  • Summary:

If the Intelligence Community helps protect the people of New Zealand, who helps protect the Intelligence Community? 

Keeping New Zealand and New Zealanders safe is an important job and fortunately, New Zealand has a committed group of people doing this day after day. Sometimes those committed people are so focused on their jobs that they forget to think about themselves. 

The New Zealand Intelligence Community (NZIC) is currently recruiting for a Personnel Security Advisor in Wellington. You would be part of a small dedicated team with a big role; from discrete one-on-ones with staff to presenting across government, we strive to provide the highest quality personnel security advice and expertise in New Zealand. 

To help support and inform them, the NZSIS is looking for individuals who have an interest in human behaviour, a focus on attention to detail and an enquiring mind to join our Wellington-based Personnel Security team.

If you are looking for the opportunity to take on a new challenge, have a drive for personal development and a natural ability to build rapport with others, are comfortable working with delicate information and don’t mind being thrown the odd curve ball, then we may have a job for you.

The upmost professionalism, integrity and discretion are required.

If this sounds like you and you can demonstrate the above requirements, we are keen to hear from you.

As well as interesting work, we also offer a range of benefits including competitive salary, professional development, free health insurance and on-site gym and fitness facilities. We also promise you will never have to take work home with you!
