  • Summary:

Does the sound of working in a dynamic and interesting environment while making a real contribution to the security of New Zealand appeal to you?

This role contributes to setting and implementing intelligence security policies and procedures, including the active and accurate management of briefing records, the certification of that information to partner agencies to facilitate visits, and the provision of advice to ensure that GCSB’s classified information is protected.  The work is fast-paced, and we’re looking for someone who’s energetic, flexible, pays attention to detail and enjoys working in a team environment.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A good sound knowledge of national and international intelligence communities;
  • The ability to relate to staff at all levels of the community, and to work competently with them to achieve the best outcomes for them and for the Intelligence Directorate;
  • Familiarity with common IT systems and the enthusiasm to learn new ones; and
  • The ability to work at pace, and maintain attention to detail.

As well as interesting work we offer a range of benefits including professional development, free health insurance, on-site gym and fitness facilities and a great work life balance with you never having to take work home.

We support diversity in the workplace and believe it is our first line of defence. We encourage all parts of the community to consider a career with us.
