Director Human Resource Operations

New Zealand Police

Remuneration range: $236,549.68 – 313,080.46


Job Requisition ID 4707


  • Complexity, scale and diversity
  • Exceptional leadership opportunity


New Zealand Police is a large and complex organisation in an exciting period of transformation. To deliver on our strategic objectives, we need to improve our approach to the people components of service delivery – especially maximising technology.  If you are a driven, ambitious, passionate, results and people focussed leader, this could be the role for you.


As the Director HR Operations, you will oversee strategic management of the operational elements of HR service delivery. You will lead a team of senior managers responsible for critical functions in the service supply chain. You will oversee the complex technology platform of our ERP solution as we embed a technology-centric operating model across the organisation. This role is for someone who has successfully led a large complex shared service or operational function that is committed to improving service delivery.


We're looking for the leadership x-factor – someone who inspires others to be their best, and brings with them a collaborative approach that drives a culture where views are highly valued, and are used to inform the design of the service delivery experience. You will be responsible for building a culture that leads to high performance through this effective leadership and will contribute to this at a senior level. You will have excellent and proven relationship-building and leadership skills and have the ability to engage with a diverse range of stakeholders.


Rounding out your professional experience, you'll be commercially astute, with the intellectual agility to lead this large business unit through change, and provide sound advice to Executive. You will also have proven experience in working with large-scale payroll systems and/or HRIS solutions and a solid technical understanding of HR Information systems.
