About us

At the NZ Transport Agency, it all starts with our people. The organisation's performance and success depends on the people who choose to make this a great place to work and make a difference for New Zealand. The Transport Agency has a strong future focus, understanding that new technologies and changing customer expectations mean the transport system we know today will not be the one we deliver in ten years' time.

The focus of System Design and Delivery is on designing and delivering an integrated transport system - one that reflects the plans and priorities of the Transport Agency and its partners. As part of this, Procurement plays an integral role to ensure value for money outcomes within the Transport Agency and across the broader transport industry. 

The role

Work with us as we develop and implement best practice procurement.  Working closely with our suppliers and other business groups in the agency, you will be the expert in gathering and analysing information that will have an impact on the agency's procurement landscape through policy development, process improvement and best practice outcomes.

This is a development role that has a monitoring and reporting function (spend and category analysis), as you will be responsible for collating data, analysing the content and providing procurement advice on the information you've assessed.  The team, together with business units, will look to use this information to develop procurement strategies, rationalise the supply base and drive new and innovative ways of doing business. . In addition, you will be overseeing the collection, coordination and processing of various internal and external government reports.

Part of your development will be supporting and leading assigned procurement and contract activities.   This is an exciting opportunity to progress your procurement career by working with a collegial and professional group of people committed to your development and focused on creating the best procurement environment possible.

 What you will bring

To be successful in this role, you will bring:

  • The ability and/or experience in applying analytical processes, numerical and quantitative data interpretation
  • The ability to collate and assimilate information from data gathered
  • Strong communication skills
  • A keen mind, with a passion to learn and grow
  • Tertiary qualification (e.g. MCIPS or working towards attaining this) in a related discipline or equivalent experience

This is an opportunity to work with us as we create a top class procurement practice resulting in strong partnerships on both a national and a regional basis. 

We are looking for candidates with a range of experience and are happy to provide relocation to offshore candidates that have the skills and experience that we are seeking. If you are interested learning more about the role or about what it's like to work for the New Zealand Transport Agency then we would love to hear from you.
