Te whiwhinga mahi/The Opportunity
We are looking for people as passionate about data as we are. In Sector Insights, we are united in a common goal of using data to drive insights to inform decision making by justice sector leaders. We support justice agencies to work together to deliver ambitious results for a fair and safe Aotearoa.
Your role as an Analyst (Level 1) is a catalyst for change and improvement based on empirical data. Not just hunches or maybes, but well researched, robust data which tells a clear and engaging story.
You will use the data available to you to investigate a myriad of issues facing the justice sector, sometimes with a well-defined hypothesis beforehand, and sometimes to solely explore the data and see what jumps out.
Your natural curiosity and keen analytical skills will illuminate previously undiscovered issues and opportunities for growth; insights, that without this investigation, would remain hidden and the data meaningless. Your role is to communicate the same story, with the same data, across different areas of the business.
Now is an exciting time for you to become part of the Ministry of Justice in Sector Insights as the insights and advice we provide are highly sought after. Our work is characterised by innovation, quality, and impact, and we inform the direction of Justice agencies.
He pūkenga tou/Skills and Experience
To be successful in this role, you will need:
- Passion and curiosity - with a strong desire to explore new opportunities for using data insights
- A positive can-do attitude and willingness to learn
- Flexibility to respond to ambiguity, multiple deadlines and changing priorities
- Strong interpersonal skills to build and manage relationships with diverse stakeholders
- A delivery focus, with persistence to work towards long term goals
- Good communication skills and the ability to translate your findings into a compelling narrative
- A strong sense of team, engaging and helping others around you to succeed
- A tertiary degree in a relevant field
- Experience using analytical software (such as SAS or Excel)

Our work is challenging and complex. Our goals are ambitious. We make a real difference to the New Zealand Justice system. Our teams are sharp-minded, curious and influential.
