New leadership role, new opportunity
Te Tari Taiwhenua/Internal Affairs serves and connects people, communities and government to build a safe, prosperous and respected nation. We deliver value to New Zealanders in many ways – leading digital government, keeping Kiwis safe from harm, supporting strong and resilient communities, strengthening civic participation and governance, and fostering our cultural identity. In other words, we are all about helping to make New Zealand better for New Zealanders.
Digital Public Service Branch
Our public service is being called upon to deliver a unified, seamless and effective digital experience so that New Zealanders have the best possible experience of government. We are seeking experienced, strategic leaders to work with vision and influence to help enable and drive a strong, successful and connected digital public sector.
A digital public service
This work is critical to creating the platform for government to respond to people’s expectations for faster, more agile, accessible and integrated digital services.
The branch achieves this by working across the public service to connect, influence and support the system to transform and better respond to the ever-changing digital landscape. It also supports the Government Chief Digital Officer (GCDO), whose work supports a modern adaptive public service to have the skills, technology and data to operate at pace and to meet changing needs.
This branch has recently redefined its purpose and reorganised to better meet the needs of a digital public service. These roles are the result of this redesign.
Director System Settings and Design (secondment)
The Director System Settings and Design uses their expertise, experience and systems thinking to link the Strategy for a Digital Public Service and the system settings and design required to realise the strategy.
This includes ensuring system settings and design are translated into plans and standards, and technology options or issues are identified that the Government Chief Digital Officer (GCDO) may need to direct with agencies to effectively implement the strategy.
The Director System Settings and Design is part of the System Strategy and Initiatives Group leadership team. To ensure fresh thinking and perspective and to leverage relationships across the system, this position is filled through secondment.
To be successful in this role you will:
- have experience in a Chief Digital Officer, Chief Technology Officer or Chief Information Officer position in a public-sector organisation
- have excellent understanding of end-to-end processes, from system design and architecture to solution delivery and uptake
- be able to identify and understand the impact and implications of central directives on agencies
- be a highly influential, excellent communicator and facilitator of collective decision-making
be able to articulate a compelling future state to influence stakeholders across government.
