  • Communications opportunity with a difference!
  • Are you up for a challenge and a significant boost to your career?
  • Wellington-based role within fast-paced Business Transformation Programme

Are you a Communications Advisor or PR Account Executive who has a broad base of experience with a desire to challenge yourself in a very meaningful programme environment?  We are looking for a talented person to join our team through to 30 September 2020 with option to extend.

There is no better time for you to join Inland Revenue.  We're currently undertaking a major change programme, to make tax simpler, more open and more certain for New Zealanders and transform the way we do business.  From a communications perspective, we are delivering a wide range of communications to a diverse range of stakeholders – the general public, businesses, staff and our senior leadership team to name just a few. 

You'll be able to apply your abilities across a wide range of communications functions immediately, including audio visual, intranet and social media.  Naturally your written communication skills will be exceptional, and you'll be known for your versatility and ability to come up to speed quickly when faced with new information or challenges. You'll help get the job done by building strong relationships across the organisation with people at all levels.

You'll report to the Business Transformation Communications and Stakeholder Management Lead but will receive guidance and direction from the Senior Advisors.  You will enjoy more autonomy and ownership as you gain the experience and comfort operating within this fast-paced environment.

Some of your responsibilities will include:

  • developing content for Business Transformation's channels including newsletters, scripts, presentations, the intranet and internet
  • developing plans to support engagement with key stakeholders to support the BT Account Managers  
  • taking an active role in managing the production of communications and business engagement videos, working with professional AV companies and using IR equipment to create simple tactical videos
  • managing and updating the Intranet and Internet so familiarity with Intranet programmes and SharePoint is an advantage
  • providing support for events run by the Business Transformation programme

This is your chance to grow and thrive in a Business Transformation environment that is of a scale and significance unmatched in NZ right now.  You can expect a challenge but also have fun in a supportive team setting.

To apply, please click on ‘apply' and submit a cover letter along with your CV outlining the skills, knowledge and experience you can bring to the position.
