Job Description

ACC has a unique role in improving New Zealanders quality of life. We help New Zealanders look out for themselves and others to avoid accidents - and when accidents do happen, we support them to recover.

The Customer Engagement team is looking for a collaborative, experienced Senior Communications and Engagement Advisor to join us till end of June 2020 to be a trusted consultant and advisor to our stakeholders. You'll be the type of person who relishes diving into work that matters - always looking for new and better ways to get the job done, even when dealing with ambiguity. A lateral thinker, no one can accuse you of getting stuck in a box and 'technically competent' goes without saying.

We want someone who can plan and manage a varied workload, make things happen and be a champion for great, honest, real and credible communication. You'll be skilled at working with leaders, know how to influence and able to build rapport with your eyes closed.

What we are looking for from you to be successful in this role:

  • Experienced advising, partnering with, and influencing a variety of stakeholders
  • Able to distil complex ideas into easily understood narratives
  • Experienced managing the development and delivery of communications strategies and plans appropriate for varied audiences
  • Capable of providing proactive communications advice to a broad range of stakeholders
  • Able to demonstrate measurable outcomes in your work
  • Highly collaborative, flexible and can work effectively when prioritising tasks to meet competing deadlines
  • Happy to step in and help others when needed
  • Tertiary qualification in communications, marketing or business is preferred

For all that you bring, we think we can offer quite a bit in return. For a start, we are a passionate, fun loving team who care about each other and the work we do. There is plenty of scope in our roles to add value, and when it comes to opportunities at ACC, the world is your oyster.

At ACC, we recognise that diversity, inclusion and accessibility is important to our business. ACC's Māori Strategy Whāia Te Tika provides the foundation for delivering better outcomes in a kaupapa Māori, culturally appropriate and responsive way for current and future Māori and diverse employees. ACC holds itself to a philosophy of Tika enabling us to create an environment of involvement, respect and connection with the communities where we work - benefitting individual employees and all our clients across New Zealand.

Applications will run through to Wednesday, 11 December 2019, but please note that if an ideal candidate is found during this time we will move forward with screening and interviewing sooner.

If you have any questions about the role, please contact

Applications will only be accepted when formally submitted through our ACC career website.
