New Zealand’s businesses and consumers have the potential to save energy, save on running costs and reduce their energy-related emissions through the use of efficient and clean technologies.

Our Standards and Regulations team works to improve the efficiency of the appliances we use, and houses we build and the ways we equip our businesses by establishing regulations, standards and labelling.  The team also ensures that New Zealand fulfils its role and optimises its investment in the Trans-Tasman regulation programme, working closely with the Australian government.

You will play an important role in programme design, providing thought leadership on how regulations, standards and other policies can be used to influence behavioural and technological change in the market.  You will lead the development of policy and regulatory changes, and lead the public and industry consultations on those changes.

You will have demonstrated programme/project management experience and a good understanding of New Zealand’s regulatory environment and machinery of government.   You will be an effective communicator and influencer.  We are also looking for proven experience in the effective budgeting, and an understanding of financial management principles.
