Job Description

Are you able to take complex information and make it easy for the intended audience to understand? Do grammatical and formatting errors leap out of the page at you begging to be corrected?
We're looking for a skilled technical writer. You should be able to analyse, interpret, simplify and communicate technical information in plain English. You should have excellent knowledge of English language and grammar and a strong focus on quality and attention to detail. You should have an understanding of business process modelling and have managed documents through the lifecycle.
This position will be part of transforming the Defence Logistics Command (DLC) to a fully integrated and future focused organisation. Initially this role will work within the Strategy and Business Process Workstream of the Consolidated Logistics Project (CLP).  Towards the end of the Project it will transition into the business. 
Following approval of the detailed business case by Cabinet in December 2016 the CLP has been working on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the Logistics business and advancing NZDF towards logistics excellence. The Project will deliver a business model with strengthened lines of accountability, additional capacity and fit for purpose systems and processes to appropriately manage equipment in-service and deliver consistent reliable logistics services to customers.
A minimum of 5 years experience in a similar position or field is essential. Experience of the New Zealand Defence force and/or knowledge of logistics is highly desirable but not essential.  If you are able to design and draw business and technical diagrams it would be an advantage.
