Salary Range: $85,829.00 – $116,123.00
Job Requisition ID 12691
The Asset Recovery Unit’s primary roles are to deny criminals the opportunity to benefit from their offending or the ability to re-invest in criminal activity. Police do this by taking away their “ill-gotten gains” and making sure that crime really doesn’t pay. International trends among Law Enforcement Agencies indicate that recovering assets is often more successful and may be a bigger deterrent than the criminal prosecution. That trend is being mirrored in New Zealand.
The Criminal Proceeds (Recovery) Act 2009 is a relatively new piece of legislation based on civil court processes. You will be encouraged to use your initiative and explore ways of using the Act to recover criminal gains.
You will be part of a successful team based in Wellington. You will be joining a team consisting of two current Forensic Accountants and two Financial Analysts.
ARU are looking for a Forensic Accountant who can manage reactive and proactive investigations and financial analysis. Work together with investigation teams both within Police and from external partner agencies, prepare and execute production orders, assist with effective interviews, and interact with members of the local and international financial business community.
Internal and external partnerships are a key focus and the successful applicant can expect to be heavily involved in investigations associated with multiple departments within Police and our external partners.
