Do you have a head for data, and a heart for people?

The Environmental Protection Authority is charged with safeguarding New Zealand’s environment and way of life. We’re looking for an experienced Human Resource professional to help us in this work by keeping us at the leading edge of people management. In this dual-focus role, you’ll provide expert advice to support our highly-skilled workforce, and use HR data to tell our people story and influence change.

Make history with us

The Environmental Protection Authority, or EPA, is at the forefront of some of the biggest issues facing New Zealand. Our rivers, our mountains, our forests, our wildlife, and the New Zealand way of life, all depend on the decisions we make at the EPA. The impact of our work will last for decades, even centuries.


You will work with our expert teams – from scientists to lawyers, communicators to cultural advisors – as we work together toward the vision of an environment protected, enhancing our way of life and the economy.   


We value your knowledge and experience

This is the role for you if you love using data to tell a story, and to influence change. You will spend half of your time as an HR business partner, providing dedicated support to  internal work groups. The other half will be data and systems-focussed, devoted to looking after our remuneration, performance and reporting processes, and oversight of our outsourced payroll service.

To succeed as an HR business partner, you will need to provide excellent support and advice for all the HR needs of our core business group, covering all end-to-end HR.

As the person in charge of the organisation’s remuneration, performance and reporting processes, you’ll need to be adept at using data to tell our people story, so we can use the information to guide our organisational growth.

SAP Success Factors is our core People system which is integrated with MYOB PayGlobal with payroll processing outsourced. Effective systems are key to our success and this role needs to works closely with the HR Business Partner Systems and with external system providers to ensure accurate corporate data. You will need to be a system champion helping us embed our systems throughout our work.


What we’re looking for

The role is focused on delivering a programme of work concentrated on annual remuneration reviews processes, performance management and end to end HR reporting, whilst partnering with our core business group. Do you have:

  • 5+ years in a HR generalist position or specialisation in remuneration/payroll and reporting
  • Experience with HR information and payroll systems – specific experience with SAP SuccessFactors is an advantage
  • Experienced in HR account management with a highly customer-centric approach, guided by HR practical processes and frameworks
  • Experience in leading and developing new HR initiatives/process improvement and change management 
  • Knowledge and understanding of machinery of government processes and systems
  • Up-to-date knowledge and experience in the application of New Zealand employment legislation
  • Relevant HR tertiary qualification or equivalent experience in HR/Psychology/Business/Payroll


What we can offer you

This is a permanent full-time position based in our central city offices on Lambton Quay. You’ll be joining a close-knit and supportive People & Capability team who are focused on achieving our busy work plan.

The EPA is great place to work, made up of friendly people with ambitious goals. We value our employees, and take pride in offering a positive working environment, lots of professional development, and in supporting work-life balance.

Some of the benefits of working with us include on-site weekly Māori language lessons and regular Te Ao Māori workshops, as well as frequent talks on a range of topics from fascinating external speakers. We also have a variety of staff groups, from gardening to adventure running, that cater to the diverse interests of our staff.

In addition to these great benefits at work, we also offer our staff extra leave on top of the standard requirements, employer kiwisaver contribution on top of base salary and promote a healthy work life balance.
