  • Summary:

Lifting national consistency and application of New Zealand’s Coordinated Incident Management System (CIMS)

  • Do you want to help shape the direction of system-level work to strengthen emergency management?
  • Have you worked at several response levels and across multiple hazard types?
  • Are you experienced in the use of New Zealand’s Coordinated Incident Management System (CIMS)?

The main purpose of this role is to lead the development of the CIMS 3rd edition guidelines.  The guidelines will be used across the NZ emergency management sector to lift the consistency and quality of CIMS practice and are key to lifting sector performance.  

If incident management is your thing, this is your chance to make an impact at the centre of the thinking.  You will be working with those who are increasing sector professionalism and influencing strategic direction.  Your input and experience will help shape the direction of the system-level work that is taking place to support consistent CIMS practice and lift capability across the sector.

The guidelines will be a national resource, covering incident, local, regional and national response levels so working knowledge and experience across several response levels and across multiple hazard types is important.  You will also bring an understanding of what good practice looks like across CIMS functions and the ability to capture and document that for others. 

Further information on the ‘Enabling consistent CIMS practice project’ can be found on

This is a fixed term /secondment for 18 months to cover the development of the guidelines.
