Ko wai mātou | About us

At Waka Kotahi, the NZ 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 Aotearoa. 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.

The Transport Services business group’s aim is to provide, improve and maintain the land transport system to effectively enable transport services. Our focus is to design and deliver an integrated transport system for all New Zealanders.

You will also work closely with our finance and technology teams to align information and reporting to ensure we have one source of financial information that is fit for purpose. 

As a Senior Finance Delivery Analyst you will be familiar with how to structure data in SAP and set the direction for the reporting needed. You will understand and articulate performance information providing in-depth performance information insights and will be instrumental in enabling an accurate vision of how Waka Kotahi projects and spending is tracking against government expectation which will have direct impact on securing future funding.
