Fire and Emergency New Zealand was set up under new legislation in July 2017, combining 40 urban and rural fire services and 14,000 people. We became one national emergency management organisation to keep New Zealanders, their property and our unique environment safe.
We respond to structure and vegetation fires. And while the core role of firefighters is to put out fires, it is much more than that.
We rescue people involved in transport accidents or other incidents, urban search and rescue, deal with dangerous substances, weather events and natural disasters.
Our firefighters educate communities to prepare for emergencies, prevent and mitigate them, and teach them how to recover more quickly when they do happen.
We also assist other agencies in the response to medical emergencies, maritime incidents and vehicle accidents.
Nothing is more important to us than our people – he waka eke noa.
We are looking for someone to support us in our development of process and frameworks to achieve the planned improvement targets in our maturity roadmap.
You’ll have the technical know-how to shape documents that are easy to read and provide technical detail. Your communication skills will be first class and allow you to present complex information to your stakeholders, in a way that’s pragmatic and sensible. You will also be driven to see what you produce applied practically to all types of projects.
We will have experience creating frameworks for project management, and ideally you will bring with you some training and Business Analysis skills.
This role is central to formulation of the good practice delivery approach that we are adopting as part of four year roadmap of improvement.
Much of this information is available and you’ll be responsible for gathering and building a first-class body of knowledge that can be applied by professional project managers and beginners alike.
We are seeking someone who has a drive to turn out clear guidance for project users of all experience. The products will include training and guidance that is practically oriented to Fire and Emergency staff and enables them to successfully deliver their projects and associated benefits.
If you think you have what it takes to join us on our journey, we would love to hear from you.
