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.
The Manager Capability engages, develops, coaches and manages a multidisciplinary team of people with diverse backgrounds, experience and skills. Working with a Programme Delivery Manager they assign people to the activities in the work programme based on their capability, level of experience and development direction.
