To do this, Fire and Emergency NZ’s Chief Executive is creating a new Strategic Leadership Team (SLT) comprising five new Deputy Chief Executive roles (DCEs) who will work together to provide collective organisational leadership to achieve organisational and sector objectives for Fire and Emergency NZ. The SLT will lead the organisation through a significant period of transformation, as well as guide important changes in organisational performance, culture and capability. Each DCE will need to think and act strategically and work collaboratively with their SLT colleagues and teams to deliver the organisation’s strategy. They will demonstrate drive and optimism and have a delivery-focus that will help to achieve ambitious outcomes.

The DCE Service Delivery will be responsible for leading the design and delivery of the core components of our services – Reduction, Readiness, Response and Recovery – that are delivered by 80% of our workforce – circa 10,000 employees and volunteers. This includes leadership of a unified operational command from a national level, through regions and sub-regions and to the front line. The DCE Service Delivery will assume the role of National Commander as and when required.

You will have significant operational senior leadership experience in a large and complex organisation and proven experience working in or with other emergency response organisations.

You will be able to demonstrate a collaborative style and have an ability to understand and work with diverse groups and individuals in a way that builds trust and respect.
