Protective Security Engagement Manager

Are you a skilled and professional relationship manager who has strong and effective customer service and interpersonal skills, with a passion for security?

The New Zealand Intelligence Community (NZIC) is currently recruiting for a Protective Security Engagement Manager in Wellington. You would be part of a small outgoing and progressive team that is making a tangible contribution to lifting the protective security capability of New Zealand.

As a member of our PSR Engagement Team, you will provide protective security advice to a diverse portfolio of government and private customers, enabling them to understand and adopt the PSR (www.protectivesecurity.govt.nz), and know where, when and how to access the support we offer.  

To be successful in this role you will have knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • ability to act proactively to influence decision-makers.
  • an awareness of, and interest in, current affairs and issues that affect New Zealand on a domestic and international level.
  • capacity and capability to interact with a wide spectrum of customers from a variety of backgrounds.
  • a good listener who can demonstrate responsiveness, and awareness of customer needs, issues and limitations.
  • strong verbal and written communication skills.
  • knowledge or understanding of AS/NZS ISO 31000:2018 risk management guidelines and HB 167:2006 Security risk management.
  • physical, information or personnel security management.

The portfolio focus will change from time to time as the PSR grows and the risk environment changes.  This will require you to foster relationships and manage internal and external stakeholder relationships that encourage customers to seek protective security advice.

You may already have knowledge or experience working within the security or risk management sectors but this is not a necessity, as your proven ability to translate concepts into practical advice will stand you in equally good stead. 

If this sounds like you and you can demonstrate the above requirements, we are keen to hear from you.

As well as interesting work, we also offer a range of benefits including competitive salary, professional development, free health insurance and on-site gym and fitness facilities. We also promise you will never have to take work home with you!

We are looking for an outstanding manager with a proven track record in leading and motivating staff, setting clear strategic direction, and engaging successfully with clients and customers.

Our values are central to everything we do.  We want to find people who are honest and courageous, curious and resilient, agile and self-aware.  And we want to know that they’ll encourage the same traits in those they lead.

As well as interesting work, we also offer a range of benefits including competitive salary, on-site gym and fitness facilities.  We also promise you will never have to take work home with you!
