cyber security services to defend national security, raise cyber resilience, facilitate digital transformation, support economic recovery and improve New Zealand’s wellbeing. It engages with a diverse public and private customer base across New Zealand in order to fulfil its essential purpose. IACD houses the National Cyber Security Centre and the Government Chief Information Security Officer function.

In this role, you will support the Business Manager and wider directorate to identify new business processes to enhance service delivery, and develop and prepare documentation. You will also have a flair for numbers and enjoy making sure people have the right information to make the right decisions.

You will need to be self-driven, organised and have the ability to learn and acquire new knowledge and skills. Your eye for detail and commitment to accuracy and quality will be appreciated and well utilised.

You will pride yourself on your ability to confidently and appropriately communicate with others at all levels within the organisation and build strong relationships.

To be successful in this role you will be able to demonstrate:

  • The ability to influence others across all levels of the business
  • Experience in operational policy analysis
  • Your astute judgement across a range of areas

This is a new role within the directorate and would offer the right candidates scope to come in and really make the role their own.

We want our people to succeed, whatever success looks like for them. Join us and we’ll give you significant professional development opportunities aimed at taking your career in the direction you want it to go. You won’t stand still with us as we’re committed to ongoing learning and continuous improvement. We’re also committed to your wellbeing. We want our people to be the best they can be, both at work and at home. We offer our people comprehensive benefits, access to staff networking groups, flexible working and great work-life balance.
