Do you care about helping people be safe and feel safe?


If you do then you could be the person we are looking for to help us recruit police officers. 


New Zealand Police is the lead agency responsible for reducing crime and enhancing community safety. We work in partnership with communities and a range of agencies to achieve our vision of Safer Communities Together. 


To meet the new and increasing demands of modern policing in New Zealand we are ramping up our recruitment drive and are looking for a Senior Selection Specialist to join our Recruitment Hub based in Tauranga. 


Our team is made up of recruitment professionals who work together to ensure the delivery of quality police recruits for the Middle & Upper North Island police districts. This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual who is passionate about recruitment to join a highly successful brand.    


You will have recent and extensive experience in end to end recruitment, and use of recruitment tools, from either an agency or internal role.  Being able to demonstrate a sound knowledge and experience of behavioural based interviewing, psychometric assessment tools and their use in the selection process is essential.


You would have trained and supported other team members in a previous role or looking for this as part of your career progression.  You would have also had experience co-ordinating the workload of others.


Sound judgment, an eye for detail and an ability to build rapport with a wide range of people from different backgrounds and cultures is essential.  You will enjoy working in a fast paced, high volume environment.


You will work with a range of technologies to manage key aspects of the recruitment process and deliver high-quality outcomes. Therefore a high degree of computer literacy is essential.  This role does not require regular travel but you need the flexibility to travel if required.
