Senior Business Analysts

Whakatairangatia ngā kete o te mātauranga ki te ao mārama!

E te tai whakarunga, e te tai whakararo – nau piki mai, nau kake mai ki te Mana Tohu Mātauranga o Aotearoa.


May the baskets of knowledge (education) be brought into the world of light.

We welcome one and all to join us at the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.

This is a fantastic opportunity for experienced Senior Business Analysts to work on an innovative and challenging initiative to transform New Zealand’s external examination system.  NZQA’s goal is to have NCEA examinations available online for schools and students.

We are looking for Senior Business Analysts to join our team and help us on this exciting journey.  Day to day you will be the bridge between the stakeholders in the business and the project team members.    You will provide advice and influence decisions to ensure we achieve our desired outcomes.

It may be the standard tasks of defining strategies, confirming business needs, conducting feasibility studies and producing high-level, detailed business models, but this is far from a standard project!

Candidates who have experience working on large scale business process improvement and/or transformation, particularly those with a focus on addressing issues of equity of access and outcomes will be well suited to these roles.

The positions are fixed term for up to two years to 30 June 2022.

NZQA is accountable for managing the New Zealand Qualifications Framework, administering the secondary school assessment system, independent quality assurance of non-university education providers, qualifications recognition and standard setting for some specified unit standards.   

NZQA is a te reo Māori learning organisation with commitments to equity and lifelong learning.  We prioritise the importance of understanding tikanga in building a culturally responsive workplace.  NZQA is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment for Māori staff and has an active Māori staff network, Te Kāhui Māori
