Principal Research Advisor – Governance, Policy & Research – Wellington
Closes April 8th 2013
You’ve got the right qualification; you’ve got a solid base of experience…now it’s time to put them to use, with rewarding outcomes. Not least of which is an attractive remuneration package, a supportive and engaged team and opportunities for ongoing development.
As part of the research team, you will be responsible for providing technical and professional leadership, and for delivering quality research services to the business. You’ll be kept busy developing programmes of research, scoping research projects and providing critical analysis for ACC’s research initiatives while also supporting policy advice and service delivery initiatives.
Thanks to your seniority and expert communication skills, you’ll represent the unit at internal and external meetings and provide research advice and support to the team through coaching and mentoring. You will also work with research providers with whom we work to deliver our diverse programme of research and will be a key part of the research relationship networks, both internally and externally. You will also be part of the Research Leadership Team.
We are interested in individuals with advanced skills in drawing research evidence together from a wide range of sources, to support the development of evidence based policy and operational delivery programmes. To be successful in this role, you will need to be a self starter and someone with significant demonstratable research/evaluation experience, who has strong experience in advanced data analysis, survey design, research and evaluation methodologies and dissemmination of research information.
There are opportunities for you at ACC – in fact we think you’ll be surprised how much we can offer you and your career. So don’t you think you owe it to yourself to give us a call?
