To achieve its outcomes, the Electoral Commission has recently reshaped its regional footprint to create a new region encompassing; Northland, the Bay of Plenty, East Cape, Waikato and Taupō.  It does not include the greater Auckland area.

We are looking for an exceptional people leader to lead the Registrar of Electors' offices in this new region into the 2020 General Election, and beyond.

It is a busy role that will fully utilize your people leadership and relationship management skills as you lead your team to deliver critical outputs, while building and maintaining key community partnerships across your region.

We are flexible on where you may be located within the region, or in one of our locations in the greater Auckland area.  You will work hand-in-glove with the other three Regional Managers and be a part of the Enrolment and Community Engagement Operations Leadership Team.

  • An exceptional people leader, with a proven track record of leading high performing people and teams
  • Passionate about engaging with communities to build and maintain mutually valuable partnerships across the full spectrum of electors in your region – particularly Māori, Pacific peoples, new New Zealanders and youth
  • An excellent communicator, with the ability to work across boundaries to build and maintain excellent internal relationships
  • Experienced in managing remotely
  • Able to work well under pressure to meet deadlines
  • Prepared to travel regularly

What it's like to work for us:

The Commission provides a diverse learning and development environment, as well as being a family friendly employer.  We offer a competitive salary and flexible working conditions.  The salary range for the position is $88,817 - $120,165.
