Job Description

Due to internal movement we are seeking an IT professional with service desk experience and a wide-ranging knowledge of hardware to join us on a fixed term contract until September 2019.

In this role you will not only provide asset management support for NZDF hardware and software but you will contribute to world leading national security work and gain a unique insight into the intelligence and security sector.

Although this role is 40 hours per week we are happy to negotiate flexible hours and the option to work from home for part of the working week.

What you will do

In this hardware procurement analyst role which is titled Configuration Analyst, within CIS branch you will play a critical role in ensuring that teams across NZDF have the technology they need to ensure they can meet operational outputs.

In this role you will manage requests for hardware and software via an agreed process and deal with various vendors to ensure that requests are responded to in a timely manner.  

As requests are often varied (and sometimes unique or not included on the catalogue ) this means you'll need excellent relationship skills and technical analysis skills to ensure you have a good understanding of what is required from the requestor.     You'll then be responsible for obtaining technical approval, getting quotes and managing expectations with both the requestor and the supplier.   Once goods are delivered you'll be responsible for receipting purchase orders and ensuring hardware has arrived at the correct destination.

In addition you will provide backup support to the Software Procurement function when required.

Who we are

Every hour of every day, 365 days of the year, the New Zealand Defence Force contributes to the defence, security and well-being of Aotearoa / New Zealand.  As a modern, professional military, it is our goal to maintain well trained, equipped and disciplined armed forces that can react to crisis at short notice. 

CIS Branch provides the core information and communication services that underpin New Zealand Defence operations.  We enable the interaction between our people, our partners and the broader defence community, at home and abroad.

CIS Branch is totally unique, we are entrusted to deliver and support the Defence technology that helps keep New Zealanders safe. We work locally and globally to provide solutions to military-specific challenges and to ensure Defence information can flow efficiently and securely between New Zealand and our Allies.
Why Us 

Let's just say we're not your typical corporate IT department:

  • We provide support to more than 14,000 military and civilian Defence Force personnel who are dispersed on seven continents, often in geographically remote, hostile environments;

  • Our solutions are deployed to personal devices, vehicles, ships and planes;

  • We're here to deliver military outcomes, not just the technology behind them.


It's also the perfect time to join us. We are in the process of transforming our culture and the way we work so we truly understand our customers and partner with them strategically.

By joining us as we evolve to a modern, shared information and technology platform, you will be part of a culture that endears trust, empowers decision-making and respects people.

What we need

This role could suit you if you have service desk experience (or similar) and are used to working with a large range of hardware in a complex ICT environment.

Being able to build and maintain effective working relationships is important in this role, as is a strong customer service ethic.

In addition you will need to demonstrate that you have:

  • Technical hardware knowledge including an understanding of the various hardware components and their use
