Exciting opportunity to make a real difference to the NZ economy and work with high profile individuals.

  • Provide advice on the Government's macroeconomic response to COVID-19
  • Influence and help deliver complex and challenging policy projects
  • Be part of a supportive, enthusiastic and high performing team

The Treasury is the government's lead economic, financial and regulatory advisor. Our vision is to be a world leading Treasury working towards higher living standards for New Zealanders. We have an opportunity for a talented and high achieving Senior Analyst to join our Macroeconomic & Fiscal Policy team. In this role, you will have a significant opportunity to influence and help shape the macroeconomic policy agenda, including providing advice directly to the Minister of Finance. You will be surrounded by a team full of passionate and curious individuals and have a front row seat to what is happening in the New Zealand economy.

Our team is spearheading a number of high-profile pieces of work and this role provides an opportunity to lead or contribute to a number of projects. The potential areas of focus include:

  • Fiscal strategy- formulating and delivering fiscal strategy advice to the Minister of Finance, including as part of the Treasury's advice on the response to COVID-19
  • Monetary policy - working closely with the Reserve Bank as they implement new monetary policy tools, and advising on monetary policy's interaction with New Zealand's broader macroeconomic response.

There is scope to adapt the exact role to your experience and interests, however, you should be willing and able to work across all areas of macroeconomic policy, as the team's work is highly fluid and priorities can shift quickly.

This role would suit you if you have a tertiary qualification and experience in developing and providing economic or regulatory policy advice. The successful candidate will already have a significant breadth and depth of ideally 5+ years' analytical experience as well as:

  • Strong written and verbal skills, with the ability to communicate complex issues and concepts clearly and succinctly
  • Sound analytical skills and an ability to think critically about complex policy issues
  • Experience working with others to develop agreed solutions
  • Strong interpersonal skills with the ability to manage relationships and to influence
  • Experience coaching and supporting people, projects, or policy processes
  • An organised, proactive mind-set, with the ability to take ownership for their work.

The Treasury values diversity amongst its employees and encourages a positive work/non-work balance with flexible work arrangements so talk to us about flexible work options. We are also happy to consider candidates interested in a secondment opportunity.

Applications close - Wednesday 19th August. All applications must be made online.
