  • Do you want to work in an area helping some of New Zealand\'s most vulnerable individuals?

  • Are you resilient, deadline focused with a high level of attention to detail?

The Sensitive Claims Unit is a national unit that manages claims resulting from sexual violence or abuse. This is an integral role within our unit where you will be acting as the facilitator between the claimant, treatment provider, supplier and other agencies.


In your role, you will work alongside clients on their path to recovery. This involves having active conversations with clients and providers, as well as reviewing medical information and provider reports.

As part of the role you will be exposed to challenging information. ACC recognises this and as such, provides a supportive and collaborative culture as well as access to a variety of formal and informal support mechanisms, including training and professional supervision.


By ensuring that our client\'s claims are processed efficiently, you will be playing a key role in facilitating their progress and recovery.

  • Be either a New Zealand or Australian citizen or a New Zealand resident.

  • Confidence in the ability for you and your immediate family to pass comprehensive security and background checks.

  • Reliable transport to get to and from work for a 24/7 roster (Full license is not a must, but if you have a Restricted you need alternative plans for when you are working outside the hours of your license).

  • Clean credit record, or a payment plan in place for a minor default.

  • Willingness to undertake a full medical assessment (at your own expense) to assess your suitability for the role.

  • Business Unit:
  • Division:
  • Summary:

Strong ability to really understand our customers and their needs, understand the possibilities and drive innovation, lead the development of great products for New Zealanders sounds like someone who needs to be all ears.


Listen up, Digital Product Managers: we\'re looking for someone curious enough to read further into an ad like this, and smart enough to figure out that Omnibus Auribus pretty much means \'all ears\'. Because there really are only two jobs for those who are all ears: this one, where you need to have half of your ears pinned back, the other half to the ground, and your eyes open; or the other one, which is being a music critic - but that\'s for people who don\'t have the talent or charisma to be rock stars, and we reckon you have both and will become one when you take up this role.


You see, our organisation deals with lots and lots of people (seriously, lots) on a daily basis. And we want you to help us to help these people, and that\'s going to take an amazing level of communication, based on empathy - and that means being open to hearing from a lot of people, and the wider world. The thing is, large numbers of people generate huge amounts of data, enormous amounts of questions, and stupendous amounts of paperwork. It\'s our mission to make all of that easier and better for the incredible range of people who look to us for help every day. We\'re doing that through building New Zealand\'s best customer-facing digital capabilities at scale - and clearly that\'s not a job for those to whom cries of \'Better! Faster! More useful!\' fall on deaf ears.


As Digital Product Manager, your role will be to lead the strategy and development of ACC\'s Digital Products to deliver value to our customers.


You\'ll bring the following:



  • A desire to really understand our customers

  • An ability to paint a clear picture of the future

  • A passion for digital innovation


NB: You might think it\'s great being all ears, but spare a thought for those who really do have more than the usual complement of body parts. Take dogs, for instance - yes, dogs. Did you know that dogs can\'t dance? It\'s because they all have two left feet. But we don\'t care if you can dance or not. All we care about is that you\'ll apply for this role. We can always teach you to dance later.


Another NB: I suppose if you did have more than two ears you could probably be a simultaneous headphone tester or maybe the person who reviews those cotton-wool sticks people stick in their ears. Imagine that. Or imagine applying for this role.
