Job Description

The Ministry of Education is leading a review of NCEA – and we’re looking for savvy, sharp policy minds to support a new, innovative and dynamic policy process to ensure NCEA delivers equity and excellence for every young New Zealander.

The team

The NCEA review is being led by a programme team within the Secondary Tertiary team, which sits within the Ministry of Education’s Early Learning and Student Achievement group.

The Early Learning and Student Achievement Group sets the system-level learning for every child and student. Working between policy and customer facing functions, there is a significant political, stakeholder and public interest in the high performance of this group and the education curriculum and teaching workforce outcomes we seek for New Zealand.

The NCEA review programme team is responsible for end-to-end delivery of the NCEA review, working alongside other parts of the Ministry, other education agencies, the NCEA Review Ministerial Advisory Group, and the wider education sector.

This role is part of a new analysis and evidence unit within the programme team, which will focus on delivering an iterative, innovative, and collaborative approach to analysis, combining authentic sector collaboration and co-design with sophisticated advice and policy thinking.

The role

The Senior Business Analyst will lead a range of analytical work focused on senior secondary curriculum and assessment, including developing options for monitoring and reporting on system investment and performance, analysing the impact of service design options and prototypes, and analysing and recommending improvements to current investments and interventions.

Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for someone sharp and dynamic with outstanding critical thinking and communication skills, who is comfortable working in a fast-moving environment and taking innovative approaches to analysis and evidence work. We want someone with a comprehensive understanding of how best to use data and evidence to solve complex policy challenges, and how to meaningfully assess success in the social sector.

Our ideal candidate will be:

  • confident in analysing and evaluating business processes and policies
  • savvy and agile, adept at handling ambiguity and complexity
  • an effective and confident communicator
  • an innovative thought-leader who advances the government’s strategic objectives through their work.

Experience and qualifications

We’re looking for a candidate with experience that shows they have the above capabilities, and that they will be able to hit the ground running in this role. The role doesn’t have any qualification or experience requirements, but it would be advantageous if candidates had:

  • a tertiary qualification in a field which privileges data and analysis, critical thinking and clear communication
  • a background in business or data analytics.
