About the Organisation:
The Ministry for Primary Industries’ vision is New Zealand will be the world’s most sustainable provider of high-value food and primary products. We have developed an organisational strategy to ensure we have a clear path to follow that maximises our opportunities.
About the Directorate:
The Compliance Services Directorate sits in our Compliance & Governance Branch and is responsible for the operational delivery of Fisheries, Animal Welfare, and Food Compliance, and Investigations. The directorate is the centre of excellence and leadership in MPI for compliance across fisheries, animal welfare, bio-security, food, forestry, and other legislation that MPI administers.
As a Compliance Analyst with MPI’s Fisheries Compliance Services team, you’ll contribute to the sustainable management of New Zealand’s Fisheries resource. This is not an ordinary analyst role! You’ll spend some time in the field with the Fishery Officers and work closely with our other two offices in the Eastern and Lower North Island region. Fisheries Compliance concentrates on targeting risk using Intel led operational planning. Our compliance analyst’s products are integral to this targeted model and essential to achieving effective compliance and enforcement activity
Some key skills to bring with you for this role is an ability to interpret and analyse information, provide risk assessments, and deliver reports for a variety of groups in compliance and external to MPI. Experience performing intelligence summaries is important. We’re looking for someone who has experience identifying gaps in information and providing that direction to their team so that this intelligence can be gathered. You’ll be reactive as well as proactive, and you’ll love getting involved in the thick of things. We’ll also be looking for someone who has the ability to liaise with other agencies in order to make sure that the information we have is up to date.
