Be our Principal Advisor Levies and play a key role in this mahi by supporting development and delivery of ACC’s future levy collection system and our Levy strategic change programme.


This is a newly created role and the perfect opportunity to provide that step up, to apply your creative approach to design and delivery work with that strategic input across a dynamic customer focused organisation.  You’ll get to lead both cross-agency projects and virtual teams to bring ideas/concepts into delivery programmes.   We’re keen to explore new opportunities and approaches to Levies and welcome your creative solutions.


A bit about you:

You are an influencer, someone who understands how government works and a builder of true relationships. You’ll have supported, led and or designed strategic change programmes and bring a unique and creative approach to this. You apply a partnership approach to your work and understand the value of being collaborative. You are a naturally curious person that embraces diversity and innovation. And you have a talent for using evidence and data to inform your advice.

At ACC we’re committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi by providing space for mātauranga Māori-based approaches to develop tools, actions and knowledge that serve Māori and Tangata Tiriti (non-Māori). Our Te Tiriti o Waitangi direction is guided by the Whāia Te Tika - ‘Pursue What is Right’ – Māori Strategy. It illustrates our commitment to improve Māori access, experience, and outcomes through our role in managing the ACC scheme.

We offer attractive flexible working options, a 9% employer superannuation contribution, development opportunities within ACC, life insurance, discounted Southern Cross health insurance, discounted gym membership, retail discounts and staff banking packages.   

What we are looking for from you to be successful in this role:

  • Effective partnering, consulting and relationship management skills across the government sector and the willingness to work collaboratively.  
  • Proven experience in developing and delivering strategic programmes that balance the interests of multiple stakeholders.
  • Creative thought leadership  
  • Commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its application to your role.


If you can tick off a few of the list above, we’d love to hear from you.  For us, it’s about how you go about your work – the relationships you build along the way.

Working at ACC:

We know that a diverse and inclusive team helps us meet the needs of our customers, and we welcome candidates from every ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, age, and those with a disability or who have additional mental health needs. It is important to us that people are free to be themselves at work. Here are some ways we encourage that:

  • Employee networks to support our colleagues from diverse backgrounds.
  • The option to explore flexible working that suits your needs and ours.
  • Development opportunities in te reo Māori me ngā tikanga.
