Publications Officer at Parliamentary Counsel Office, Wellington - Wairarapa
Mō tēnei tūranga mahi | About this role
The Parliamentary Counsel Office (PCO) provides legislative drafting services to the Government and publishes official legislation online and in hard copy.
The PCO is committed to contributing to Great Law for New Zealand. As part of that commitment, the Publications team is responsible for providing specialist legislation publication services to ensure easy access to New Zealand's legislation (www.legislation.govt.nz).
We are looking for a motivated and experienced team player to join our Publications team.
The work of the Publications Unit includes: preparing legislation for publication (including Bills for Parliament and secondary legislation for Executive Council), incorporating and checking amendments into principal legislation (ie, producing consolidations), updating legislation details, and providing assistance and service to other teams within the PCO and external agencies.
Experience with legislation and knowledge of the legislative process would be helpful, but is not essential. Publications Officers must be able to work flexibly as part of a team to tight deadlines, have a high level of concentration and attention to detail, and be able to establish and maintain good working relationships with others. Good communication skills are essential for liaising with staff at Parliament and other external agencies. Most of the work is carried out using an in-house drafting and publishing system and you will need to be comfortable with using technology and carrying out most of your work within that environment. You will need to be able to be part of a team roster for evening shifts on Parliamentary sitting days (2 pm to 10 pm Tuesday to Thursday of sitting weeks).
Please see www.pco.govt.nz/current-vacancies for the job description and how to apply.
Applications will only be accepted if they include the PCO application form and a letter of application sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications close: 8am on Tuesday 8 February 2022
