Mō te tūranga | About the role
Working as an Analyst in the Market Regulation branch no two days are the same. You will have the opportunity to showcase your analysis skills which could vary from qualitative and quantitative analysis to economic and legal analysis as well as policy and engagement work. This is a role with true variety where your work directly impacts everyday New Zealanders.
In a nutshell, you'll work on multiple projects within multi-disciplinary teams made up of lawyers, economists, project managers and technical specialists. You'll gather and critically analyse information, identify key issues, draw logical conclusions, develop solutions and help present these back to our decision makers.

A valued 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. You'll also be comfortable presenting to stakeholders at all levels.

• relationship management skills
• policy or regulatory experience
• the ability to understand accounting and economic principles and interpret legislation.
A university degree in an analytical field (e.g. accounting, commerce, law, science, or statistics) would be an advantage but is not essential.
