Emerging Technologies - Advisor Operational Policy at Civil Aviation Authority of NZ, Wellington
Mō tēnei tūranga mahi | About this role
The Civil Aviation Authority and the Aviation Security Service offer distinctively different career opportunities and embrace diverse talent. All jobs at the Authority contribute to ensuring safe and secure skies to help New Zealand fly.
The Civil Aviation Authority is the regulatory arm of our organisation and the Aviation Security Service is the nationwide provider for aviation security.
About the role
Operational Policy is a critically important facet of Emerging Technologies that requires expertise and input as many new and novel systems join the aviation system. They will coordinate their effort with colleagues across the certification units to ensure that the approach taken to enable entry into the aviation system is consistent with the current Authority Regulatory and Security Strategy.
- As a Project Advisor you will meet with innovators and operators, many of whom will be new to the aviation system
- You will invite them to share their vision of the future and the Concept of Operations for their system and to consider the regulatory pathways that may be open to them
- Throughout their journey you will support the certification teams, providing continuity, corporate knowledge and insight. This is where your project coordination skills will need to shine in collaborating, cooperating and coordinating both externally and internally, across the various CAA units involved in the Emerging Technologies Programme
- At the heart of what you do will be the need for safety and security to be the driving force behind your efforts
What we’re looking for
We are looking for a project advisor who can contribute specialist operational policy knowledge to help evaluate new concepts and support the development of new regulatory approaches.
Their challenge will be to balance this new enabling approach against the imperative of making sure that public safety and security remains paramount. They will test and challenge traditional aviation models and ways of thinking, as we facilitate the operation of new technologies. The project advisor roles are facilitation roles and they will not be involved in certification decision making.
- Be a strong team player who will relish in-person, daily face to face engagement with their colleagues, as we develop team processes, learn together and build capability
- Be comfortable working in an ambiguous environment where proposals don’t neatly fit within traditional aviation definitions or regulatory business units
- Lead and influence an integrated approach to delivering Emerging Technology Programme outputs in the achievement of programme outcomes
- Report on the important elements of the programme, including risks and issues
- Help build bridges and understanding between the emerging aviation technologies sector and the regulator
- Support the work of the certification staff through collaboration, cooperation and coordination
As a safety regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority exists to enable safe flight for social connections, and economic benefit for New Zealand. We believe in keeping people safe and secure in the air, enabling participation in the aviation system, and making a difference to New Zealand aviation.

The Authority embraces diversity and is committed to providing an inclusive environment where our people feel respected, safe, and valued for their unique contribution.
