About NZ Post:
We have a long history – and a great future. Our eyes are firmly on the future, and making sure we bring the best of it to our customers and communities.  There's lots of growth and change happening here and we need you to contribute to a team culture that is committed and engaged in achieving the highest quality results for our customers. You will not only enjoy working in an agile, expanding environment – you will thrive in one!

So, what will I be doing?
This is an opportunity to work together with our Group Risk Manager and dedicated team of experts to provide advice, support and professional services to the business.

You will be enabling our people to service our customers, while working to practically mitigate operational, financial, legal/regulatory and reputational risk.
You'll do this by:

  • assisting the business to implement the risk management framework
  • educating the business on effective risk management and control assurance
  • maintaining NZ Post's risk profile
  • undertaking independent audits of financial, operational and technology processes and provide control advice to management and staff.

What makes this role great?
This role is all about getting away from your desk, networking with our people, and partnering with senior stakeholders across the business. You will be constantly discovering and developing your own knowledge and skills while producing meaningful results for both business managers and at the executive level. 
This is your chance to use your strong analytical skills, balanced with pragmatism and common sense, to create tangible business recommendations in an exciting, growing industry. We want you to feel a part of our modern and collaborative team, to get involved and to have fun!

In return, we'll give you lots of scope for growth, flexibility, a supportive environment, and the chance to make a significant difference in an organisation undergoing transformational change.

A bit about you:
Due to the nature of the work we do, key to your success will be your ability to engage and build effective, trusted relationships with people at all levels. Your professionalism, inter-personal savvy and skill in presenting an argument for change and improvement will be highly valued.
Of course, you will need to be financially commercially savvy, and have a solid background in the provision of internal and/or risk management services in a professional services firm or large commercial organisation.

You can adapt your approach to our constantly changing work environment. We do need you to be CA or CIA qualified and/or have an accreditation in risk management.
