Looking to the future, to an ambitious enterprise strategy and to changes in the world of work, it's clear that what ACC needs from People and Culture is changing, and the Group is reorientating itself to deliver on these opportunities.
About the role:
Our Principal Advisors are thought leaders focused on the two to five year horizon, responsible for deeply understanding ACC's business strategy and working through communities of practice to help implement the strategy from a people perspective. They will use their understanding of our strategic direction and their significant subject matter expertise to provide advice that supports development of a new People Strategy and its associated plans. Our Principal Advisors are expert facilitators and influencers who communicate clearly and concisely using plain language. They help translate high level strategic thinking into pragmatic people-oriented solutions that our senior leaders can easily support, our People and Culture Group can implement, and our people can adopt. Our Principal Advisors are likely to bring applied experience of embedding the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi or using a Te Ao Māori approach to their work.
This role is new. It's an integral part of a significant shift within the People & Culture Group and an exciting time to join a newly formed team.

- Significant experience in organisational development roles focused on leadership, or experience across a number of large-scale change programmes that have involved shifting the dial from a leadership perspective
- Confident facilitation skills, able to run workshops, focus groups and development cohorts
