Senior Analyst, Input Methodologies
Our Infrastructure Regulation branch is looking for an experienced, intelligent, and inquisitive analyst with strong writing and communication skills. You'll join a team that sets and reviews the regulatory rules for critical infrastructure that includes electricity lines companies, gas pipeline businesses, major international airports, and Fibre broadband.
Initially, you will be working on a major review of these rules to assess whether the rules are fit for purpose in the face of key challenges like decarbonisation and covid-19. Based in either our Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington) or Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland) office, we have both a permanent and an 18 month fixed term position reporting to the Input Methodologies Manager.
Mō te tūranga | About the role
The input methodologies (IM) team is responsible for the upfront rules we set that underpin our regulation of key infrastructure in NZ (electricity lines, gas pipelines, major international airports, and fibre broadband). These rules are called ‘input methodologies' and cover key aspects like how we value assets, allocate costs, share risk between businesses and consumers, and how businesses are compensated for their investments.
We're here for the long-term benefit of consumers and our rules and regulations perform important functions like limiting excessive profits and ensuring businesses have incentives to innovate and invest to deliver the services that their consumers demand.
You'll work on multiple projects within multi-disciplinary teams made up of lawyers, economists and technical specialists. You'll gather and critically analyse information, identify key issues, draw logical conclusions and present these back to our decision makers.
He kōrero mōu | About you
A true team player, you'll be experienced working in a fast-paced environment and bring a proactive and solutions-focused approach. You'll be able to think, write and communicate clearly and offer sound critical thinking skills and be comfortable presenting to stakeholders at all levels. A key part of the role will be breaking down complex information into key messages and chapters of our documents to communicate our decisions externally with clarity and accuracy.
You will also bring the following:
- the ability to prioritise, focus on high value outputs and resolve challenging problems
- relationship management skills
- policy or regulatory experience
- the ability to understand accounting and economic principles and interpret legislation.
We know that a diverse team with a range of life and work experiences enables high performance and innovation. Your work experience might include:
- technical accounting analysis
- finance and capital budgeting
- financial audit
- economic or legal policy analysis
A university degree in an analytical field (e.g. accounting, commerce, law, science, or statistics) would be an advantage but is not essential.
