At Inland Revenue (IR), we're making the tax system simpler, more open and certain for New Zealanders.  We're currently undertaking a major change programme as we transform the NZ tax and social policy system. 


We'd love to hear Expressions of Interest from proven Communications Specialists who are open to fixed term or permanent roles based in Wellington.


The focus of your work would be for IR's internal audiences, from senior stakeholders through to the front line staff.


We're ideally looking to hear from people with the following skills:

  • Proven experience either delivering to, or creating and executing a communications plan and strategy.
  • Experience using the full range of channels including intranet and internet, events, newsletters, articles, presentations, videos, speeches and original media.
  • Outstanding written skills, including the ability to turn technical information into engaging readable material without losing the meaning.
  • Transformation or large programme experience gained within the public or private sector.
  • A proven ability to run the full lifecycle of communications projects, from initiation through to successful delivery, tying off any loose ends. We'll be looking to see your solid experience in creating communications plans, demonstrating attention to detail and rigour in your approach.
  • The ability to adapt your message to suit your audience; you'll be working with a broad range of people at Inland Revenue, from operational through to senior executives.
  • An ability to adapt quickly to new situations and requirements, and meet deadlines.
  • Creativity! You're curious and enjoy exploring the possibilities.
