As a Senior Privacy Officer reporting to the Director, Privacy & Security Policy, you will work with a talented team who lead privacy, security safety and health enhancing services across the Ministry.

  • Excellent oral and writing communication ability
  • Demonstrated policy, strategic, research and analytical skills

  • An ability to take the lead, identify requirements and drive progress (independently) with the ability to empower, support and influence others
  • Able to juggle competing demands, prioritise and keep a cool head under pressure
