At the Department of Internal Affairs, our purpose is to serve and connect people, communities and government to build a safe, prosperous and respected nation. In other words, it's all about helping to make New Zealand better for New Zealanders.

The Information and Safety group at the Department of Internal Affairs has recently been working through change.  This has resulted in the establishment of a new team, Capability and Performance, and we are now looking for two Capability and Awareness Advisors.

The Advisor Capability and Awareness is responsible for leading implementation of a capability uplift strategy as it applies to information, data, privacy and safety within DIA. The role is responsible for designing learning modules, delivering training, and creating opportunities to raise awareness and promote good practices.

The Advisors role is to also encourage and support the effective use of key information management systems such as Cohesion (DIA's enterprise content management system) and other productivity tools, so DIA can realise the benefits and teams are supported to adopt new ways of working.

The Information and Safety group is an exciting and interesting part of the Department and functions include Health, Safety and Wellbeing, Security, Risk, Privacy, Resilience, Recovery and Information Management.  DIA is a great Department to work for with a fun culture and full of diverse people and skills.

What you will do to contribute includes:

  • Lead the development of new learning opportunities. These may take the form of classroom training, e-learning modules or self-help tools
  • Share the insights gained with managers, teams and subject matter experts so they can learn from experiences and apply it to their services
  • Champion new ways of working, including use of digital tools and promoting an open environment
  • Create opportunities to promote good practices and increase staff awareness of their responsibilities

What you will bring includes:

  • Working with enterprise content management systems such as SharePoint and collaboration and social media tools
  • Running pragmatic customer centric awareness raising campaigns
  • Ability to develop an understanding of privacy, information and data management, safety and security standards and practices in the NZ public sector
  • Ability to communicate technical concepts to a range of audiences

If this sounds like a challenge you would like to be involved in and also be part of an evolving team then we would very much like to hear from you.
