Housing New Zealand's vision is to be the social housing provider of choice. We provide houses for people and families who need them, for as long as they need them. We maintain those houses so they are warm, dry, safe and healthy to live in. 

Do you have strong and effective interpersonal skills, together with excellent customer service skills?

Are you proactive with a proven track record of applying common sense, making sound judgements, and joining the dots to "see the big picture". 

If so, we would like you to become part of a small outgoing and energetic team within Housing New Zealand that is making a tangible contribution to lifting Health and Safety and protective security capability in Housing New Zealand.

The Health Safety and Security Team within the People Technology and Change business group are seeking a Security Advisor to support the organisation in strengthening and expanding the security programme. 

As the Security Advisor you will be responsible for providing operational support to the the organisation. You will also work collaboratively with other Housing New Zealand teams to ensure that Health, Safety and Security practices are delivered to a high standard.
