About us | Ko wai mātou

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.


The opportunity | Te Whiwhinga mahi

The purpose of these roles is to work closely with senior decision makers and our external partners, to provide clear and consistent advice at all stages of the Transport Agency’s Business Case Approach. As the Principal Investment Advisor, you will be supporting and enabling our partners to plan and deliver integrated transport solutions.

As the Principal Investment Advisor, you will draw on your exceptional communication skills to provide assurance that investments are value for money and meeting the Agency’s strategic objectives. This is a great opportunity to own and support the transport investment assurance process, and to lead and drive good business practices.  We are looking for a confident self-starter who thrives on working collaboratively to achieve successful outcomes.


About you | Ko koe tēnei

To be successful in this role, you will bring:

  • Demonstrated strategic thinking ability
  • Experience in the evaluation of sector activities in government organisations to achieve value for money and national outcomes
  • Knowledge of local authority planning for transportation and investment decision making processes
  • Ability to work strategically within a national context
  • Strong analytical and interpretation skills
  • Ability to bring together multiple perspectives
  • Demonstrated stakeholder management experience
  • Establishing relationships with local government
  • Proven mentoring experience is desirable
