Job Description

  • Looking for a new challenge in 2020?
  • Enjoy projects that make a real difference?
  • Want to help protect New Zealand?

At the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS), we're not content to watch the world change around us – we need to stay ahead of the curve to make sure we're doing the best we can for New Zealand.  We're looking for a talented Project Manager to help grow the Project Management Team in the Change Delivery Unit, and to inject some new perspectives, fresh ideas and innovative ways of doing things.

The NZSIS Capability Directorate is responsible for ensuring the NZSIS is well positioned to keep New Zealand and New Zealanders safe – both now and into the future.  We deliver business and capability development, while ensuring our investment in technology and other capabilities is prioritised to deliver our strategic outcomes.

We have a busy change programme, involving both technology and business change, and need a passionate Project Manager with drive and vision. To be successful in this role you will have:

  • An understanding of project management principles, processes and documentation
  • Experience in developing and implementing test and user acceptance plans
  • Excellent communication and negotiation skills and the ability to engage with people across all levels
  • Ability to work on complex projects, juggling competing needs and priorities
  • Enthusiasm and be a self-motivated leader with demonstrated ability to innovate and inspire others

As well as interesting work we offer a range of benefits including professional development, free health insurance, on-site gym and fitness facilities and a great work life balance where you never have to take work home.

Whether you are early in your career, or an industry expert, we want to hear from you.  This is an opportunity to work in an exciting and dynamic environment to help shape our project management practices and make a contribution to New Zealand's national security. If this sounds like you, apply with us today!
