Kōrero mō te Tūranga - About the Role
This is an exciting time to join the New Zealand Food Safety business unit where you can exhibit your passion and skills to improve the existing systems to achieve high-quality and data driven results. These roles will focus on deriving value from our data - from collating, to analysis and to presenting. This hugely important role will help drive the decision making across NZFS and help identify and support new high value projects.
As a visual narrator, you can showcase derived information and insights in clear and compelling visual formats, e.g., dashboards and other infographics, providing enduring value for risk managers and decision makers.
You will have opportunities to initiate and improve processes that would add value to both the Food Regulation directorate and across the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).
You will encounter exciting opportunities, providing you the platform to interact with food businesses, industry representatives and other agencies in the regulatory system, and gather valuable insights to deliver the organisational goals.
You will become a part of the ‘budding community of practice for analysts' which is mainly focused on facilitating professional development opportunities for our analysts, exploring collaborative work prospects, and building capability across the directorate.
Mōu - About You
We are looking for experienced analyst who enjoy working with complex data to derive insights and compelling evidence to help the decision risk managers.
In addition, we are looking for someone that:
- Has experience building dashboards and data tools using business intelligence software, like MicroStrategy and Power BI
- Is confident in using Structured Query Language (SQL) and relational database management
- Has proven experience in absorbing technical information and presenting it in a clear and concise manner to a non-technical audience
- Can gather and link data from multiple sources, then identify trends and present these clearly to tell compelling stories.
- Has experience in using the information gathered to design surveys and provide monitoring reports.
- Can translate information from Subject Matter Experts and others into automated processes, tools, and templates that are appropriate and fit-for-purpose for the specific audience
Mō tō mātou Rōpū - About the Team
New Zealand food businesses are diverse - not only in what they make or do and how they make or do it – but also in the value they derive from their food. Food safety regulation is changing, not just in New Zealand but around the world. It is increasingly less about setting rigid rules, and more about providing systems and services that enable businesses to find their own ways to meet easy to understand food safety and suitability outcomes.
The primary functions of New Zealand Food Safety's (NZFS) Food Regulation directorate are setting the bar, helping people meet the bar and enhancing the food safety system.
The work we do strongly contributes to our country's public health, economic, and wellbeing outcomes. We ensure that food is safe and suitable, consumers globally can trust food produced in New Zealand and make informed choices, food businesses can thrive and innovate within a fit-for-purpose regulatory framework, and overseas governments can have a high level of confidence and trust in our export assurances.
