We operate by land, sea and air, manage over 860,000 emergency calls a year and are always actively preventing crime and crashes.

We're working towards specific goals and targets that highlight our intent to work collaboratively with iwi and communities, other government sectors and business partners to deliver ‘Our Business' and achieve long-term change.

About the role the Open-Source Intelligence Group, based in Wellington, is seeking suitably skilled people to fill Open-Source Analyst roles. These positions are crucial to enabling the Group to continue to build on the successes of the past three years and move open-source intelligence collection and analysis to the next level.

As an Open-Source Intelligence Analyst you will have the curiosity and drive to seek the answers to difficult questions through advanced open source research. You will use your initiative and critical thinking skills to identify and understand the information requirements of the Group's partners, leading to analysis that informs enforcement and prevention initiatives.

You will be comfortable talking to others to build your understanding of policing and Intelligence and work directly with people from a wide range of internal and external workgroups and agencies for mutual benefit. You will present analysis through both written reporting and verbal briefings to a range of audiences.

You will also start/continue your journey of learning and development as a skilled Intelligence professional. As well as demonstrating best practice open-source collection and intelligence tradecraft and principles, you will foster a positive and productive team culture. You will hold yourself to a high ethical standard and be diligent about following the compliance and process standards the team observes.

This position would be ideal for individuals with analytical experience wanting the opportunity to broaden their range/experience or for people with a deep passion for open-source intelligence looking for an opportunity to deploy their skill. You may be new to New Zealand Police and would like to learn and develop under the guidance of an experienced Intelligence team.

Key accountabilities develop and maintain a wide range of professional relationships. Excellent skills in OSINT research and analysis. Able to navigate complex issues of open source collection and analysis with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.

What you'll bring being part of the Police whānau is about being our best to ensure our communities are safe and feel safe. Our Core Competencies provide a shared understanding of the behaviours, leadership and technical competence required for success at each level of Police. Whilst we are looking for skills, knowledge and experience relevant to the role, we also place high importance on your state of mind, the alignment of your values with ours, your ability to contribute to and build high performing teams, and the way that you lead yourself or others.

Previous experience working in or with Intelligence is advantageous but not required. We are interested in receiving applications from a range of backgrounds and people who have worked in public or private sector who are excited about a career in New Zealand Police intelligence.
