Job Description

The State Services Commission (SSC) leads the public sector to make a positive difference for New Zealand and New Zealanders.

Working for the Commission is about being part of a small, agile team with a big ambition for New Zealand and New Zealanders. This is your chance to work directly with New Zealand's top public service leaders, helping them to deliver on that ambition.

As an Assistant Commissioner, your work will be full of variety.  You will lead major cross-system work programmes, sponsor projects, manage issues, advise Ministers and help recruit chief executives and other senior leaders.  You will often be out of the office, out and about making things happen. You will be a seasoned professional – someone who is confident, a straight-shooter, empathetic and principled but also pragmatic.

You will enjoy working with others to get results and you will be able to confidently navigate complex issues in a world where the answers are not always straightforward or clear.  Your time with our organisation will give you a unique perspective on the State services and help equip you for top leadership roles. 

If you would like to discuss this role, please contact Kellie Coombes, 021536146,

We believe in a diverse and inclusive Public Service which reflects the communities that we serve. You must have the right to live and work in New Zealand to apply for this job. Talk to us about what flexible work arrangements might work for both you and us.
