About us

At the 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 New Zealand.

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.  Building the culture and capability to embrace that changing environment is critical to delivering our strategic commitment of “great journeys to keep NZ moving”.

The Investment & Finance group provides critical checks and balances to the Transport Agency’s decisions and services – to ensure plans and investments represent best value for money.

The Role

You will be supporting the team and ensuring that financial information effectively informs business decisions across the Agency (and more specifically the property team). The core roles of this position include financial and management reporting for the property team, the provision of financial advice and general support to the property team. In addition, the Property Business Accountant supports the budgeting system and is the main point of contact on the Agency’s key contracts for the Business Accounting team

You will be naturally curious, enjoy building strong relationships and excited by the opportunity to make a real difference.   

What you will bring:

  • Strong experience in public or private sector financial / management accounting.
  • Subject matter expertise in corporate budgeting, forecasting and management reporting.
  • Experience in developing strong relationships and business engagement with internal business leaders
  • 3 years + experience in a role with comparable scale and breadth
  • Ideally experience with accounting for properties
  • Ideally experience using SAP


  • Tertiary Accounting or Finance qualifications or in a relevant discipline or equivalent experience
  • CA-ANZ membership or international equivalent

This is an opportunity to diversify your skills and take your career to the next level. Our environment is innovative and forward thinking and what we do makes a difference to New Zealanders everyday.  If you are looking for a new challenge then we would love to hear from you!
