What you will do

This is an exciting opportunity for a policy expert to use their strong analytical skills to integrate existing policy from across the three Services (Navy, Army and Air Force) under one NZDF equipment management policy.  In doing so, the Policy Analyst will use their excellent relationship management skills to facilitate agreement across the Services. 

You will lead a small team in the redesign and redevelopment of non-platform equipment management policy (non-platform equipment excludes ships and aircraft).

As a trusted advisor on policy development and documentation, the Policy Analyst will also contribute to a suite of interdependent initiatives and improvements being undertaken within DEMO to take NZDF equipment management to a higher maturity level. 

The ideal candidate will:

  • Be experienced in the development of policies within the public sector;

  • Be experienced in small team leadership.
