Our work is secret, but the reason for our success isn't. It's our people. And we're just like you. We're ordinary people. But together, we're doing extraordinary things to protect New Zealand and New Zealanders.

While we're ordinary people, we're not all the same. We welcome diversity, in all its forms, in fact we consider it a strength.

We're seeking a high-performing and self-motivated expert in risk and business continuity to provide our senior managers with advice on management of strategic risks and opportunities and to ensure we have fit-for-purpose business continuity planning.
Day to day you'll be working with others to implement and manage the business continuity plan for the GCSB. As part of this, you will be planning and executing business continuity exercises and reporting to senior management on overall preparedness across the GCSB. You will be our expert on risk and assurance, ensuring that senior management have a solid understanding of strategic risks facing the organisation and the support to manage these effectively. You will also work with the Risk & Assurance Committee to improve risk management and organisational performance, providing secretarial support along the way. The role will involve engagement with various areas of the organisation, as you support and guide all staff on risk identification and management.
If you have demonstrated experience working in a relevant risk management position with a proven understanding of current risk management methodology, significant experience developing and testing Business Continuity Plans, along with the ability to apply in-depth analysis to complex issues then look no further.
