Job Description

  • Develop and maintain the cultural direction of a professional in-house legal team
  • Strategic leadership of legal function
  • Influence and collaborate within MNZ and across government

Exciting opportunity leading a professional, specialist legal services team in a diverse and dynamic regulatory and response environment.

Maritime NZ is recruiting senior managers to our newly established Regulatory Systems Design group.  If you have a passion for leading professionals working in a diverse and dynamic regulatory and response environment, then this position may be suitable for you.   This role requires significant experience in senior management and leadership, preferably in the public sector, and offers the opportunity to influence the re-establishment of the legal function within Maritime NZ.

The maritime sector is central to our economy. Maritime NZ is the national maritime safety, security and environment regulatory, compliance and response agency.  Our work focusses on ensuring safe, secure and clean seas.  Maritime NZ is a great place to work, offering diversity and a rewarding career opportunity.  Our people are dedicated and driven to work towards our vision and our values.

The Manager Legal Services leads and manages a professional, specialist legal services team, and provides strategic leadership of Maritime NZ's legal function.  The diversity of legal work within the team is such that it suits a leader who is highly competent in planning and resource allocation.  The role is based in our Wellington office, with staff in our legal services team based in Wellington and Auckland.

In this highly respected role, you will build, manage and motivate a dedicated and cohesive team, fostering a collaborative and positive team culture aligned with Maritime NZ's organisational values.  You will support the Chief Legal Counsel in oversight and review or organisational legal risk management, and you will contribute to and influence the development of wider Maritime NZ strategies which contribute to the Government's overall maritime transport strategy.

You will join a team of managers within the Regulatory Systems Design group who are tasked with providing clear and dynamic leadership for the group and contributing to Maritime NZ's leadership capabilities. 

To be successful in this role you will hold a Bachelor of Laws and admission as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand.  Your significant experience as a senior manager leading a team of professional staff and an in-house legal function will be required, as will your ability to build and maintain effective relationships, both within Maritime NZ and externally.

Please review the position description and if you believe you have the skills and experience we are looking for, please apply online via the Maritime NZ Careers Page.  You will be required to complete an application form and submit a covering letter and CV.

Applications close Monday 7 January 2019.
