Job Description

We are looking for a Policy Manager to lead our small and talented policy team for 12 months to cover parental leave. The work programme is varied, and has impact across the organisation and sector.

The successful candidate will provide strategic input and advice on issues that are at the heart of our work. You will manage and deliver sound analysis and develop key policies, and will lead important parts of PHARMAC's cross agency work including with the Ministry of Health and the Minister of Health's office. You will engage directly with the Senior Leadership Team, Chief Executive and occasionally the Board across a range of work.

To be considered for this opportunity, you will be operating at a Senior or Principal Policy Advisor level with some leadership responsibility, or perhaps already be in a policy management role.

You must

  • have sound policy development experience
  • have top-notch influencing and stakeholder engagement skills
  • be an effective communicator
  • have well-developed government networks
  • demonstrate leadership and management abilities, and
  • be politically astute.

Experience working within the health sector would be a strong advantage.

If you're well-organised and delivery-focused, and love leading and developing a team, this may be the role for you.

This is a brilliant opportunity to join a unique and high performing Crown entity that is truly making a difference to the lives of New Zealanders.

Please apply via our Career's page here before 5pm 26 February 2019.
