  • Summary:


  • Better regulations are the better for the industry and better for the country.

  • Lead from the front and help MBIE realise its ambition to be a world-leading building system regulatory steward


 


Ensuring that the building regulatory system supports New Zealand\'s social and economic aspirations is a very big undertaking, but at MBIE such challenges are what drives us. It\'s a place where if you see an opportunity to make things better and to enhance the system, you\'re empowered to act on that opportunity.


 


The Building Sector Performance Branch (BSP) is the Government\'s lead advisor on the building regulatory system and we want to be world-leading.

Right now we need a genuine regulatory heavyweight to join us on a journey of business transformation, the kind that will be felt throughout the building industry and beyond.  What\'s important is your desire to shape and impact the core regulatory system and while building sector experience is desirable, it is not essential. 


 


As the Team Leader Design and Implementation you will lead and manage a team of Business Analysts and Advisors responsible for a range of operational policy functions including:



  • Testing feasibility of policy options

  • System design and business processes

  • Cost benefit analysis

  • Implementation planning


 


We are looking for someone who has:



  • A strong understanding of regulatory frameworks and levers,

  • Experience in building and leading teams through change 

  • Experience working with business process design focusing on the end user (preferably within government)

  • Knowledge and experience in best practice project management methodologies

  • Significant experience in operational policy, research or advisory work

  • Team Leadership experience including developing capability and delivering a team work plan


 


This is a challenging and exciting leadership role in a branch that is undergoing a significant transformation. It\'s a unique opportunity to make your mark and help shape policy that has an impact on all New Zealanders.
