A unique opportunity to contribute to the evolution of one of New Zealand’s critical public service agencies through building and enabling capacity for safe and resilient operations and continuous improvement.
The Department of Corrections is one of New Zealand’s largest government departments. At its heart, it is focused on the pursuit of oranga – the wellbeing of people.
The Department, and its people, operate in high-risk dynamic, uncertain and complex environments that have the potential to disrupt their work and ability to achieve. The Organisational Resilience & Safety (OR&S) function is focused on enabling the Department’s workforce to participate, monitor, respond to and learn from normal operational work, operationally disruptive risks and unexpected events, including those where people could be harmed. The OR&S function will focus our ways of working by setting critical guidelines, streamlining procedures, providing stewardship of practice frameworks and enabling resilient operations that can rapidly adapt.
Ideal candidates will bring experience in strategic leadership and driving performance outcomes in risk, organisational resilience and/or health, safety and wellbeing leadership roles. They will be a facilitator of change, able to lead and inspire people within a high-risk 24/7 environment. They will bring knowledge of contemporary human-centred approaches to organisational resilience. This role can be based in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch, and will require frequent national travel.
