Be part of the biggest reform of the building regulatory system in the last 15 years.  Play your part in shaping one of New Zealand’s leading sectors that employs 250,000 workers and is set to contribute more than $41 billion to New Zealand’s economy in 2023.

The Building System Assurance (BSA) team is responsible for a range of building regulatory functions involving regulatory compliance, monitoring and assurance, and service delivery.  These functions include monitoring of Building Consent Authorities and Territorial Authorities, building products assurance, oversight of CodeMark as the building product certification scheme, and assessment of MultiProof applications.

Following our recent review, we are developing and growing our team to implement our new strategy and help us achieve excellence as a regulator in the building system. As part of this, we have established a project to implement an ICT solution to support our new way of working. This is your opportunity to be part of this exciting journey from the beginning, helping us to build a positive, dynamic and results focussed team.  


About the role

Reporting to the Manager, Business Systems and Operations, the Senior Business Systems Advisor is responsible for representing BSA on the project team and supporting the business to maintain and improve interim solutions until the new system is in place.

You will work collaboratively with the project team to help ensure the successful implementation of the ICT solution. In practice this means acting as a conduit between the business and the project, directing them to the right people and assisting with information gathering.  You will also support the implementation of agreed solutions.

You will work collaboratively with the BSA team to develop a thorough understanding of how the team’s present and future business needs can be met and supported by ICT systems and platforms.  You will be the go-to person in the BSA team for ICT-related issues, queries, improvements and tactical solutions.

You will have a good understanding of technology and data related activities, and experience working as part of a project team. You will be able to confidently represent the business and its strategic goals in the project context, communicating business needs and ensuring the business is kept appropriately informed. Your ability to identify and implement opportunities for improvement, and to champion change will be key for success in this role.

You will build strong and positive relationships with internal and external stakeholders, lead and champion good practice relating to ICT within the team, communicate effectively to both technical and non-technical stakeholders, and take a long term view of the use of ICT solutions for BSA.

This is a two year fixed term/secondment opportunity.
