Strategic Advisor

New Zealand Police


Salary Range $104,890.00 - $141,910.00


Job Requisition ID 4641


By working for New Zealand Police you'll be joining thousands of others who are collectively working towards the shared mission of making New Zealand the safest country. There are a huge range of roles within New Zealand Police and an amazingly diverse group of people working within them. 

New Zealand Police is transforming the business of policing in New Zealand, and has shifted from a response driven model to prevention focussed policing, through strategic change programmes. Police continues to position itself as an effective, innovative, efficient and modern policing service offering a benchmark for others to follow and we are looking for high performing individuals to join us.

Our Strategy Group provides important service to the Commissioner and Police Executive team in respect of strategic planning, evidence-based decision making, performance management, oversight of Police's portfolio programme and project management framework and identifying innovative improvements to our operation. It's an exciting group that is successfully contributing to making New Zealanders be safe and feel safe.

We have an opportunity for you to join our Strategy Group working as part of the Strategic Integration Team. You will perform a pivotal role in providing timely advice and recommendations to the Director Strategic Integration to support strategic planning, development, integration and execution to achieve NZ Police Goals. 

This is a dynamic and challenging position where the environment can be fast-paced and you will sometimes need to manage a high workload. Your ability to work independently and prioritise work will be important.   You will be expected to have experience providing advice within public sector or other comparable organisations. You will need to be able to effectively problem solve, identify strategic initiatives, and actively contribute to the organisation's strategic "think tank" to achieve integrated strategies across the organisation, justice and social sectors.
