You can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and endless recreational activities that Invercargill has to offer with Central Otago, Fiordland and the Catlins on our doorstep. As New Zealand’s southernmost city we proudly encourage a good work-life balance and with direct flights, Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington are also within easy reach.

With a high level of confidence, our prosperous southern city is undergoing the biggest resurgence in its 166-year history. Invercargill’s reputation for being family-friendly is well deserved, with affordable housing, great schools, and amazing facilities.

Reporting to the Manager – Information Systems you will work with Council staff, managers and external stakeholders to analyse Council’s business services, processes and information needs. You will be an important part of our organisation, ensuring overall effectiveness and efficiency are achieved.

Your technical skills, excellent understanding of IT systems and ability to communicate with non-technical stakeholders and staff will allow you to be able to train and provide support effectively.

The essentials for the role are:

  • Knowledge of and practical experience working with business performance and reporting systems
  • Proven experience with process modelling and facilitating workshops
  • Excellent working knowledge of MS Office applications i.e. Word, Outlook, Excel

Knowledge of Local Government would also be a bonus.
