Leading and managing an operational team, you will provide technical guidance to make sure NZSIS operational security and intelligence objectives are delivered securely and efficiently.
You’ll play a key role in driving human source collection operations in support of Counter Terrorism, as well as managing operational relationships which contribute towards a sound understanding of Counter Terrorism baseline and emerging threats in New Zealand.
