Job Description

  • Are you interested in playing a key role in protecting New Zealand's sensitive assets?
  • Do you enjoy an intellectual challenge and complex decision making?
  • Are you looking for fast paced, meaningful work with a high level of public interest?


With the current proposed changes to the Overseas Investment Regime we have exciting opportunities for motivated individuals to join the Overseas Investment Office (OIO). 

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to apply your legal background, commercial acumen and sound judgement to the assessment of overseas investment applications. This role provides variety and challenge in assessing and advising on applications from overseas investors to invest in sensitive New Zealand assets, and the formulation of advice to aid decision making.

To be successful you will come from a legal or regulatory environment and be commercially savvy with exceptional analytical skills.  You'll get the opportunity to work as part of a cohesive, high functioning team and so it is vital you are able to relate well to people of all levels and backgrounds.

This opportunity will allow you to be involved in challenging and politically visible work that impacts positively on New Zealand's future.  We'll reward you with a competitive salary, a supportive team environment and the chance to develop your career in a Regulatory environment.

If this sounds like you, then apply online and submit your covering letter and CV.  Whilst a legal qualification is preferred it is not necessary. Experience in any of New Zealand's primary sectors would be an advantage.

If you have any questions about the role, please contact Leanne at 

Applications close at 5.00pm on Sunday 26 August 2018. 

About us

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.
