Operations Officer NZSIS - Auckland

Closing Date: March 4, 2020

Job Description

  • Do you want to work with a group of people who are passionate about protecting and advancing New Zealand’s way of life?
  • Looking for a meaningful and rewarding career where you will make a tangible contribution to the security of New Zealand?

The New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS) is currently recruiting for an Operations Officer in Auckland. We are looking for a highly talented and professional individual with a range of life experience to work within this diverse and exciting area of our organisation.

The Operations Officer is responsible for the delivery of critical intelligence between deployed operational teams and key stakeholders in support of national security investigations and operations throughout the country. It would suit someone who is keen to take on a challenging and dynamic role.

Is this for you?

To be successful in this role, you need to be resilient, able to work in a high pressure environment, and be committed and enthusiastic about the role of the NZSIS. You will be comfortable working both in a team environment and alone, and your ability to multitask and prioritise information will be key. Working in a dynamic operational environment, you will be comfortable managing periods of relative inactivity, together with often unpredictable periods of intense and fast-paced activity. Ideally, you will have experience in an operational control centre or communications centre.

Key skills and attributes required in this role are:

Experience handling, understanding, processing, analysing and communicating intelligence, or similar information

  • Strong attention to detail and keen observation skills
  • Excellent judgement and decision making ability
  • An appreciation for technology and the ability to learn new systems
  • An awareness of, and interest in, current affairs and issues that affect New Zealand on a domestic and international level
  • Outstanding communication, interpersonal and relationship management skills
  • A professional, can-do approach
  • A high level of integrity and trustworthiness

As an Operations Officer, you will be required to work unsociable hours at any time of the day or night to meet operational requirements.

Our team includes people who come from all walks of life, all ages, and are from many cultures; but we all share common values and are committed to doing beyond ordinary work everyday to keep New Zealanders safe.

We offer a range of benefits that include professional development opportunities, 20 days’ annual leave plus additional leave entitlements and subsidised health insurance.
