Job Description

The New Zealand Security Intelligence Service is looking for an experienced Executive Assistant to support the Director Protective Security.

The Protective Security Directorate has responsibility for the delivery of a customer-centric vetting service while also driving transformational change processes and best practice in operational, physical and IT security across government.

Key to succeeding in this role will be your professional and positive approach, along with your ability to work on a wide variety of tasks and efficiently manage workloads. You will also need to be comfortable dealing with ambiguity in a changing or high pressured environment.
