Job Description

Ministry for the Environment

Here at the Ministry for the Environment (MfE) we love innovation, and we love to do things differently.  We value our people and have created an agile work environment to help us mobilise our workforce to address the critical issues that need resolving.  Our people are from diverse backgrounds and work in flexible ways, but are all committed to our responsibility as primary advisors to the Government on the environment.

We tackle the hottest issues that impact on the environment, supporting New Zealand's prosperity – economic, social and cultural, without compromising our environment for future generations.

The Ministry's goal to make Aotearoa New Zealand the most liveable place in the world is a considerable responsibility and one we take seriously. 

The position

We are currently looking for a proven leader to bring their driven and proactive approach to our Business Finance team.  With a history of building high performance in your teams you will work alongside the CFO to inspire an established team to deliver the very best in financial systems and processes to better enable the business.

Your in depth knowledge and experience in a senior finance leadership role will see you add value from day one, and if that experience includes an understanding of government financial processes, even better!  You'll have experience in building a high performing team who don't see core finance functions as an end in itself but as a way to encourage people to think how they use resources to get the best outcome for New Zealanders.  If you are comfortable challenging the status quo, ‘joining the dots' and building positive relationships with a variety of stakeholders, this could be the role for you.

We value innovation and our clear purpose and behaviours (our Edge) underpin all that we do.  You will lead your team to bring these behaviours to life as they deliver quality financial advice and support services to the organisation.

Please note the successful applicant will be CA qualified.

Salary range from $134,477 to $181,940
