The Reserve Bank of New Zealand – Great Team, Best Central Bank

  • Adviser and Senior Analyst policy positions available
  • All influential and senior-level roles enabling a sound and efficient financial system
  • Wellington-based positions

Are you keen to take your policy experience and interest in economics and the financial sector to a fast moving organisation where your impact will be visible? This role will combine all of your capabilities as a naturally skilled analytical thinker, communicator and relationship manager.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (The Bank) is New Zealand's central bank. Our vision is to be a Great Team and the Best Central Bank. We operate with passion, integrity, innovation and inclusiveness. Our main objective is to promote a sound and dynamic monetary and financial system and to ultimately raise New Zealand's economic wellbeing.

The Role

These policy roles will report to a Policy Manager in our Financial Policy or Resilience Policy Teams where the focus is to develop clear and effective policies that anticipate emerging risks and respond to regulatory obligations such as governance, outsourcing, suitability, disclosure and credit rating requirements. You'll be keeping up with international policy developments and maintaining a regulatory policy framework that is up to date and fit for purpose in an ever-changing local and global landscape. 

A couple of exciting policy issues we are currently working on are the review of bank capital and contributing to the policy development of deposit insurance. Both are important issues that affect all New Zealanders, and this is a chance for you to contribute to them at an exciting time.

About You

As an experienced policy professional who prides yourself on your analytical and influencing capabilities, you'll naturally need to have a strong interest and aptitude for economic concepts and understanding the financial system.

Other strengths you will be able to demonstrate are:

  • proven experience with policy development right through to consultation and industry engagement
  • the ability to communicate well to a range of audiences in verbal and written form
  • a highly collegial approach to working with others to innovate and deliver quality work

The Adviser level position requires a higher-level of capability particularly in terms of technical and thought leadership and project management, where you'll also have a clear affinity for coaching others along the way.

Why us?

We are a fast moving organisation which is growing and innovating to make a bigger impact on the country that we serve. We're offering a supportive and flexible work environment where you'll be encouraged to collaborate, use your initiative and forge strong relationships with a number of stakeholders that will see you make a tangible impact on the financial services sector.

Our work has a big impact on the lives of all New Zealanders, and we carry that responsibility with pride. If you'd like to join a team of professionals who are passionate about the prosperity and wellbeing of New Zealanders, and contribute to a sustainable and productive economy, we would love to hear from you.
