Provide high level advice, thought leadership, strategic direction and stakeholder management
Work with an experienced and talented team
At Waka Kotahi, the NZ Transport Agency, it all starts with our people. The organisation's performance and success depends on the people who choose to make this a great place to work and make a difference for Aotearoa. The Transport Agency has a strong future focus, understanding that new technologies and changing customer expectations mean the transport system we know today will not be the one we deliver in ten years time.

The purpose of this role is to provide high level advice, thought leadership, strategic direction and stakeholder management. The role positively influences the NZTA strategic objectives by contributing to the provision of high quality and well researched and reasoned data and statistical analysis.
You will apply critical thinking to Transport Agency activities and plans and identify opportunities to provide relevant statistical analysis activities to improve outcomes on all projects.
Your highly developed analytical skills will allow you to undertake complex analysis and interpretation of data contained in the Transport Agency databases.
To be successful in this role, you will bring:
Significant experience in a similar role, working at a senior level in an analytical environment undertaking complex data queries from multiple data bases flexibly.
Proven experience in data manipulation and analysis, and turning raw data into valuable and relevant intelligence and insights.
Sound understanding of Government Open Data initiatives.
Thorough understanding of the principals of the Official Information and Privacy Acts.
Advanced level of computing skill including the use of SQL and R (or similar analytical tool).
Experience in mentoring and coaching other analysts.
