Our work is secret, but the reason for our success isn’t. It’s our people. And we’re just like you. We’re ordinary people. But together, we’re doing extraordinary things to protect New Zealand and New Zealanders.
While we’re ordinary people, we’re not all the same. We welcome diversity, in all its forms, in fact we consider it strength.
Join us and become part of a Community where your skills, experiences and ideas are valued and you’re encouraged to be curious, to share your ideas and of course, have fun along the way.
If you’re up for the challenge, become Beyond Ordinary with us.
This is an opportunity for someone who understands the ways in which strong leadership can influence successful outcomes for an organisation. As the Assistant Director Access, you will be responsible for the implementation of GCSB and directorate strategies, the development of business plans, and the management of key partnerships and oversight of capability developments projects.
You will be responsible for ensuring that the signals intelligence team are clear on what needs to be achieved and how they will be supported to make it happen.
You are someone who can identify the strengths of their people and leverage these to build and develop highly engaged leaders and teams. You will have experience managing significant programmes of work with a demonstrated ability to quickly build credible relationships with stakeholders. This will be supported by your ability to authoritatively and tactfully represent viewpoints when engaging with those around you.
While a broad knowledge and understanding of SIGINT processes and the intelligence community overall is desirable we are more interested in the strategic leadership skills you would bring with you to the role.
We want our people to succeed, whatever success looks like for them. Join us and we’ll give you significant professional development opportunities aimed at taking your career in the direction you want it to go. You won’t stand still with us as we’re committed to ongoing learning and continuous improvement.
We’re also committed to your wellbeing. We want our people to be the best they can be, both at work and at home. We offer our people comprehensive benefits, access to staff networking groups, flexible working and great work-life balance.
If you want to love coming to work each day, let us help you become Beyond Ordinary.
