Remuneration: $48,893.00

Job Requisition ID 9412


Police Customer Service Centre Role – Police the streets without all the running.

Will you help make New Zealand the safest country?

As a Communication Support Coordinator, you will be the first point of contact for members of the public when they call their local police station.

You will assist in answering queries, taking updates, providing information or connecting calls to the right people.

That's why we're looking for people with excellent communication skills, who are keen to make a difference.

You will thrive in this role if you are:

  • Ability to work under pressure
  • A great listener and problem solver
  • An excellent communicator and empathetic, but not a counsellor
  • Resilient – you'll have a cool head when the pressure is on
  • Positive – care about making a difference and keeping communities safe

This is not your average customer service role. Every call is different, so you need to be able to think on your feet and deal with anything that comes your way.

We welcome applications from everyone who wants to help people regardless of gender, ethnicity, culture, sexuality, or faith. To better reflect New Zealand's growing diversity, we want you to bring your background, culture, and values to work.

We will train you and provide ongoing support

Special Requirements

  • Applicants must be a NZ or Australian citizen, or a NZ resident, or have a valid NZ work visa to apply for this position
  • Excellent verbal and written English skills
  • Ability for you and your immediate family to clear police vetting
