About us | Ko wai mātou

At the NZ Transport Agency, it all starts with our people. The organisation’s performance and success depends on the people who choose to make this a great place to work and make a difference for Aotearoa. The Transport Agency has a strong future focus, understanding that new technologies and changing customer expectations mean the transport system we know today will not be the one we deliver in ten years time.

The Journey Management Centre team, part of our Transport Services group, delivers a transport system for safe and predictable journeys across the range of transport modes that people choose to use. They work to continuously improve how the transport system operates as a whole and ensures we are well prepared for responding to emergencies on a local and national scale. They have strong relationships with local groups and councils to ensure our plans align.


The opportunity |
Te Whiwhinga mahi

The Network Optimisation Analyst role will look beyond the day to day operations of the transport system, contributing network performance and intelligence analysis and advice on how the transport system is performing, as part of an integrated approach to improving customer experiences. The role supports the development of network operating plans, the identification of tactical improvements to existing transport networks and improvements to the day to day operations of the transport system as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

You will use your analytical skills and background in traffic engineering, transport planning or data analytics to look for ways to help solve customer issues in the short term, using an evidence-based approach.  You will contribute to ensuring that the System Optimisation team is evidence based as we look to solve network performance issues and understand if the changes we make have made a difference.
