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.

Our Connected Journey Solutions group aims to deliver step-change innovation for the transport system through digital technologies and to grow a digital savvy, innovative culture within the Transport Agency and wider sector.

The role

Join a fast-paced and exciting team who are focused on looking at what our customers want over the next 10 years and what technology is available that we can invest in to deliver our customer goals. You will lead the analysis and help manage relationships with key stakeholders in relation to the development of the 10 year Land Transport Technology Roadmap. You will also get the opportunity to lead assigned pilot projects and the associated processes to provide funding for emerging technologies. You'll understand technology and ideally have some awareness of how it can be applied to in a transport context. Your relationship management skills will be a key strength and you'll enjoy working with a range of stakeholders to keep them informed, manage expectations and get the right people involved at the right time.

What you will bring

To be successful in this role, you will bring:

  • Experience working with policy, ideally in relation to transport
  • Experience which demonstrates the ability to engage with new and emerging technologies (for example, developing policies or experience in the sector)
  • Strong stakeholder management skills, including experience working closely with senior stakeholders
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Good communications skills, both written and verbal
  • The ability to work autonomously in a fast paced environment
  • A flexible and adaptable approach to work
  • A results driven approach with a high degree of self-motivation
  • An understanding of the machinery of government and the confidence to work with Ministers and other government officials
