About the role 

Are you a dynamic, information management influencer, a thought-leader and a do-er? Do you have the skills to influence the organisation in adopting good Information Management practices? Do you want to be on the journey of designing and rolling out an ECMS solution and be the Product Owner of ECMS?

At NZQA we are transforming the way we manage our organisational information.
