About the role
As the manager you will lead the Firearms to deliver on an ambitious work programme. You will also contribute as a member of the policy leadership team to the leadership and direction of the wider Policy and Partnerships Group.
The Firearms Policy team focuses on policy issues related to the Arms Act 1983 and the Arms Regulations 1992. The team’s objective is to improve public safety by stopping firearms falling into the wrong hands, and reducing the risk of anyone becoming victims of firearms crime.
The team has an extensive and on-going legislative and regulatory programme of work, stemming from significant changes to the Arms Act enacted since 2019, as well as considering how to best regulate new and innovative firearms products being developed internationally. Firearms safety is a significant priority for the Government. You will establish a key relationship with the Minister’s Arms Advisory Group and with Police’s regulatory business unit, the National Organised Crime Group and other operational teams.
You’ll lead a team that provides policy advice and leads legislative and regulatory changes while remaining firmly connected to Police operational demands and practice. The environment is fast paced and dynamic, and you’ll have the opportunity to advise a senior Minister on key issues that make a real difference to the safety of New Zealanders. And you will see your policy work move rapidly into operational practice and how it lands in communities.
Takohanga Matua - Key Accountabilities:
- Grow, support and shape the team, guiding it to the next level.
- Lead, advise, and influence decision making on key issues
- Maintain collaborative relationships with our operational partners
