Job Description

  • Are you a talented Senior Analyst looking to take the next step in your career?
  • Do you have a passion for policy work and want to help shape the future of New Zealand's financial policy frameworks?
  • Do you want to be part of an enthusiastic and high performing cross-agency team?


The Treasury is the New Zealand Government's lead economic and financial advisor. Our vision is to be a world-leading Treasury working towards higher living standards for New Zealanders.

We have an exciting opportunity for a talented and high-achieving Senior Analyst to join the Reserve Bank Act Review Team. This is a key government reform to modernise the Reserve Bank's financial stability policy frameworks, as well as its governance and accountability settings, to make sure they support a well performing financial system. Policy development is already underway with further public consultations planned in 2019 and with legislation expected to be introduced later in 2020.

You'll be joining a joint team of passionate and curious individuals from both the Reserve Bank and Treasury that has been tasked with carrying out the Review. You will have the opportunity to influence and develop the Review's recommendations, including providing advice to senior managers and Ministers, and take these reforms through from policy development to legislation.

A successful candidate will already have a significant breadth and depth of ideally 5+ years' analytical experience as well as:

  • Strong written and verbal skills, with the ability to communicate complex issues and concepts clearly and succinctly
  • Sound analytical skills and an ability to think critically about complex policy issues
  • Experience working with others to develop agreed solutions
  • The ability to manage a range of internal and external relationships and to influence
  • Experience leading people, projects, or policy processes
  • An organised, proactive mind-set, with the ability to take ownership for their work


Experience working on financial policy issues would be highly advantageous and experience working on previous legislative reform processes would also be desirable.

We can offer 

  • Interesting and stimulating work with opportunities to have a positive impact on the lives of New Zealanders.
  • A commitment to providing work and training opportunities that support your development and career aspirations.
  • The opportunity to work for an organisation that values diversity and inclusion and encourages a positive work/non-work balance with flexible work arrangements


The Treasury values diversity amongst its employees and encourages a positive work/non-work balance with flexible work arrangements so talk to us about flexible work options. We are also happy to consider candidates interested in a secondment or fixed term opportunity.

Applications close Monday 6 May.  All applications must be made online.
