  • Senior level opportunity – large & complex enterprise
  • Professional challenge with a commercial focus
  • Newly created role

Our organisational strategy Hōkai Rangi was launched in August 2019, focussing on six key areas for change. It is bold, transformative and will span generations to come. As a result of our large transformational change, we have this newly established senior position designed to lead and manage our strategic, large or complex procurements.

Corrections, with $1.8b annual opex and a significant capital programme, is one of NZ’s largest enterprises with operations dependent on investment in infrastructure, technology and specialist services. A significant procurement pipeline will demand a leader who can respond to exacting business needs and lead a team of experts to market. Translating our purpose and outcomes to build effective market engagement will also be a key mark of success in this role. 

To be successful in this role you will need extensive experience at a senior level in leading large procurements in a similar complex environment.  You will be known for your expert planning skills for complex procurements and your ability to shape and execute high value transactions.

For this key role reporting to the Director Procurement, we are looking for someone with the following skills and attributes:

  • Excellent analytical and conceptual thinking skills
  • Superior stakeholder relationship management skills
  • Demonstrated ability to proactively generate market engagement
  • Exceptional commercial acumen
  • High customer focus in responding to demanding business requirements

Our values underpin all that we do at Corrections. Rangatira, Manaaki, Wairua, Kaitiaki and Whānau are more than just words to us – we seek to recognise and reward activities that demonstrate alignment to these values and expect our leaders to promote this effort.
