A Press Secretary role has come available due to an internal movement within the Government sector. Leading up to the 2017 General Election and working for a highly regarded Minister in a very evident office, this Press Secretary role is largely based on team fit and the ability to think promptly on your feet.

You will have extensive experience working with media and public relations and an understanding of the New Zealand economy would be highly regarded.

To be the right fit for this role, you will have the following:

- Advanced experience in verbal and written communications
- Experience dealing with press and media and the ability to be clear with media objectives
- The ability to plan and develop communication strategies
- Awareness and the aptitude to keep the minister informed with up to date media coverage
- Maintaining relationships with key stakeholders both internally and externally
- Identifying risk and manage any issues that may arise

This person will need to travel at the drop of a hat and be able to obtain top secret security clearance.

If this sounds like your next challenging opportunity and would enjoy working within New Zealand Government please don't hesitate to apply immediately.
