You will lead the Finance Business Partner, Finance Advisor and Performance Analytics and System teams and take overall responsibility for the delivery and management of workflows in line with NZDF’s Finance priorities and strategic vision.  As part of the Senior Finance Leadership team, you will work closely with the Financial Controller and Director Finance Strategy and Modelling to ensure the integrity of actuals, budgets and forecast information as well as supporting cross finance processes and enable NZDF decision makers, strategic partners and government.

You will bring:

  • Extensive and proven successful experience at a leadership level in finance/accounting with a minimum of ten years’ post CA or more practical experience in a finance/accounting role in a similar organisation
  • Ability to gain a high understanding of the NZDF organisation, organisation, its business, its roles, structures and command chains, and the political, social, cultural and economic environment it operates in
