Fixed Term (1 year) / Fulltime 

Kia hiwa rā!

We are looking for an adaptable and passionate Business Analyst to join our new programme of Whānau as First Navigators.  The Whānau as First Navigators programme is both an iwi-led response to whānau wellbeing in Te Waipounamu, and an exemplar of what a modern Te Tiriti o Waitangi partnership should look like. It's about taking a "for Māori by Māori" approach to ensure the heritage, mana, whakapapa and cultural identity of our tamariki and whānau are thriving.

As part of this programme, we now seek a suitably qualified individual who has previous experience in standard business analysis methodologies, tools, and techniques.  As a talented Business Analyst, we expect you to manage a variety of workstreams associated with the Whānau as First Navigators programme.  You will be accountable for providing business analysis to the programme team - it's expected that the timeframe for this specific analysis will be 12 months. 

PLEASE NOTE:  Applications will be accepted during our closedown period (24/12/2021 - 10/01/2022), however candidates will not receive an update on their application until after Monday 24th January 2022.

  • At least 3 years' experience in a Business Analyst role
  • Experience in a project focused on social outcomes
  • Strong understanding of system and service development lifecycle
  • Strong understanding of agile methodology and best practice
  • Experience with data analysis and data modelling
  • Leadership and influencing experience
  • Demonstrated openness to learning and embracing a bi-cultural environment and moderating practices to suit.

  • Experience with business case development including stakeholder and cost benefit analysis

  • Excellent collaboration skills in a team environment

The successful applicant will have a strong affinity for the needs and aspirations of our ultimate stakeholders, Ngāi Tahu whānui. Alongside this, they will have an understanding of, or an eagerness to learn and engage with our Ngāi Tahu values and te reo Māori, ka tika!
