Job Description

  • Have you successfully built or led high performing teams?
  • Do you enjoy navigating challenging situations?
  • Are you interested in playing a key role in protecting New Zealand's sensitive assets?


At Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), we underpin New Zealand's success with information about ‘where' - ensuring New Zealand has accurate information about where people and places are, that people have confidence in their property rights, now and for future generations.

The Overseas Investment Office (OIO) is an integral part of Land Information New Zealand, and will be implementing new legislation aimed at benefitting New Zealanders.

In this newly created role you'll lead the team responsible for assessing applications under New Zealand's overseas investment regime.   You'll be a strong people leader focused on supporting and developing a team of skilled professionals to provide high quality advice to decision makers.  Therefore having great commercial nous with the ability to determine risk and apply good judgement will be key in this role.

Building relationships with stakeholders within and outside the wider public sector will be one of your strengths, as engagement skills and the ability to influence are essential for this role. You'll get the opportunity to work closely with other teams across the OIO to ensure collective responsibility for decision making on applications for consent and sign off of advice to Ministers.

Join a smart, hands-on regulator at an exciting time of strong growth and developing maturity and be part of making sure New Zealand's assets are in the right hands, and enabling overseas investment that benefits New Zealanders.   An in-depth understanding of the machinery of government, particularly in a regulatory context, will be advantageous.

About OIO

The Overseas Investment Office (OIO) assists the Government in applying the Overseas Investment Act 2005.  This Act makes sure New Zealand's sensitive assets are in good hands, and enables overseas investment that benefits New Zealand.

The OIO assesses applications from overseas investors wishing to purchase sensitive assets, and advises ministers on whether or not to grant consent. The OIO also makes consent decisions itself, under delegations from ministers.

The OIO also enforces the provisions of the Act to ensure investors gain consent when required; give truthful and complete information about themselves and their plans; and keep the commitments they made when they were granted consent.

The OIO is part of Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) which is the government department responsible for land related functions (including land titles), geodetic and cadastral survey systems, topographic information, hydrographic information, managing Crown property and administering the Overseas Investment Act.
