This is a great opportunity to be at the heart of ensuring New Zealanders benefit from overseas investment. Senior Advisors in the Applications Team use their experience of strong critical analysis and sound judgement to analyse applications against legal tests under the Overseas Investment Act 2005 and assess risks. This includes overseas investment in sensitive land, significant business assets, and strategically important businesses. The applications are often high-profile and politically sensitive.
Senior Advisors are required to effectively present their analysis and recommendations to decision-makers (including Ministers), applicants, and the wider public. Senior Advisors are also expected to mentor junior colleagues and contribute to overall improvements of our regulatory regime.
No two applications are the same and this role provides the opportunity to demonstrate strong critical analytic skills.
