  • Provide strategic and operational reporting information to inform data driven decision making.
  • What we need

  • who is an extraordinary communicator;
  • who is comfortable working in complex stakeholder landscapes;
  • who is able to translate evaluation insights into practical and tangible change recommendations at the workplace, or at the operational edge;
  • who is experienced in translating cross-sector best practice into the Defence context and situation;
  • who can be an active contributor to cross-Directorate working groups;
  • who is a systems thinker;
  • who is an experienced leader with well-developed people management skills with a track record of developing capability to provide ongoing development;
  • who can travel within New Zealand to visit your team at other NZDF camps and bases.
  • Successful application will need to have a minimum Bachelor’s Degree in Evaluation, Leadership or Tertiary Teaching Assessment (or very similar) AND 5+ years experiences leading training/education evaluation in a large and complex environment.
    If you tick these boxes, please review the position description, and if this role excites you, we would love to hear from you!
    Please note: When you submit your application via our online platform, please include with your cover letter, as a separate page, a one page infographic you have personally developed that helps communicate evaluation results.

    This role will commence as soon as possible, so start the new year with this great opportunity.
